Robot Artists: Welcoming The New Trend of Artificial Intelligence in Art
Artificial intelligence is known to supersede humans in every context. Be it movements or expressions; AI can do anything in a matter of seconds. This Advanced technology is known to focus on a better future through the use of progressive technology. Irrespective of discipline, artificial intelligence offers a wide array of solutions for your daily challenges.
Humans are at every step forced to ideate unique creations to match the level of artificial intelligence. We are experiencing a digital revolution at every step. Our ideas are being challenged by new ones each day. By the end of the 21st century, we will either be the slaves of artificial technology, or it will be at our fingertips – thus assuring us a leap of faith towards technology. In the coming times, will AI be looked at as a collaborator or as a master? We shall be answering this question in the ensuing paragraphs.
You might look at AI as a relaxation tool because it gives you an eye to look at the beauty amidst the chaos. Artists are well-versed in different schools of thought, which allows them to formulate an ideology of themselves to connect values with that of their work. AI will sure provide you with a hint of yellow in the cold blue weather, but human intelligence and creativity will never allow AI to subdue its intuitive understanding of patterns.
Artificial intelligence is slowly and steadily creeping into every aspect of a human’s life.
We are, in some way or the other, dependent on AI to provide solutions for our daily problems, so is it possible for AI to replace humans’ creativity? Will AI overshadow your existence?
Such questions crawl into your mind every day, leading you to a deeper and more intellectual discussion on this issue. No one can put a stop to the baby steps taken by AI in the contemporary scenario. Let us take a look at the influence of AI in the world of art.
Researchers and technology enthusiasts are creating new tools every day to bridge the gap between mankind and AI. According to them, AI opens up a plethora of possibilities for generating poetry, paintings, music, and whatnot. You name it, and AI will create it! This is possible by feeding examples on examples to a computer till it detects a unique pattern and creates something out of it. No one is taking up such research for fun. Researchers are trying to prove that AI is the future of creativity. You will need to take it up as a collaboration rather than some adverse consequence of technology.
AI art is mainly produced in simplistic terms through GAN. Generative Adversarial Network consists of two machine intelligence software that operates against each other. The generator and the discriminator are known as twin machine brains, which are contradictory in terms of operation. The generator creates random objects when a large data set is given to the GAN. Then the discriminator takes these sounds and matches them with artistic pictures. The interconnected layers of AI are loosely modeled on the human brain, which has guided many recent advancements in artificial intelligence. The idea of GANs has caught the interest of people.
Since the late 1950s, when a group of engineers at the University of Stuttgart began experimenting with computer graphics, artists have been using computers to create works. The use of computers, plotters, and algorithms for producing visually appealing objects has been explored by artists as well.
“I believe, or at least I wish, by knowing the part of ourselves that we aren’t even aware of, AI can help us break away from who we are as an individual and go beyond the boundaries of culture, gender, race, ethnicity, age, class and so on. I would say it’s like a dance performed by a pair of twins — we’re the light and shadow that are inseparable from each other.”
Despite the growing use of AI by industry, disagreements and sometimes negative views on the application of AI remain.
A Blumberg Capital survey published by Forbes showed that 50 percent of American consumers felt optimistic about artificial intelligence, while the rest felt fearful. Only 26 percent knew that they communicate with AI at least once a day, while 53 percent think of AI as robots and 40 percent think of self-driving vehicles, and 58 percent get AI data from movies and TV or social media.
As AI advances not only in the manufacturing, finance, and health sectors but also in education, we can’t help but wonder what the effect of AI would be on the creative industries.
A paradigm shift is observed when the role of machines exceeds being a tool and extends to being the creator. This change also tackles the phenomenon of converting machines into musicians from becoming objects. Machines or computer programs, in this case, escalate to an active role in the making of art. They are no longer passive instruments for serving citizens but contributing actors with autonomous capabilities. Much of the debate regarding the use of AI, including art, is currently colored by a great misunderstanding of technology. The general public has been conditioned by decades of science fiction, to equate any invocation of AI with what technologists and academics would call “artificial general intelligence,” or a computer with the ability to think openly, learn without particular instruction, and maybe even feel emotions.
AI has helped usher in an entirely new style of art, away from the more conventional forms of art. Art that revolves around encounters rather than just unique pieces. Leading artistic groups have worked hard to integrate technology and creativity to generate massive opportunities for the public, capturing the world’s attention and winning multiple accolades. The development of art itself focuses on one of the more contentious aspects of AI. For many people, the production of art can be overwhelming and a little intimidating. Soon, a time will come when people knowing a few lines of code will create brilliant masterpieces, forcing us to redefine innovation and art itself. It is widely accepted that an artist can claim authorship simply by choosing a final picture; however, where possible, they should be upfront about the sources.
Apart from the debate on AI and art, AI has many benefits. By decreasing mundane administrative duties, it can streamline the schooling system and thus give teachers more time with their students. AI also has the ability, both in the way we evaluate and treat patients, to revolutionize healthcare. The mobility of persons with unique disabilities can be enhanced by AI. It can help forecast the potential of natural disasters and battle large-scale disasters such as wildfires.
AI is now writing both news and fiction! In 2014, an article was automatically created by the algorithm regarding an earthquake that had just hit a city. These advancements are designed to generate basic news items with as little human involvement as possible, leaving editorial staff and reporters free to concentrate their energies on more complicated or nuanced tasks such as studies or opinion pieces. They also use AI to demonstrate the path to a good future, which each of us will reap the benefits of.
Art is not only posing crucial questions concerning AI but also about proposing substantial solutions. It’s the art that keeps modern technology to account and those that make it.
