CHAIR II: Second Interdisciplinary Workshop on Human/AI Interaction organised by the Department of Philosophy, UoN, Department of Computer Science, UoN and Horizon, UoN

The aim of the CHAIR workshop is to contribute to network building and create an infrastructure to kick-start new partnerships and research collaborations between different disciplines working on the field of Human/AI Interaction e.g. Computer Science, Law, English, Philosophy, Psychology, Engineering, Sociology, Anthropology, Arts, etc.


This workshop combines perspectives from different disciplines researching Human/AI Interaction to focus on the areas of creativity, art, documentation and responsibility relating to AI ecosystems.

Keynote Speaker

Professor Gabriella Giannachi, University of Exeter, Department of English.


Testing the use of AI for art documentation.


This presentation is a hybrid of two different research papers offered at LIMA’s 2024 Unfold in Amsterdam and at Reading’s 2024 DH conference. The paper reflects Gabriella Giannachi’s current thinking about the potential of the use of AI in the documentation of complex and hybrid artworks. This research has been supported by the AHRC-funded BRAID project, led by Lydia Farina. The paper will introduce key practices and problematics in art documentation and key distinctions in the documentation of artworks for archives and collections before introducing three artist case studies and analysing suggestions as to the potential use of AI in the documentation and conservation of complex hybrid art.
