Artificial Intelligence in Digital Culture

A one-year curriculum development project on artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning.

This project aims to foster a transdisciplinary environment where humanities and STEM students can think critically, engage, and interact with technical and social constructions of machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms and systems. At Arizona State University in the School of Arts, Media and Engineering (AME), we already offer a unique B.A. in Digital Culture. This grant will support the design of an undergraduate curriculum specialized track for our Digital Culture B.A. focused on humanistic and socio-cultural engagement with AI. This track will feature a core set of classes with complementary domain knowledge that we anticipate including, What Algorithms Want?; Science Fiction; Foundational Representations for AI; Creativity and Responsibility; and Speculative Futures for AI.
