NL AIC launches National AI Course for the creative industry: All you need to know



Last update:

The Dutch AI Coalition (NL AIC) announced the launch of  the National AI Course for Creative Industry in collaboration with the Top Sector Creative Industry. 

The course aims to familiarise the creative and cultural sector with AI and show how it can be implemented in the workplace. 

The online course is free, lasts about three hours, and can be taken at one’s own pace and time, says NL AIC. The Dutch AI Coalition launched the course officially on June 21, 2022, at the Teylers Museum in Haarlem.

What can you expect?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is playing a crucial role in the creative and cultural sector. In the AI course, Nadia Piet (founder of AIxDesign) takes students through 10 tracks that can be followed at an individual’s own pace. 

The tracks explain basic concepts of AI such as machine learning, algorithms, and deep learning, and highlight different creative and cultural domains. 

“For example, we hear from media companies NPO and RTL how they use AI for diversity in programmes. Startups like Lalaland talks about artificial photo models, and news website highlights how AI is applied in journalism. Examples of AI in dance, music, books, theatre, and heritage are also discussed. Of course, we also look at the preconditions and future possibilities for AI to be successful. Can AI actually be creative? And what is your responsibility as a creative maker?” says NL AIC.

- A message from our partner -

The course is designed particularly for creative and cultural professionals in various domains – from museums, libraries, and culture and media organisations to the performing arts, designers, journalists, and more. At the end of the course, students earn a certificate.
