Coming this August:*
A design + interaction + AI hackathon for creators!
The Inria creartathon is a creative hackathon combining art and science in a Creative Hackathon where multi-disciplinary teams of five students collaborate on the design of a intelligent interactive object. This year’s challenge: Designing a creative, intelligent & interactive artifact for an artist (visual arts, music, sculpture, dance, theater) that creates a true artist-computer partnership. This event is organised by the Université Paris-Saclay, with the Inria Saclay - Île-de-France research center, and Societies.
The creartathon is an initiative of Inria, the University of Paris-Saclay and the association Societies, supported by the French Ministry of Culture and major players in the worlds of art, design and digital sciences.
If you are a Masters or Ph.D. student in Art, Design, Human-Computer Interaction or Artificial Intelligence and want to spend a week brainstorming, designing, and implementing an intelligent interactive object, apply! Enrollment is limited.
Workspace, food, equipment and materials will by the organisers (possible accommodation depending on your location). HCI and AI faculty from Inria and the Université Paris-Saclay will teach Master Classes, and each team will be coached by a confirmed artist.
