The Lab of Augmented Creativity stands at the forefront of the arts and science nexus, harnessing the power of science and technology to test and radically advance the future of creative practice and research in visual arts, music, screen arts and storytelling. The Lab focuses on three primary research themes: Augmenting Human Creativity, Artificial Intelligence & Human-Machine Collaboration, and Public Policies & Strategies for the Creative Industries. This Lab is well-poised to offer a powerful interdisciplinary framework to describe the fluid complexity of human and AI creativity, and it aims to design and invent a model that can expand creative opportunities for broad and meaningful social impact and engagements. We are actively recruiting prominent and leading researchers, who strive to achieve ground-breaking and world-leading research outputs and projects in AI and music, writing, film and the visual arts, to elevate HKBU’s academic and research standing as a nationally and globally-leading centre of AI and Creativity.
