human photos of boris mikhail the 80 year old artist documents life on the streets . first though it's goodbye rembrandt hello robots well not exactly but more and more artists are getting artificial intelligence to do their work for them or at least testing what ai is capable of so when will the machines just take over and when they can eventually produce music or movies all by themselves will it really be art here's a quick look at some of ai's artistic accomplishments so far. contacts myself a blood robot recently seen at the vet is the enemy and controlled by intelligence software not an isolated case robots an ai have long figured on the art scene artificial and artistic intelligence seem to work well together some examples.

the french collective obvious uses ai to create his paintings. but with thousands of portraits from the 18th century the system recognizes passions and produces images in the respective styles this is how the fictitious family bellamy was created. not convincing on the contrary the ai painting at montebello i mean was also in the christie's last autumn for around 385000. design filipe start from france presented the chair ai in milan. it was developed with the help of artificial intelligence. humans create division the software grinds out hundreds of designs even the final product a only as an extension of the imagination.

film science fiction starring david hasselhoff the story all generated by a computer program by hundreds of screenplays. it's ok but. the dialogue and content may not always make sense you know in shakespeare is more than just infinite monkeys typing of course. but then people don't always create masterpieces either. music the ai system or eventually stop it going on and end this mess so my stream on you tube the ai plays around the clock. human musicians can't do that but what really is the point. what is the point i've got to double your culture's got rock spirit here to help us
11:48 pm
figure that out hey scott you know i actually interviewed david hasselhoff about this ai generated movie script and i have to say i'm still not sure if i talked to the real david hasselhoff or resist the robot what does that mean i don't know i mean i always had this i always suspected that they watch was created by a higher intelligence so maybe that's a ok so now we just saw some examples of artists who have used ai as a tool to help them create but can an algorithm can a machine be creative in and of itself i guess that's the core of this this whole topic i mean that was the the core of the debate today at the global media forum we had a panel specifically looking at ai and creativity and. invited sort of whole range of people including the indian multimedia k.-k. and he looks at ai just as another tool like like a paintbrush and you use it the computer programs are like this which is very

impressive but he's always right of us always in control he's always the one with the vision it's always clearly his are that he's creating but we also talk to serve tech gurus ethiopian ai pioneer bethlem dessie who is really a genius she's been programming since she was 9 years old and she's really trying to push the whole tech of ai for a. make artificial intelligence close and post with human intelligence she was actually part of the team that created sophia which is the most advanced humanoid robot now kind of scary i will get back to sophia in a 2nd but before the panel we have a chance to talk to the author of holder full and who wrote a book about the creative power of machines and we asked him is a threat to creativity let's hear what he had to say. machines are able to create incredible pieces of art and culture and they can paint like grammar and they can make music like bach or for example but all these pieces of culture are actually
11:50 pm
copies of human creativity it's not machine craving creativity on itself so i don't think that at the moment there is a threat coming from machines but actually i think there is a threat coming from humans thinking that machine creations are actually creative and actually need to be treated as human creative pieces of art for example. yeah i mean i think what he said is sort of the key. you know these computers might make stuff that looks like our smells like our but if there's if there's no subjective mind behind if there's no you know human or intelligence behind it making the subjective decisions that creates the arc can we actually even call it our i don't know i was hoping you were going to answer that i mean what i find fascinating about this whole topic is it really makes us. wonder what is creativity what is it that makes us as human special or maybe doesn't yeah i mean that's sort of the core
11:51 pm
i mean that's the one thing that humans can do that no other life form can do is right is create create art but if you can take like a bunch of metal and wires and it produces something that looks just like our what where does that leave us and i was thinking about this because that robot that dessie helped create sophia she was at the global media forum as well we got a chance to interview her of course 1st that he brought out there have been booted up. but then we did have a chance to interviewer and we asked her if she was creative she had a chance to write a novel what kind of novel which right and maybe listen to what she had to say. it would definitely be science fiction i would like to write a thrilling adventure about humans and robots working together to survive in the 1st mars colony. oh my gosh i don't want to be stuck on mars with that scott please don't tell me so impressive in a way this impressive in the press but you have to notice this is actually it's
11:52 pm
a bit of a fake we had to submit the questions to sophia's team before hand they program answers for so it looks like a human she sounds like a human but there's no real human intelligence behind it so at the moment at least it looks like artists jobs are safe and maybe even our jobs are safe for the moment i'm not even sure that you aren't a robot but thank you anyway for him to talk with us and he found a bit i mean sure. it's got rocks for there now. moving back to real humans few photographers are as raw or as brutally honest in their work as bores me off and the hero subject include homeless men displaying their wounds prostitutes exposing themselves children sniffing glue for most of his life the ukrainian artist faced soviet censorship the k.g.b. even punished him for taking nude photos of his own wife in recent decades there. under verted gaze has made him one of the biggest names in contemporary photography

most vulnerable he doesn't think of himself as a do gooder his older works examine the heroes of socialism and poke fun at them all his work in photography has included some form of criticism of the world's ruling classes he sees what others all too often refuse to see but he forces us to look that is the essence modest means high looks aren't. if photographer bores me i was critical of the ruling class as i wonder what he'd say about these people on monday night hundreds of guests attended an 18th century costume party palace outside paris the theme of the night was one that the queen who watched her head in the french revolution and for 500 euros a piece guests could attend a private concert in the queen's room i'll leave you now with a few impressions from the outside thanks for watching.
