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 […]

Hohkep: running and training in nature.

In 2015 researchers in Stanford University showed that Trail Running can literally change your brain for good. The study found that participants who exercised in nature not only reported a decrease in rumination (that relentless cycle of negative thoughts and anxiousness that increases the risk of depression), but fMRI scans also indicated a decrease in neural […]

Flowing to a post-capitalist world…

According to british writer Paul Mason over the past two centuries capitalism has undergone continual changes but now thanks to information technology it has reached its limits and is changing into something wholly new. Already in 1993, Peter Drucker outlined a similar evolution in his book “Post-Capitalist Society”. In this new world, which would be […]

“Money is the barometer of a society’s virtue. When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion–when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing–when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors–when you […]

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 […]

Creative State of Mind.

The emergent field of Neuroscience and Creativity studies has experienced a great boom in recent years. For many people -influenced by the perspectives of 19th century Romanticism– creativity remains an unattainable mystery for science (Boden, 2013). However, currently the focus of cognitive neuroscience has renewed the study of creative processes and our ability to realize novel […]
