A practical and high-level overview of how generative AI can assist in all facets of the design and illustration process without derailing artistic vision. Focus is placed on using and training Stable Diffusion for greater control.  We will also explore how the tech will continue to affect the industry, and some thorny ethical territory.

In conjuction with this event, The Biggio Center for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in partnership with the Department of Art and Art History annouces an invitation for submissions to a curated AI art exhibition from students, faculty, and professional staff at Auburn University. Learn more about the exhibition, AI-Inspired Visions: Exploring New Artistic Boundries.

This talk and exhibition are a part of the Office of the Provost supported speaker series and resources to engage Auburn University faculty and staff in productive conversations about the implications of artificial intelligence in education. Auburn University faculty and staff are invited to sign up for the Teaching with AI at AU asynchronous, online Canvas course. The student version can be found here.
