Machine Learning and Abstract Art: a Systems Neuroscience approach to Artificial Creativity.

Today I would like to share my master’s 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, a Neuroscience inspired approach to Artificial Intelligence may be a practical way to build synthetic minds and […]

Machines can be said to have beliefs.

“Machines as simple as thermostats can be said to have beliefs, and having beliefs seems to be a characteristic of most machines capable of problem solving performance. However, the machines mankind has so far found it useful to construct rarely have beliefs about beliefs, although such beliefs will be needed by computer programs that reason […]

Computational Aesthetics: the beholder needs eyes?

Computational aesthetics is a subfield of Artificial Intelligence, concerned with the computational assessment of beauty in domains of human creative expression  which bridges science and art. As an emerging and new interdisciplinary field, the seed of today’s Computational Aesthetics can be traced as far back as 1928, when American mathematician George David Birkhoff proposed the […]

My PhD in Artificial Intelligence is on the right track!

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 […]

The minimum of operating means.

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 […]

Le Witt’s immortal paintings.

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 […]

Artificial Intelligence Tribalism.

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 […]

Timeline of Artificial Intelligence.

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 […]
