Last year when I resigned my stable job to focus in finishing my PhD about Artificial Intelligence I was looked with an staring glance by my coworkers who thought I was trying to accomplish something impossible… It’s no wonder that some people can’t imagine that synthetic creative thinking might be achieved with the current developments in Cognitive Computing. As […]Read More My PhD in Artificial Intelligence is on the right track!
From one point of view, for a work of art to be considered Algorithmic Art its creation must include a process based on an algorithm devised by the artist. Here, an algorithm is simply a detailed recipe for the design and possibly execution of an artwork, which may include computer code, functions, expressions, or other […]Read More Algorithmic Art is a recipe for Creativity.
The early 1960s brought about a significant shift in western art, largely in reaction to the critical and popular success of the highly personal and expressive painterly gestures of Abstract Expressionism. Minimalist artists, for example, produced pared-down three-dimensional objects that have no resemblance to any real objects. Heavily influenced by the Dutch De Stijl group, the Russian Constructivists and […]Read More The minimum of operating means.
Artist Sol LeWitt began making his artwork series called “Wall Drawings” in 1968, which eventually and until his death, would use instructions (algorithms) for the design of such creations and teams of assistants for the execution of these pieces. This wall drawings, executed on-site, generally exist for the duration of an exhibition; they are then […]Read More Le Witt’s immortal paintings.
Intelligent Artifacts may be found in literature since Greek mythology but only after World War II, when modern computers became available, it has become possible to create programs that perform difficult intellectual tasks. Artificial Intelligence is over half a century old and for a very long time it was dominated by rule-based systems, a field […]Read More Artificial Intelligence Tribalism.
The intellectual roots of AI, and the concept of intelligent machines, may be found in Greek mythology. Intelligent artifacts appear in literature since then, with real (and fraudulent) mechanical devices actually demonstrated to behave with some degree of intelligence. After modern computers became available, following World War II, it has become possible to create programs […]Read More Timeline of Artificial Intelligence.
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 […]Read More Fearless Creative Machines.
