Machine Learning as Art Practice.

Recently I wrote about Generative Adversarial Networks, a revolutionary class of AI algorithms used in unsupervised Machine Learning, and their importat relation with the research in Computational Creativity. This type of framework for the design of Artificial Intelligences was invented by Ian Goodfellow in 2014. The system consist of one network that generates new data after learning from a training […]

The machine will have the idea…

Computational Creativity is a new academic field devoted to the study and modeling of computational processes that achieve creative tasks. Its main duties are the study of computational models of (human) creativity, designing artificially creative systems, and also to deploy computational systems for supporting creativity. Understanding brain processes behind creativity and modeling them using computational means […]

Geometry paints the painting itself.

Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky is depicted as the main pioneer and most influential teacher in the geometric abstraction movement. Kasimir Malevich and Piet Mondrian are also among its promoters although we can appreciate the use of geometry as an artistic and decorative expression since ancient cultures. Islamic art, for example, in its prohibition of depicting religious figures is a […]

Dimensions of Creativity.

“Creativity is a puzzle, a paradox, some say a mystery. Inventors, scientists, and artists rarely know how their ideas arise. They mention intuition, but cannot say how it works. Most psychologists cannot tell us much about it either. What’s more, many people assume that there will never be a scientific theory of creativity–for how could […]

Fearless Creative Machines.

As we all know fear is innovation´s worst enemy because it freezes our creativity which flows from a fearless sense of combinatorial job which mixes ideas, concepts, colors, forms, and theories.  Mark Rolston -cofounder and chief creative officer of argodesign– thinks that the actual advances in Artificial Intelligence will mark the beginning of a new […]

Synthetic creative thinking.

The Bussiness Dictionary defines “creative thinking” as a way of looking at problems or situations from a fresh perspective that suggests unorthodox solutions. Many defend that this domain is exclusive for humans, specially with he increasing fear of automated machines taking over many jobs, and that might be why many people look at me with […]
