INESC TEC; University of Porto
Miguel Carvalhais is a designer and musician. He is an assistant professor at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Porto. He studies computational systems and their use in creative practices with these, having dedicated his PhD research to the subject and later published a book on the topic, “Artificial Aesthetics”. His research and artistic practice explore how computational and procedural systems are read by humans, and how procedural discovery and interpretation are paramount for the creation of meaning and the aesthetic experience. These have led him to focus on fields such as the legibility of processes, philosophy of computation, artificial creativity, emergence, serendipity, ethics, artificial intelligence, legible AI and the right to explanation. Since 2003 he runs the Crónica label for experimental music and sound art. Since 2013 he has helped to run the xCoAx conference on Computation, Communication, Aesthetics and X.
