This presentation explores the intricate relationship between tradition and innovation in the dance arts domain, bolstered by AI tools’ transformative capabilities, with a focus on ethical considerations rooted in sincerity. Recognizing the pervasive influence of the arts in various scientific and societal realms, we delve into the catalytic power of artistic engagement, nurturing interdisciplinary collaboration and holistic understanding.

Drawing inspiration from the enchanting tale of the ballet Coppélia, we delve into the evolving interplay between human, natural, and artificial realms, illuminating the nuanced dynamics within this complex relationship. »Employing a deliberative pooling method, we aim to facilitate a comprehensive dialogue highlighting the seamless integration of tradition, innovation, and the evolving landscape of AI-driven artistic expression,« says Professor Siu.

»Through our discourse, we seek to reimagine traditional narratives and push the boundaries of artistic exploration, emphasizing the distinctive interplay between artificial replication and the profound authenticity of human expression,« adds Professor Christelbauer. As a collaborative decision-making process, deliberative pooling encourages harmonizing diverse perspectives and expertise, fostering a collective consensus.
