This series is organised by Ruairi Glynn, Programme Director of Design for Performance & Interaction MArch.

Speaker biography

Andreas Refsgaard is an artist and creative coder based in Copenhagen, who uses algorithms and machine learning to make unconventional connections between inputs and outputs. For example, some of his most recent projects allow participants to play music using only eye movement and facial gestures, transform drawings of musical instruments on paper into real compositions and train algorithms to decide what is funny or boring. 

Andreas has been published in New Scientist, Vice, Gizmodo, PSFK and Designboom, and he is a regular contributor to ml4a, a free resource on machine learning for artists. His work has been awarded by Interaction Awards and Core77 and has been exhibited in museums and festivals in Europe, North America, Asia and Australia. Commercially, Andreas has worked with international clients such as Google Creative Labs, Carlsberg, Philips and LittleBits and regularly takes on freelance work as a creative technologist.
