AI + You- Boss Fight or Tag Team

Jun 03, 2023

What do you need? Pokémon driving a Mario Kart on the moon in the style of Hammershøi? Some JavaScript to generate vintage 1970-palettes from weather data? The Gestalt laws explained as Finnish gangster rap? AI has got you covered. And it’s all just a text prompt away. No wonder many creators feel threatened and challenged by AI! But, if you consider AI an opponent, the battle is lost before it’s begun. Like facing the invincible final-level boss with zero ammo. Instead, join forces with the AI, to become a fearsome man/machine Tag Team capable of tackling any challenge with the efficiency and grace of a hard-hitting wrestling chair. (Slap)-sticking to this fighting metaphor, Stig and Karsten will draw on “Shu Ha Ri” – a concept from Japanese martial arts – to share their views on human-AI collaboration.
