An insurgency of digital art, whether musical or visual or both, invades traditional art museums and your phone, too.

It wouldn’t be surprising to see tech-related … [Read more...] about Mona Lisa Overdrive: Art Collides With Digital Technology
The gigantic art print is of a giant, glowing skull. Set against a drab and blurry background, the macabre icon reflects hues of ruby, electric blue, and charcoal. Depending on your interpretation, it could be burning, or perhaps backlit by some flame. The result is an artistic mash-up that seems at once neoclassical–but also abstract and surrealist. Or maybe it’s just a fiery Terminator head. After all, the piece, entitled Faceless Portrait #5, was made by artificially intelligence. It’s part of a series entitled Faceless Portraits Transcending Time on display at HG Contemporary in New York. So what does a machine know about mortality? That depends largely on how it’s programmed. The technical artist behind the effort is a neural network dubbed AICAN, short for Artificial Intelligence Creative Adversarial Network. It lives at the Art and AI Lab at Rutgers, where computer scientist Ahmed Elgammal has steadily fed it over 100,000 images spanning five … [Read more...] about These eerie portraits were painted by a very disturbed AI
Feb 18, 9:04 AM EST Newsletter Signup BusinessTechnologyWorldNationalMedia & CultureOpinionSportsLuxury Science By Lorraine Lorenzo 02/18/19 AT 6:50 AM The Elon Musk-backed Artificial Intelligence group, OpenAI, recently revealed that its AI software has the capacity to create predictive texts and even produce highly-convincing fake content by incorporating words and ideas from 8 million web pages fed into its system. The language model, called GPT-2 (a successor to GPT), was trained to predict the next words in 40GB of Internet text. Compared to the GPT model, the GPT-2 has more than 10X the parameters and trained to handle the same amount of data compared to its predecessor.According to a blog post from OpenAI posted on Feb. 14, the company has trained a large-scale unsupervised language model which generates coherent paragraphs of text."It achieves state-of-the-art performance on many language modeling benchmarks, and performs rudimentary … [Read more...] about Elon Musk-Backed AI Software Could Be Used To Spread Fake News
Munich-based artist Mario Klingemann has been making art using algorithms for 25 years, posting his experiments online and showing the final results in galleries. He’s a leading artist working with AI today–but next month, Klingemann’s groundbreaking work will breach the commercial fine art establishment when one of his pieces goes up for auction at Sotheby’s for an estimated $38,500 to $51,000. Sotheby’s interest in his work points to the increasing cultural relevance of artwork that uses algorithms–and this type of art’s viability in the mainstream art market. Memories of Passersby I is a computer system hidden inside of an antique-looking piece of furniture, which looks like a cross between a midcentury modern cabinet and an old-fashioned radio. The system is connected with wires to two large screens, which display human faces that the algorithm dreams up in real time on a constant loop. It’s almost entirely … [Read more...] about The future of AI art goes up for auction at Sotheby’s for $50,000
