Making art with AI?
thank you for opening this discussion! I'm glad to find here open minds.
About the question "What is art": since the beginning of XX it became more than just a cultural element being measured by old art school metrics. Dadaists and other art avant-gardists changed the whole conception of art. They questioned the traditions and believed art is an open platform where everybody can contribute.
So I suppose, nowadays, art is rather a personal definition (which makes it hard for art market to evolve, hehe). Old definitions don't work anymore.
With AI we get something fully new in the field of creativity. AI is indeed trained on vast of art data (but our whole art history is "trained" as well).
If you are interested on this topic, we can discuss about it more - and I can write more to DDI about it (since ART and AI is an astonishing combination and have to be examined).
