In today's digital landscape, the fusion of design and artificial intelligence (AI) is transforming how we create, communicate, and interact with the world around us. 

Moholy - Nagy University of Art and Design invites you to our one-day conference, "Emerging Technology Conference – AI in Art and Design", where we will explore the dynamic intersection of design and cutting-edge technology.

Intersection of Art, Design and Emerging Technologies

Discover the symbiotic relationship between art, design, and emerging technologies, and how these disciplines converge to redefine creativity and expression.

Our event provides a platform for cross-pollination of ideas, fostering collaboration between educational institutions and businesses.

We envision the creation of research groups, partnerships, and collaborations that will propel the field of design into the future.
