Environmental and Social Sustainability of Creative-Ai

  title={Environmental and Social Sustainability of Creative-Ai},
  author={Andr{\'e} Holzapfel and Petra Jaaskelainen and Anna-Kaisa Kaila},
—The recent developments of artificial intelligence increase its capability for a creation of arts in both largely autonomous and collaborative contexts. In both contexts, Ai aims to imitate, combine, and extend existing artistic styles, and can transform creative practices. In our ongoing research, we investigate such Creative-Ai from sustainability and ethical perspectives. The two main focus areas are understanding the environmental sustainability aspects (material, practices) in the context…

GANSpaceSynth: A Hybrid Generative Adversarial Network Architecture for Organising the Latent Space using a Dimensionality Reduction for Real-Time Audio Synthesis

A novel hybrid GAN architecture is presented that allows musicians to explore the GAN latent space in a more controlled manner, identifying the audio features in the trained checkpoints and giving an opportunity to specify particular audio features to be present or absent in the generated audio samples.

Unraveling the hidden environmental impacts of AI solutions for environment

The different types of AI impacts are reviewed, then the different methodologies used to assess those impacts are presented, and how to apply life cycle assessment to AI services is shown.

It is argued that the DEDA framework is a useful process for ethical evaluation of data projects for public management and an effective tool for creating awareness of ethical issues in data practices.

Learning Transferable Visual Models From Natural Language Supervision

It is demonstrated that the simple pre-training task of predicting which caption goes with which image is an efficient and scalable way to learn SOTA image representations from scratch on a dataset of 400 million (image, text) pairs collected from the internet.
