Humanity. We think, we build, we create. Our own curiosity pushes us toward a defined culture. What we call a beautiful painting or a moving symphony, only exists because we declared it. This attachment to the arts is how we differentiate ourselves from other beings. What would happen if that defining characteristic was possessed by not just humans, but other, inorganic life?

Machines can think, and we have made them so. A system of neural networks is used to estimate functions that depend on a large number of unknown inputs. Neural networks are labeled the tripe counterpart to AI, Artificial Intelligence. This technology is the intellectual ability exhibited by machines. It has flexible rational agents that perceives its environment or situation, and takes actions that maximize its chance of success. Artificial Intelligence is programed to learn.

Programming is the

Today’s AIs and neural networks can not create art unless prompted to do so. However, once those rules and guidelines are laid out, they can make original work that man has never imagined.

Termed by developers and programmers as generative art processing, computers have the ability to conceive art. Generative art processing is defined as any art practice where the creator, developer, or programmer creates a process, such as a set of rules, computer program or machine. This then in turn is set in motion with some degree of autonomy contributing to or resulting in a complete work of art.

The process is a combination of art and programming. The cold, strict and logical process is subverted into creating illogical, unpredictable and expressive results. Yet, AIs and neural networks are still unable to comprehend the meaning or emotions associated with their work. The ability to feel genuine emotion for art still remains a characteristic that is distinctly
