Design, A.I., and Afro-nowism

Thursday, April 25 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm


Tufts University Art Galleries presents the program “Design, A.I., and Afro-nowism.” In 2020 Stephanie Dinkins coined the term “Afro-now-ism,” which she described as “the spectacular technology of the unencumbered black mind.” A play on Afrofuturism, Afro-nowism acknowledges the urgencies of racial injustice, climate disaster, and their collisions by forsaking speculation in favor of immediate action — today. Artificial Intelligence is rapidly changing the way we write, think, design, and produce. Its potentials for and consequences to design, artistic production, student work, and creative thinking are vast and largely unknown. This program’s panel brings together designers, programmers, and academics thinking and working at the intersection of race and Artificial Intelligence to consider both the promise and risks of machine learning and data driven scholarship and design, especially as it relates to just outcomes. Free and open to the public. Reserve you seat through Eventbrite.
