Can machines be more creative than humans?

#artificialintelligence

Mario Klingemann, a German artist who uses AI in his work, has radical views on creativity. "Humans are not original," he says. "We only reinvent, make connections between things we have seen." While humans can only build on what we have learned and what others have done before us, "machines can create from scratch". Setting aside whether or not human creativity is limited and indeed what precisely creativity is, it's certainly true that artificial neural networks being developed today work out the rules as they go along, rather than being taught.


Can machines be creative? Meet the Google coders teaching them to make art

#artificialintelligence

Can a machine be creative? Google thinks so, and it has an entire team dedicated to teaching machines how to view the world a little more like us emotional humans. Think about computers as if they were children and it's simple to understand how coders can teach them to learn. Artificial intelligence is, at the beginning, very basic and simple. Human moderators instruct computers, showing them how to think and thus teach themselves.

Become one with art at Tokyo's psychedelic digital museum

Japan's TeamLab has created some of the most trippy, interactive and Instagram-able digital art installations ever. It's only fitting, then, that the group is getting its own digital museum in Tokyo, thanks to developer Mori and Epson. The Mori Building Digital Art Museum has 100,000 square feet of exhibition space, with around 50 installations that generate imagery thanks to 520 computers, 470 projectors and numerous motion sensors. You can imagine the electricity it takes to power the exhibition, so admission is pretty steep compared to regular museums at 3,200 yen ($30). Every floor and wall is covered by light, and the images react to the presence of the attendees.
