Caterina Moruzzi, Chancellor’s Fellow
Dr Caterina Moruzzi is a Chancellor’s Fellow in Design Informatics at the University of Edinburgh, working at the intersection between the philosophy of art, history and philosophy of human and artificial creativity, and the philosophy of AI. In her ongoing projects, she investigates modes of shared agency and creativity between humans, data, and technology and the disruptive effects that emerging technological innovations can have on creative labour.
Her insights on art practices and the art sector come from her background as a classically trained pianist, while she deepened her expertise in philosophy of art during her Ph.D. (University of Nottingham, 2018) and the research of the latest years.
Since 2021, she closely collaborates with the Oxford Internet Institute and Adobe Research in projects which investigate public attitudes of reception of algorithmic content creation and curation. This collaboration resulted in several publications and in the organisation of the workshop “The Role of Embodiment in Human & Artificial Creativity” at the International Conference of Computational Creativity in 2022.
She is part of the project “Embodied Agents in Contemporary Visual Art (EACVA),” funded by the AHRC-DFG in collaboration with Goldsmiths College, University of London. The project addresses questions of embodiment, creativity, and aesthetic value in human-machine co-creation.
