Will Artificial Intelligence Replace Artists?
Artificial Intelligence in art? How does it work? Is it real art or not? Immerse yourself in an intriguing discussion about how Artificial Intelligence and art blend, and the pros and cons of artworks made by AI.
The theme of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in daily life used to be only in science fiction. We know it through many utopian and dystopian novels and films, such as those from Aldous Huxley, Stanislaw Lem, or Stanley Kubrick. But the line has blurred as the integration of AI in what used to be done by human becomes prominent. A new height has been reached as what was thought to be done entirely by the human hand can be now replicated by a machine.
In 2018, the Portrait of Edmond Belamy was sold for $432,500 at Christie’s in New York. That was the first work of art made entirely by the Artificial Intelligence (AI) system Generative Adversarial Network. Since the initial introduction of AI in art, a surge of AI and Machine Learning has infiltrated the art world until now, prompting sparkling discussions about whether the use of AI in art is deemed legitimate.
In this blog post, we would like to discuss the “for” and “against” argument of AI in Art, and we will finalize by adding our personal statement.
The argument for AI in art
Arthur Miller, the author of optimistically declared that while we can only build a machine that is programmed by our way of thinking, eventually the machine will learn itself through and develop its own intelligence that surpasses human intervention and open a new path towards scientific and artistic achievement.
The argument against AI in art
Gabriel, the author of the 2018 book The Meaning of Thought, called it a mistake to even consider AI in art an art, as he explained the work of art is the results of autonomous individuals alone, and art is radically unique in its “no-sense” and non-repeatable way.
Victory Art’s remarks
In Victory Art, we encourage artists to be creative in many ways, regardless of whether it is hand-made or artificial. Even though AI in art is on the rise, we believe such a technological revolution will even encourage artists with traditional preferences to evolve in order to compete with AI art, prompting a vibrant and never-ending competition that promotes and heightened the standard of beauty.
