Take for instance, Bengaluru-based artist Raghava K K, who is in the US at the moment, collaborating with painting robots, scientists and technologists to create an artwork, six years in the making. Just this week, Terrain.art unveiled India's first artificial intelligence non-fungible token (NFT) art exhibition'Intertwined Intelligences', which explores the relationship between artificial intelligence (AI) and human creativity. The show, which features international AI artists, is curated by Bengaluru-based Harshit Agrawal who shot to fame with his work'The Anatomy of Dr Algorithm', where he fed images of surgeries into an algorithm and used AI to create Rembrandt-inspired art based on the images of everything from organs to fibroids. What AI does is that it uses algorithms to predict behaviour through patterns. So the more patterns give a machine for a painting, the greater precision with which the requests are processed to get a final outcome.

A team of scientists from Bengaluru's Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research (JNCASR) has developed a device that can emulate the cognitive actions of a human brain, and is more efficient than conventional techniques. The new AI technology enhances computational speed and power consumption efficiency. The team fabricated an artificial synaptic network (ASN), resembling the biological neural network, through a simple self-forming method. Scientists said that the device structure is formed by itself while heating. While aiming to develop a synaptic device for neuromorphic applications, the team also explored a material system that mimicked neuronal bodies and axonal network connectivity, similar to that in the biological system.
