Welcome to IAT-888 (temporary numbering) Web page. This course is devoted to the study of the theory and practice of metacreation, that is the design of generative and pro-active
computer softwares endowed with creative behaviour.
Tools and techniques from artificial intelligence, artificial life and machine learning will be introduced and
exemplified through the study of previous artistic/fdesign works using them. The course will be organized so that making
a project by exploring metacreation in your area of research becomes the primary focus. The interweaving of
related theoretical and practical issues will help you situate your work within a larger perspective on art, science
