Artificial intelligence in art
The future is now. Artificial intelligence (AI) has arrived and it is learning all the time, telling us what we like and what we need. Hell, computers can even tell jokes, although the delivery needs work.
Naturally, artists are curious about what can be achieved with the help of a robot assistant or an algorithm that adapts to the viewer's every move, and they are using these advances in technology to bring us new experiences. Some are building, testing and teaching software that can create and improve with every mistake – just like a human – while others are utilising virtual reality to trick our brains into thinking we are somewhere else entirely. Like it or not, this is the way things are going.
Should we be sceptical? Should art be the preserve of humans alone? Do you really need to feel emotion in order to produce something emotionally affecting? Why not judge for yourself with our guide to art powered by AI.
