So it’s technically not a true AI, but one can imagine that such a computer program becoming one. A computer was input a series of data; from scans, photos and etc.; of paintings by Rembrandt, that it analysed and created an entirely new painting based off Rembrandt’s work. It basically took all the proportions, style, colour and etc.; to produce a painting that has the aesthetics of a Rembrandt. The painting was 3D printed and data from height maps from paintings, created the oil painting look.
Although not exactly an AI, but I can’t help but feel unnerved, maybe it’s the whole AI taking over everything, “the art apocalypse is coming and robots are taking over”, sorry just had to say it . I totally understand that it hasn’t, and may never will in my life time, create something truly original, but you can’t help but feel that this is creepy. Of course people should embrace technology, but I don’t feel it should replace a human painting, simply because art shouldn’t be pixel perfect for every single stroke.
