The magic of ai gen­er­ated Art­works

Technowize Magazine - - Haute Money -

Pre­dic­tive Art bot (@predar­bot) is an ac­count on Twit­ter, which is nei­ther pre­dic­tive, nor a bot try­ing to amass thou­sands of fol­low­ers with me­dia art. in fact, it as­sim­i­lates the head­lines of ar­ti­cles re­cently pub­lished on web­sites spe­cial­iz­ing in hac­tivism, and then it ran­domly turns them into ti­tles for

po­ten­tial art­works. The ba­sic idea be­hind it is to ex­plore the in­ter­sec­tion be­tween art and tech­nol­ogy. The pro­ject was launched in De­cem­ber 2016, by Maria Roszkowska and Ni­co­las Mai­gret. The duo is invit­ing artists to col­lab­o­rate with the bot, and in­ter­pret some of the most provoca­tive tweets and turn them into real pro­to­types. A few weeks ago, they even man­aged to re­ceive grants from well-known me­dia art fes­ti­vals to fi­nance and ex­hibit some of their ex­per­i­ments.

The art bot will help gen­er­ate and pub­lish new ex­pres­sions of hy­po­thet­i­cal artis­tic con­cepts, based on trends in var­i­ous fields. Some of which also in­clude tran­shu­man­ism, ac­tivism, oc­cultism, medicine, ecol­ogy, eco­nomics, etc.

The idea of in­volv­ing Ai into cre­ativ­ity might seem a lit­tle idio­syn­cratic. it is seen as one of the big­gest trend fore­casts of 2017, .i.e. Ai as artist. Ai will be seen di­rect­ing movies, com­pos­ing mu­sic, cre­at­ing video games, etc. be­fore you know it, a ro­bot will bag a Golden Globes or even the Os­car.
