in recent years, Artificial Intelligence has been challenging the creation of art that was considered a unique area of humanity.
although artificial intelligence is rapidly reshaping the industrial ecosystem, art that requires high thinking and creativity is a human privilege and the last stop. however, recent creations embodied by artificial intelligence, from art, music, literature, and articles, are more than just mosaics.
as a result, some people have raised the crisis theory that artificial intelligence can now replace almost all human work. now, however, we need to think about whether even art cannot be free from artificial intelligence, or whether it has become a wing to the freedom of art.
expands creative systems
artificial intelligence is already a promising industry in music.
In fact, electronic instruments, electronic equipment, and songwriting software have continued to evolve since 1957, when “illiac” in the United States introduced a computer program of classical music. This is why the RNN Neural Network was recently designed to create new sounds, and the soil that combined them to produce music like no other in the world was created.
Typically, Google’s ‘Magenta’ creative ai project, Amazon’s DeepComposer, and Open AI Jukebox build a large database and generate music based on it. AIVA, launched by Aybar Technologies, is the first to register its name with the Composers Association and learn how classical music is composed and is used for various sound compositions.
the art sector has also shocked the art world, with artificial intelligence paintings winning high prices in the global auction market.
At the time, Richard Lloyd, of Christie’s Auctions, said, “We can’t foresee what changes AI will make in the future, but what is clear is one of the many technologies that will shock the art market.” As he says, AI stands out for its spread to a new genre called AI art.
Big tech companies mainly develop programs, work on projects where startups and artists collaborate, and exhibitions stand out. Google developed Deep Dream, which depicts the firestorm of famous artists, and ING and MS have released a flower-like creation of Rembrandt through a project called The Next Rembrandt.
TO DATE, ARTISTS WHO ARE PRIMARILY INTERESTED IN “AI ART” HAVE BEEN WORKING ON ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE PROGRAMS AS TOOLS TO EXPAND THE HORIZONS OF THE ART WORLD.
ai plays not only music and art, but also in literature and news articles, and shows off its so-called “handwriting.”
‘0’ of creation, don’t be stingy with technology
the ancient Greek philosophers, who follow the origins of art, defined the essence of art as ‘imitation’. this proposition is a motif that has led to art for a very long time. and along the way, creative techniques and methods have broadened the spectrum of art. where did the artists’ concerns come to be in this process?
< “art has been contemplating the use of tools for a long time before we encountered the creative activities of robots> says hankyoreh shimbun, a senior journalist at hankyoreh newspaper in gubon-kwon. a tool is a different name for a skill.
looking back on the “zero” in a field, the emergence of new technologies has always shocked society, but people soon realize how to coexist with machines.
so is the shock of the most groundbreaking tool, artificial intelligence, which has recently emerged. the process of creating newness from the myriad objects of nature, i.e. the fierce boundary fight of human reason and mental activity, resembles the deep learning algorithms of artificial intelligence. that’s why this technology, which adds to the creation, makes human-algorithmic collaboration and creative collaboration become a genre.
since the emergence of ai, there has been a constantly raised topic, and the question of “can ai replace humans” actually implies “competition.” in particular, the machine’s performance of art creation, which is considered to be the product of human unique private acts, presupposes “fierce competition.” however, since ‘0’, we have built up science and technology, and we have not always found a wise balance. so now, we have to ask questions and think fiercely. competitive, not the win-win way.
