Well done! You’ve made it to the end of our two-week introductory course on creative AI.

You’ve gained a high level perspective on what creative AI is and what issues are currently important in the field. You’ve also seen what practitioners are doing with the technology, how machine learning systems are built and what skills you would need if you were to pursue a career in creative AI.

You’ve seen videos featuring some of the leading figures in the field. They took you through their own practice, their motivations for getting into this area, and their philosophies on what it means to create art using this technology.

Importantly, you’ve also taken part in discussions with your fellow learners. This has given you the opportunity to develop your own understanding of the issues at hand, and also engage with alternative ideas. We hope you’ve found that useful and inspiring.

Further learning

If you would like to progress on to the next stage, why not take our four-week course in creative AI where you can move on to build your own simple machine learning prototypes in JavaScript using the MIMIC platform?

In addition, there are now excellent programmes offered by the Creative Coding Institute at UAL which include:

You can also browse a selection of longer in-depth courses on creative computing in the program A Practical Guide to Essential Creative Technologies. You’ll be able to participate in more practical activities to extend your knowledge of this key area.
