Codepunk 044: Artificial Intelligence and the Meaning of Art
Artificial intelligence algorithms have been making the news recently when it comes to the production of art--whether paintings, fiction, or the photography of human beings that don't actually exist. With the humanities as possibly the last bastion of non-automated, human-centered exploration, do these encroachments portend an end to human-dominated creativity, or are we just confusing what the word "art" means?
In this episode, we take a look at recent news about artificial intelligence in the realm of art, and discuss what art actually means, and whether or not machines are truly capable of it.
