UVM Art + AI Research Group Phase 2 (2021)

Project Information

AI, cluster, collaboration, cuda, python, supercomputing, visualization
Project Status: Recruiting
Project Region: Northeast
Submitted By: Jennifer Karson
Project Email: jkarson@uvm.edu
Project Institution: University of Vermont
Anchor Institution: NE-University of Vermont

Expected project duration (in months): June and July 2021
Mentors: Keri Toksu
Students: Recruiting

Project Description

The UVM Art + AI Research Group is seeking artist-programmers who have a solid understanding of geometry, coding skills in Processing, Java or Python, and who have interest and ability to work with digital visual tools such as Adobe Creative Suite (education will be provided). These team members will assist us in the creation of training sets that will serve our aesthetic and ethnographic research on the VACC. Projects will include digitizing artworks, defining genetic traits within our existing genetic algorithm and optimizing our image generation on the VACC. The genetic traits we wish to develop further include grid variables such as point, line and plane; micro and macro spatial relationships; and color palette. We are excited to welcome these new artist-researchers into our research group and they will participate in our team bi-weekly meetings where they can expect mentoring, education and hands-on learning in the realm of machine learning.

Milestone One: Digitization of artworks for two new training sets.
Milestone Two: Programming of new genetic traits, based on color palette, for a genetic algorithm.
Milestone Three: Provide samples for three new datasets that incorporate the work of milestone one and two.
