Complex neural networks and AI toolsets are changing the way artists create their works. Whether we are discussing paintings or poetry, AI is just as smart when it comes to coming up with new pieces of art every single day. Take Google’s PoemPortraits for instance, the AI software takes a word from the user and generates a unique poem that has never been written before. It has been trained with over 20 million words of 19th century poetry.
And that is just the beginning! Very recently, an artist sold AI art titled “Portrait of Edmond Belamy”— for a whopping $432,500. Let us take a look at certain examples of AI disrupting the arts industry due to smart neural network training.
AIArtists.org – 25 Top AI Artists
If you are looking for AI software dedicated to the field of painting and artwork, AIArtists.org has a roundup of 25 AI artists and their catalogue. The website has historic works in AI art and has a collection of tools which AI artists can use in their paintings as well. Lauren by McCarthy for instance explores the impact of AI in our daily lives and how it would be different. The site is dedicated to showing the works of artists who are using AI to push the boundaries of creativity.
AI In Music
If AI can create artwork, why not music? AIVA is one example where AI has studied over 30,000 scores of history’s music and it can generate a personalized soundtrack to your life. One such example is Among the Stars composed alongside with John Beal. AIVA can be used by game developers, film makers or seasoned composers to assist in music composition for their projects. Currently AIVA is being used by Nvidia, Vodafone and several other popular companies.
While AI may not be directly involved in the arts sector right now but it is definitely pushing the boundaries of creativity with AI created music, artworks and poems. Previously we considered that these are the work of imagination but with advancement in technology and the training of AI with huge datasets of each of these types, AI is now able to compose unique pieces from each of these categories. There is a huge possibility that in the coming years, AI might replace artists altogether if it continues to get smarter at this current rate.
