Will artificial intelligence, or AI, revolutionise art?

commented by Shu Lea Cheang

Above (Issue I/2019)


And it’s a creeping evolution: First the clever light switches, then the smart home. That’s why AI in our everyday lives has ramifications, not just AI in art. I’d like to work with AI in my own practice because I hack into all kinds of new technological developments. I am not afraid of technological progress. The question is only who uses [that progress] and what they use it for.
