For the last couple of years, I have been doing a master’s degree in philosophy and science for which I have carried out a final thesis (based on a theoretical-practical investigation) about the relationship of Art and Machine Learning.
Since the human mind and therefore our artistic processes are intrinsic parts of biological matter, my hypothesis is that a Neuroscience inspired approach to Artificial Intelligence may be a practical way to build synthetic minds and creative machines.
In order to find out the potential of Machine Learning algorithms I have deployed an Intelligent Agent (IA) under the name of HOLOBIONTia which is capable of “understanding” abstract art and also able not to only “imagine”, but to make new paintings. The findings -accessible now to the public through an exhibition in a Virtual Reality art gallery shared below- suggest that while disruptive technoscientific innovations through automation may be threatening to the continuity of some creative activities traditionally done by humans, they may also serve as a trampoline to imagine new forms of representation of our world through computer science.
In conclusion, by experimenting with these emerging technologies artists and designers can explore their cultural, political and aesthetic possibilities. Hope you find this research interesting…
