Emergency Symposium "Architectural Informatics from the Perspective of Content Generation AI
Tuesday, November 7, 2023, 13:00-18:00

Generative model AI, which generates and provides new, natural-looking images and sentences at an astonishing speed based on limited information, has suddenly entered a period of widespread use.
Many of the research publications on various content-generating AI are strongly intended for rapid social implementation, a situation where the use of information built on networks over the previous decades can provide that capability at low cost, and where anyone can use the capabilities acquired through automated learning.
The speed at which AI functions, products, and social implementations are being announced one after another may be described as threatening. While AI is having a great impact on the economy and society in a different phase from the past use of AI, it has reached a critical point, and while there are more concrete developments and expectations for AI, there are also aspects that are causing confusion and anxiety. We would like to take this historical milestone as an opportunity to share our awareness of the possibilities and problems through cross-disciplinary discussions.
