Over the last few months, the state-of-field has changed dramatically with the release of new techniques for advanced computing. Certain forms of artificial intelligence and machine learning have begun producing images with recognizable artistic "styles." These image-generation algorithms raise serious questions for the discipline of art history, which has spent more than two centuries studying the question of "style" from diverse angles. We aim to convene a group of scholars at the University of Pittsburgh for a day-long workshop who are willing and able to think openly and generously about how art history can participate in these culture-critical conversations about artificial image generation and the humanities. The workshop will take place on Friday, December 16th on site at the Visual Media Workshop, on which date we offer breakfast, lunch, and dinner to fuel the conversation. We are also seeking funding to reimburse travel and lodging expenses. Each participant will prepare a short presentation that responds to, and extends upon, the theme of the workshop (circulated to participants). To foster a free exchange of ideas, this workshop will be closed and only include the convenors, participants, and a select few members of our local technologists and members of the DH community.
