Should Art Classes Include AI Art?
During the past few years, the discussion of artificial intelligence (AI) and art has been a hot topic. While some may see AI-generated artwork as groundbreaking, others are concerned that it could be used to subvert the artistic community. In fact, some criticize the fact that AI-generated images have been circulated on the internet, and argue that they should be worth less. Other groups, however, are defenders of AI-generated art.
One of the first pieces to be widely covered and sold was the Portrait of Edmond de Belamy, which was created by Paris-based art collective Obvious. The work sold for $432,500 at the Christie’s Auction House. The image, which features the artist in front of a bare background, was created with software.
Other pieces have been created with AI as well, including the Playform, which uses tiny points of light to represent data. The software was developed by Simon Colton of Imperial College, London. Users have reported that the software has signature colors and gestures.
Another art project was created using a deep learning algorithm called DALL-E 2 that uses artificial intelligence to transform text into visual art. This program can return images with a humanlike vision, and it can also generate artwork that expresses complex emotions.
Deep learning algorithms use sophisticated computations to impersonate the structure of the human brain. In order to improve, these algorithms need to gather more data. They can then use this data to understand and improve their models. These algorithms can also recognize faces and dog breeds.
These algorithms have been trained by using tens of thousands of original artworks created by humans. In addition, the algorithms are trained by users’ approval. This is how AI-generated artwork can become better. However, these biases are still present.
There are also concerns about the fact that art created by AI can be viewed as plagiarism. This is because a program could replicate a part of an image, and claim it as their own. This could be considered plagiarism if the creator does not own the copyright to the image. However, if the creator of the art did create it, it is still a valid work of art.
Another program called DALLE uses artificial intelligence to create “superficial art.” It can create “superficial” artwork that is useful for creating art that conveys complex emotions. However, it lacks the capacity to understand the human psyche and to feel emotions.
In addition, AI-generated artwork has been used to drum up interest in the novelty-obsessed art market. For instance, in June, a cover for Cosmopolitan magazine was created using AI-generated art.
