This is the perfect example of STEAM; the meeting of art and science. Teaching artificial intelligence (AI) and programming it to create shows the potential for machine learning. Making AI art, something that’s like what we recognise yet original, is the bridge between our understanding and that of computers.
AICAN is a program designed by Rutgers’ Art & AI Lab that’s basically an AI artist. After looking at nearly 500 years of art history, it learned the ins and outs of artistic aesthetic, and created some pieces of its own. Who knows, maybe AI art will be hanging in museums around the world one day.
