Algorithms and Creative Industries: Terms of Engagement

A DERC and Screen & Sound Cultures Research Group Roundtable Discussion

Algorithmic systems, tools and techniques are now widely used across the creative industries. From AI-powered production platforms to personalised user recommendations, these phenomena integrate in uneven and surprising ways with legacy forms of cultural production, distribution and consumption.

This roundtable discussion brings together SMC staff to discuss our collective terms of critical engagement around this issue. Participants will offer brief provocations addressing the following question: What do you see as the most pressing critical issue for analysis of algorithms and their function in creative industries? These provocations will be followed by a general discussion of related implications for research and teaching in SMC, and beyond.

FEATURING Ingrid Richardson, Daniel Binns, Marsha Berry, Ramon Lobato, Scott Brook, Lisa French, Mark Gibson, Anna Hickey-Moody.
