SAAI Factory is an attempt to transfer the vision of a decentralized AI Art community into a production format and collaborative platform.
In June 2021, SAAI initiated an international hackathon dedicated to artistic production and artificial intelligence. In the course of four month, hackers, artists, coders, designers, tech evangelists, creatives, and developers from all disciplines came together to explore artificial intelligence as a means and field of artistic practice.
Given the ambition, creativity and innovation that was delivered during the SAAI Factory Hackathon, the judges decided on a shortlist and assigned six awards. Many teams have impressed with new ideas surrounding the intersection of AI and Art as well as AI-creativity. Projects and prototypes from the hackathon will be shown in subsequent showcases and exhibitions around the world, starting with the award ceremony and showcase at the Woods Art Institute in November 2021.
As part of the India Week 2021, SAAI Factory held a showcase and award ceremony at the Woods Art Institute near Hamburg.
