Every day we generate, share, and view a tremendous amount of user-generated visual media on YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram.

Integrating visual elements into social media posts, newsletters, web pages and other media formats enhances our ability to attract followers and customers by making content easier to process and understand. AI and computer vision play a key role in this process. AI helps us generate better visual media with our smart phones and enables us to find what we are looking for when we search for visual content. But do these intelligent algorithms and machines also foster our creativity?

Our speakers will discuss the current trends in AI, computer vision, as well as computer graphics research and their application in end user-focused products. They will provide insights into how AI helps us extract the essentials from visual media and how AI can be used for interactive and creative visual media transformation. They will also discuss how AI, in combination with augmented reality, can help people paint.
