Art has evolved in tandem with developments in technology. With the emergence of Artificial Intelligence, however, we have computers creating art in a way that could minimize, or even eliminate, human input. Is the result actually art? Who is the artist? Who owns the work, particularly if it reflects other art or is the result of an algorithm?
This session will explore these issues largely from the perspective of three Education City artists, each of whom has been at the forefront of their field with one of them, a computer engineer by training, using AI to create new works. The legal implications of their work and analysis will also be addressed.
