Dr. Irina Raicu (b. Romania) is a Creative Technologist and an AI/ML Sr. Product Manager.
Irina does not have a formal artistic background. She graduated in Business Informatics from the Bucharest University of Economic Studies.
In addition, Irina pursued a PhD program in Artificial Intelligence and collaborated with Paris1 Sorbonne University.
Irina’s artistic process is a hybrid creative process that combines Artificial Intelligence algorithms with drawings. In her creations, she highlights the devastating effects of climate change through surrealism. Her art concept is a powerful and poignant reminder of the urgent need to address climate change and its effects on our planet. Her objective is not only to raise awareness about this critical issue, but also to inspire and to engage people to take action to protect our environment and our future.
Irina strongly believes that Artificial Intelligence opens a new era of creativity where data becomes the main pigment in creating art. The possibilities provided by AI stimulate a new creative process where the artist can re-think and re-design the approach to creating artworks. It can be done at different levels and stages, and it is always the fruit of human creativity.
The machine does not have consciousness, but it creates together with a human.
