  1. I like how Christie's frames this discussion in their headline, https://www.christies.com/features/A-collaboration-between-two-artists-one-human-one-a-machine-9332-1.aspx that AI is a medium, not the actual artist. But, of course, this is not how the AI world sees this, nor other AI creative endeavors such as in these articles: https://www.smithsonianmag.com/science-nature/these-abstract-portraits-were-painted-by-an-artificial-intelligence-program-180947590/ https://arxiv.org/abs/1706.07068 https://futurism.com/a-new-ai-can-write-music-as-well-as-a-human-composer/ http://web.mit.edu/allanmc/www/benjamin.pdf https://www.newscientist.com/article/2139184-artificially-intelligent-painters-invent-new-styles-of-art/ https://sputniknews.com/science/201711211059311031-artificial-intelligence-spots-forged-paintings/ As I've regularly written, if there is ever an AI that burns out and commits suicide at 27, that's when I'll believe AI is creative. https://natureofthebeat.svbtle.com/ai-commits-suicide-at-27-years-old-news-at-11 Some of the arguments I have made about humanity and art vs algorithms does make me reflect on how different we are from AI. I like to think artists have a passion that an AI cannot replicate. But as many artists have said about this drive, how can they do anything else? Isn't that the same thing, though as the AI, how can it do anything else? If art is part of our human nature as created by a Creator, is this not the same or similar thing as an AI? I did read an article that I think posed the right question (I can't find that link) can an AI that is not directed to create choose to create? I think this also poses other questions. If art if quantifiable, that there truly are objective standards that are discernible and objective, what is left but to push out the humanity in art? Even GO, which assumes a required human intuitive, creative nature has been conquered by AI. GO still is built on a set of rules and a definable outcome that can be programmed. Is art the same? This is where I usually diverge from those who think art has to be objective and require a set of standards. If that is true, why do we need humans? What do humans bring to art that cannot be replicated by an AI? https://natureofthebeat.svbtle.com/for-the-humanity-in-art I'm really not posting my blog articles to drive traffic, just as starting points for conversation. There is a lot to love about Svbtle.com, but they do not have a commenting system where a conversation can occur. Besides, I think I posed the questions here so it doesn't really require going out to my blog. Just some thoughts in hopes to generate a conversation. Joe
