AI, Entertainment & the Creative Arts - The Real World Implications (A Round Table Discussion)
Welcome to my special 50th episode of my Fearless Media podcast - a special one indeed. I recently hosted an AI-focused round table with guests that included Grammy award-winning artist and musician Alex Ebert (Edward Sharpe), AI artist and data scientist Aya, metaverse creator and influencer Don Allen Stevensen III, and IP attorney and expert Mike Kasdan. The Q&A actually begins at the 6:44 mark after initial introductions.
We discussed the Artist, Creator, Business and Legal implications of it all - and perhaps most importantly, the "Human" implications of it all - in a lively discussion that gets very "real" about how AI impacts all of our jobs and our lives in the Creative Arts (not to mention life in general). Critically, the panel goes deep into the very meaning of "Art" and "Creativity" itself and whether AI ultimately de-values creativity and leads to a morass of artistic mediocrity and conformity.
