Google Summer of Code 2024


In 2024 HumanAI plans to participate in the program as a GSoC umbrella organization. The HumanAI organization will broaden student participation in machine learning projects over a wide variety of arts and humanities fields. HumanAI participants will be mentored by domain experts and artists at top research universities and laboratories on research projects at the cutting edge of arts and humanities. Projects span a wide range of domains, including arts, music, languages, history, choreography, theatre, literature etc.

For Students

In 2024 GSoC students work with their mentors to produce open-source codes that apply machine learning solutions to art and humanities. Projects span three evaluation periods that allow for students and mentors to collaborate on their project and evaluate student progress. Detailed rules for the GSOC program can be found here. Interested students should look at the ideas page and contact the mentors. Candidates will be asked to complete an evaluation test for each project they apply to demonstrate the skills needed for the respective projects. In the next step, students will produce a proposal which will be evaluated for final student selection.

Proposals need to be submitted via GSoC portal by April 2

Projects in 2024


The ArtExtract project aims at using artificial intelligence in combination with multi-spectral imaging techniques to gain insight in ancient paintings and other form of fine art.

List of proposals

While AI is re-shaping many facets of life today, its impact on the arts has garnered a particular interest by the general public. AI-generated artistic outputs are growing increasingly sophisticated, but artists themselves are too often left out of the development process for such tools, yielding a stark societal divide between AI developers and the artists who inspire them. Moreover, dance as an artistic discipline has been historically overlooked and misunderstood by the AI community. The mission of this project is to put dancers and technologists directly in conversation to construct radical new tools for AI-enabled choreography that are both state-of-the-art and artist-led.
