Computers that learn can help artists and makers take their crafts to the next level.
From drum machines to digital cameras, technology has a history of revolutionizing the ways artists create. Now, unlikely new tools from the world of tech are altering everything from music to art to filmmaking.
According to Nidhi Chappell, director of Machine Learning at Intel, artificial intelligence (AI) is branch of computer science where machines can sense, learn, reason, act and adapt to the real world, amplifying human capabilities, automating tedious or dangerous tasks, and solving some of society’s most challenging societal problems.
Similarly, she said, machine learning (ML) is a subset of AI where computers have the ability to accumulate and process huge amounts of data that enables them create mathematical algorithms. This allows computers to act or “think” without being explicitly directed to perform specific functions.
Both AI and ML technologies have been used for decades in fields such as education, financeand medicine, but as Shun Matsuzaka, Founder of McCann Millennials, put it, “It is generally believed that artificial intelligence can’t ‘create’ or be effective in the creative field.”
Today, Matsuzaka and other innovators across the globe are using AI and ML tech as tools for writing music, painting pictures and much more.
“Technically, I see a wide open field for AI-enabled artistic tools. Music tools. Animation tools. Sculpture tools. Writing tools,” said Karl Stiefvater, Founder of Pikazo, an app that uses an artificial neural network to create art. “The space is very exciting.”
