Mozilla Foundation Grant

Posted by

In January, Dr. Noel and her team won a grant from the Mozilla Foundation to examine and interrogate the connections between AI and Racial Justice. Titled, “Black Arts + Culture: Generative Traditions with AI and Design in Carnival,” the project uses AI to remix Black histories of design, art, and dance. Archival images of dancing sculptures from the Trinidad Carnival will be mixed with images of Black dancers across the diaspora in a single dataset. A machine learning model will then generate new designs based on this data. The resulting art will be presented via an online gallery and discussions.
