Creative AI Lab
The Creative AI Lab is a collaboration between Serpentine R&D Platform and the Department of Digital Humanities, King’s College London. New approaches to aspects of Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning (AI/ML) including interface design, production and engagement have emerged from artistic practices. The aim of the lab is to surface this ‘back-end’ knowledge and link it to wider artistic and curatorial practices in order to overcome the existing ‘black-box’ narratives. Through the lens of art-making, the lab produces knowledge for cultural institutions, artists, engineers and researchers on how to engage AI/ML as media. Additionally, the lab aims to develop institutional capacities to engage with these media for the benefit of the wider cultural sector.
The Creative AI Lab currently investigates:
- AI tools supporting artistic practices
- The changing nature of artistic and curatorial practices as a result of working with AI/ML
- Creative AI as a critical practice
- Aesthetics of AI/ML

The Creative AI Lab database is an ongoing project to aggregate tools and resources for artists, engineers, curators & researchers interested in incorporating machine learning (ML) and other forms of artificial intelligence (AI) into their practice. Resources in the database come from Creative AI Lab's partners and network; tools cover a broad spectrum of possibilities presented by the current advances in ML like enabling users to generate images from their own data, create interactive artworks, draft texts or recognise objects.
