Speaker Series: Keynote - Working creatively in the age of AI
In this densely illustrated talk, Scott explores how we can maximize our human creative potential in the face of the tidal wave of capabilities from the latest AI tools. He explores the trajectory of the field of AI, covering critical ideas that have led to the latest tools.
