Can a computer make a work of art? The Deep Dream program produces beautiful pictures in collaboration with human artists. Could AI ever produce art on its own? If it did, would you call it art? Or is art, by definition, something that only humans can produce?
Maybe a computer could make a work of art but could it make an intellectual shift in art to produce something completely new and unique, a new style, maybe a new form of art? Of course, not many humans can do that.
Will art, the ‘last bastion of humanity’, be taken over by computers? Or is there a domain that will always be the realm of humans only? If computers can be artists what will we do to feel human? What will we need to do to achieve greatness in 2050? What will be the point of having humans on Earth?
