The techniques used in current trends in artificial intelligence are not exactly new. The concept of “generative” artworks and the notion of a “language model” to create an infinity of results are an old dream. Assembling Intelligence – Hybrid Strategies for AI, Art & Design reunites a diversity of approaches that do not oppose the old and the new, seeking instead a form of “lateral thinking” in an era of ever-accelerating technologies.

Anchored in the future of the creative professions, Geneva University of Art and Design has launched a plan of action on artificial intelligence (AI). This includes a new cross-disciplinary Bachelor’s course, in-house staff training, ongoing education, strategic monitoring, development of open source and tailored alternatives, symposia, and research projects. These initiatives position HEAD – Genève as a leading player in the field of digital creation.

The program is curated by Douglas Edric Stanley, Lecturer of Master Media Design at HEAD in Geneva, in collaboration with Anthony Masure, Dean of Research at HEAD. It is facilitated by Audrey Zecchin, Head of International Relations at HEAD. 


Assembling Intelligence is a collaboration between Head Genève and Swissnex in San Francisco.
