Why do we create art?  Do you have to be human to make art? That is, is “art” created by an artificially intelligent machine art?

Utah State University physicist David Peak explores these questions at USU’s Science Unwrapped public outreach program Friday, March 23. Peak, a professor in USU’s Department of Physics, presents “Do Androids Dream of Electric Art?” at 7 p.m. in the Emert Auditorium, Room 130, of the Eccles Science Learning Center on USU’s Logan campus.

Hosted by USU’s College of Science, admission is free and all ages are welcome. Refreshments and hands-on learning activities conducted by USU students and faculty members, along with community groups, follow Neely’s talk.

The March 23 presentation is the third of four events in Science Unwrapped’s Spring 2018 “Science of Art” Series, celebrating USU’s “Year of the Arts.” An additional presentation is scheduled for April 20.
