also on the show the uncensored and very human photos of boris mikhail the eighty 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. contact myself a blood robot recently seen at the bed 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 seems to work well together some examples it's . not the

french collective obvious uses ai to create his paintings. fit with thousands of portraits from the eighteenth century the system recognizes passions and produces images in the respective style this is how the fictitious family bellamy was created. not convincing on the contrary the ai painting at montebello me was optioned the christie's last autumn for around three hundred eighty five thousand euros. design phillipe stopped from france presented the chair ai in milan. it was developed with the help of the us official intelligence. humans create the vision the software grinds out hundreds of designs even the final product a only as an extension of the imagination.

you through all of the 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 shakespeare is more than just infinite monkeys typing of course. i. but then people don't always create masterpieces either. music the ai system or eventually stop it going on an endless metal live stream on you tube the ai plays around the clock. humanisation is can't do that but what really is the point.
1:48 am
what is the point i've got to double your culture's got rock spirit here to help us figure that out hey scott you know i actually interviewed david about this ai generated movie script and i have to say i'm still not sure if i talked to the real david hasselhoff for the robot what does that mean i don't know i mean i always have this always suspected that they watch was created by a higher intelligence so maybe that it's 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 us to a whole range of people including the indian multimedia k.k. and he looks at ai just as another tool like like a paint brush and use it the computer programs are yes 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 art that he's creating but we also talk to tech gurus ethiopian ai pioneer bethlem deathy who really a genius she's been programming since she was nine years old and she's really trying to push the whole tech of ai forward to 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 this theory will get back to sophia in a second but before the panel we had 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 here 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
1:50 am
make music like oil for example but all these pieces of culture are actually 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 it smells like our but if there's if there's no subjective mind behind it there's no you know human intelligence behind it making the subjective decisions that creates the art can we actually even call it art i don't know i was hoping you were going to answer that i mean what i find fascinating about this whole topic is. there 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 i
1:51 am
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 first that we brought out what 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 first mars colony. oh my gosh i don't want to be stuck on mars with that scott please don't tell me you're still impressive in a way this impressive in the press but you have to notice this is actually it's
1:52 am
a bit of a fake you have to submit the questions to sophia's team before hand the 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. i have to talk with and if i'm david i mean sure . i've 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 antihero subjects include homeless men displaying their wombs 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 though me how loves under verted games has made him one of the biggest names in

health and other reasons. but the main reason was that you have to defend your work you have to try to make something out of it a book or a project. at the time it was impossible in your crane to do anything at all except collect the pictures. now me shylock no longer has to fight for recognition following exhibitions in new york london and vienna now berlin is often on home for twenty years is finally doing the honors. as a script. internationally there are very few people who use a camera so powerfully in an effort to influence the society. and then all at once in the ninety nine days off appear the only one to emerge in the post soviet environment and his distinct. of approach is to look at social injustice and at the physical and really think about it. even if meek i love has an eye for the
