AC/E Digital Culture Annual Report 2022. FOCUS: Artificial Intelligence and Creation
The AC/E Digital Culture Yearbook is the result of internal reflection undertaken in 2013 by Acción Cultural Española on how to incorporate the digital dimension into its objectives and support the digitization of the cultural sector. It is, therefore, a publication that reflects the impact that the Internet is having on our society in order to deepen the transformation of the cultural sector and help its entities and professionals to create experiences in line with the expectations of users of the Internet. XXI century.
The Yearbook, with its analysis and identification of success stories in the application of new digital tools, allows professionals to learn about the latest trends in this field so that they can incorporate them into their work methodologies, thus increasing their presence in the website as well as that of the entities for which they work. It is, therefore, a publication that ultimately facilitates the dissemination of artistic and cultural content in the great public space that is the Internet.
The 2022 edition, which has a new advisory board, is structured in a first part in which professionals and specialists from the digital sector analyze trends in the world of culture in a transversal way and touching all disciplines, and a second, the Focus, in which we identify and define cases of good practice in the use of artificial intelligence (AI) for artistic creation. AI has become not only a science and a technology, but also a true cultural phenomenon, a philosophical construction of which we can say that it is all these things as well as that it is none of them and that has been, rather, it is about a pure fable. This chimaera has been updated over the years. Through case studies, we review how AI can function as a creative tool of established cultural practices and its creative potential in its own right. This represents a resounding step forward in the process of digital transformation of culture and society.
The yearbooks are published in Spanish and English, in PDF and EPUB formats, and for free download under a Creative Commons license both on the Spanish Cultural Action website, in the digital publications section, and with the main national and international digital book distributors.
