Where did all of this come from, and how did we go from “AI winter” to an all-too-hot summer? Where are we and where are we going? What are the latest discoveries and achievements in the field of AI and their social consequences as well as the expected directions and dynamics of their development? If you are asking yourself these questions, Jacek Nagłowski’s virtual course is definitely for you.
Over the past two years, there has been an unprecedented acceleration in the development of artificial intelligence systems, mainly generative models capable of processing textual, visual and audio information, which have begun to affect many areas of our lives and communication.

However, the scale of the phenomena we are facing in 2023 has exceeded the fantasies of even the most committed enthusiasts: OpanAI’s introduction of the ChatGPT service, whose market adoption is many times faster than the most dynamic of any product to date in any field, the emergence of generative models within video and 3D, the bringing of generative models within image to full controllability on the one hand and excellent quality on the other, the implementation of AI first in applications for creators, then in search engines and web browsers, then in office tools by Microsoft and Google, and finally the presentation and availability of the GPT-4 model for all these applications, the bimodality of the latter (the ability to recognise and interpret text and images at the same time) and the possibility of linking it to any service. And all this happened in the last few weeks…
“How is creativity possible in this rapidly changing landscape? What can it currently consist of? How do we enter into collaborations with AI systems so that the results of such collaborations are as valuable as possible for creators and audiences? I will seek to answer these and related questions with the course participants,”
says Jacek Nagłowski, tutor of an online training “Artificial Intelligence in audiovisual art”.

Jacek Nagłowski will also be present at the Film Spring Open Workshop in Krakow.
We warmly invite you to sing up for the film course online but also to meet live and work together during the workshops in Krakow!
Jacek Nagłowski: philosopher, film producer and director, researcher and creator in the field of new media. He has produced nearly thirty documentaries and feature films, most of them international co-productions awarded at international festivals (10 x Grand Prix). His documentary “Gugara” (producer, co-writer, co-director, editor) won, among others, the Bronze Lajkonik and the TVP Award at the Krakow Film Festival, was selected for the ACID section of the Cannes Film Festival and was purchased by the Paris Museum of Contemporary Art Centre Pompidou.
The company he co-founded, Circus Digitalis, develops 3D digital imaging solutions. Since 2015 he has been working on virtual reality issues. Together with Milenia Fiedler and Iwona Pomianowska, he initiated a project to study the language of cinematic VR at the Film School in Łódź. He has been working on issues related to artificial intelligence since 2021. He is currently working on an interactive VR experience “Conversations” co-created with various AI systems ranging from text, image, sound and space creation in the Unreal engine. The experience thematises the possibilities of coexistence and relationships between humans and AI systems.

Remember that the Film Spring Open is not only the Workshop. Participants get the opportunity to develop projects under the supervision of experts throughout the year during online courses and individual consultations. E-learning assumes access to theoretical knowledge that can be used in practice during stationary workshops.Among the courses offered as part of Film Spring Open online, there are also classes in: scriptwriting with Mateusz Pacewicz, acting improvisations with Aleksandra Konieczna, documentary film with Paweł Łoziński, film production with Agata Szymańska, and SFX make-up with Marian Folga and Wiktoria Wędzicha etc.
More information about the rules of participation can be found on our website.
