AI Art

Where we are

Artworks by algorithms are being sold at auction and exhibited in the contemporary art-world, thrilling curators but shocking traditionalists. Pieces like Portrait of Edmond de Belamy have fetched high prices as everyone is caught up in the AI-art craze.

Where we’re going

Human art will be enhanced with tech tools and independently generated AI art will become indistinctive from human works – at which point we may need to re-address what it means to be creatively cognizant.

How to think about it

Artists feel their talents are being trivialized and will only get through this robot Renaissance if they reconcile themselves to the idea that AI tools are here to help. Consider how we can merge the free associative and lateral thinking of humans with incredibly intelligent AI to enhance creativity rather than replace it.
