Artificial Intelligence (AI) has exploded into our collective consciousness of late and promises to affect all of our lives in unprecedented and unexpected ways. The Academy of Art University School of Graphic Design invites you to join us as we examine the professional implications (both good and bad) of the various generative image and text-driven applications now available. A panel of industry experts, faculty and alumni will share work, discuss innovations, and explore the possibilities (and consequences) these developments represent for students, academia, the broader design community, and society at large.

This event is produced in partnership with AIGA San Francisco in conjunction with the chapter’s 40th anniversary. This free event will take place both in-person and virtual—but registration is required.

In-person attendees should arrive by 5pm, the Zoom link will open at 5:15. Join virtually here:
