Robb and Josh have a philosophical conversation about art, creativity, and perception with Laura Herman, researcher at the University of Oxford’s Oxford Internet Institute. As a tool for creating, generative AI is changing the way we think about art what constitutes artistry. The artistic process will always require human hands and human input, as a piece of art isn’t really finished until someone experiences it. Covering synesthesia, UX research, and possible outcomes for the heightened levels of technology intertwined in our daily lives, this discussion provides ample food for thought.

Laura Herman is a researcher at the University of Oxford’s Oxford Internet Institute. Her work examines the impact of algorithmic curation on global visual cultures, with a focus on inclusivity and the Global South. Laura is also a fellow at OII-Dieter Schwarz and Erasmus University Rotterdam FemLab.

At Adobe, Laura leads a team researching emerging creative technologies and platforms. Her previous creative applications have been recognized as Apple’s “App of the Day” and received a Webby People’s Choice Award. With a background in Neuroscience & Psychology from Princeton, Laura explores how technology influences human artistry and has exhibited her own projects at prestigious venues like the Tate and Ars Electronica.

Laura’s curatorial and research work has garnered attention from media outlets like BBC, Forbes, and Newsweek. Passionate about promoting creativity, she serves on the Boards of Trustees for arts organizations, Eastside, and the Old Fire Station.
