※ “Learning by Practice” Course
This year, Cloud Gate Artistic Director CHENG Tsung-lung teamed up with Daito MANABE, using AI and technology to transform dancers’ muscles and breaths during performances into data. By bringing art and computer program together, a dance performance titled “WAVES” that overcomes dancers’ physical limitations was created. Prior to this dance performance, we will share on social media a variety of visual works co-created by YANG Yu-chiao and AI, where the visual works can be used to complement WAVES, and vice versa.
This lecture will allow the audience to better understand the role of AI in people’s daily lives in the future, and familiarize them with human-AI collaboration. Through simple on-site demonstrations and interactions, the audience will learn to appreciate the depth and marvelousness of WAVES from an AI perspective.
