- A team of researchers at Rutgers University in New Jersey and Facebook’s AI Lab in California are using AI to create a new system for generating art.
- With this in mind, GAN works to create new styles that evoke a profound human response, perhaps understanding the idea Anthony Bourdain shared in an interview with Crave: “To me, in a perfect work, art causes the people who look at it to run out in the street and get into fistfights over whether its art or not.”
- The second set of human works featured a selection of 25 paintings exhibited at Art Basel 2016.
- “Being shown in Art Basel 2016 is an indication that these are art works at the frontiers of human creativity in paintings, at least as judged by the art experts and the art market,” the researchers determined.
- The experiment continued by testing perception and arousal, asking if participants could determine if the works of art were intentional, if they could see the visual structure of the work, if they felt the works communicated with them, and if they felt inspired and elevated by their interactions with the art.
A new AI program creates new styles of art that some prefer to that of humans.
