“Arts-based research” means that the investigator uses his own artistic expression as means of enquiry (“artistic knowing”) or as an action-oriented research that aims a “change through art”. This type of exploration carried out by artists, designers, curators, architects, writers and musicians contributes new concepts, methods and models in order to produce new and original […]Read More Machine Learning Art as Scientific Research.
The production and use of technologies as an extension of the human condition has helped us not only to dominate our natural environment, but to know ourselves better as a biological species. Therefore research in Artificial Intelligence is a fertile field to generate new forms of scientific knowledge, as well as for the production of […]Read More Artificial Intelligence: Science or Alchemy?
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!
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 […]Read More Machine Learning as Art Practice.
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 […]Read More The machine will have the idea…
“You could argue that any group of people — like a company — is essentially a cybernetic collective of human people and machines. That’s what a company is. And then there are different levels of complexity in the way these companies are formed and then there is a collective AI in Google search, where we […]Read More A cybernetic collective of human people and machines.
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.
