Are you ready to compete with A.I?
Now, the future of traveling to Mars is no surprise. Auto pilot driving cars are running on the roads with your manual vehicle, and individuals can even travel to space. Artificial intelligence-based computer technology has advanced dramatically and is now threatening human lives and job positions.
Artificial intelligence is intelligence demonstrated by machines, as opposed to natural intelligence displayed by humans. Ai-Da is a humanoid robot credited with being the world's first ultra-realistic robot artist. Completed in 2019, Ai-Da is an artificial intelligence robot that makes drawings, painting, and sculptures. She is named after Ada Lovelace.
Aida, an artificial intelligence artist, looks like a mid-level painter. Aida made her debut as a painter in the UK in 2019. Aida's eyes observe objects with a camera, built-in computer software envisions the work, and the robot's hands are bionically designed to hold a brush and draw a picture. It is characterized by being able to draw people or objects as they appear. The process calculates the path according to the algorithm and then interprets the coordinates to create the work. Only Aida knows what kind of picture she is drawing. . Additionally, Aida can not only draw what it looks like, but also answer simple questions from customers.
Aida's first exhibition under the theme of 'Unsecured Future' earned more than $1 million (about KRW 1.1 billion) in auction revenue last year, and after a successful conclusion, the second exhibition was held at the Design Museum in London, England, in May of this year. opened.
In the field of art and all fields, we will have to find a way to survive the competition with artificial intelligence. Above all, even in art, where intuition and creativity are the basics, it is surprising that artificial intelligence has learned its methods and algorithms and continues to develop. Then, how can we distinguish between a painting drawn by an artist and a painting drawn by artificial intelligence? When painter's implement a picture through digital art or photography, what will create the boundary between artworks and a simple copied image? It shows that it is time for painters to look back on their own with what art is.
As a painter, when I research about the artificial intelligence, I first see their works. And afterwards, I response immediately "Wow! It's well-drawn. I have a feeling that Ai drew similarly like a human". However, I realized at the same time that it is useless evaluate with only compliments.
If there is no emotion conveyed through the picture, it is not real artworks. Suppose you do not feel any feelings such as loneliness, joy, happiness, sadness, or depression through a painting. In that case, it will be treated as if it were drawn by a machine, no matter how much a human drawing is. Above all, you have set a more dangerous path if you have copied someone's technique and style without your personality. A painting should reveal the artist's personality and unique attributes, just like a digitally drawn or manual sign. So it may be that I am insisting on my own technique and my own feeling. If the artist's personality, the weight of life, and the emotions he wants to convey are not revealed through the work, the boundaries between what is an artificial work and what is a human work will be blurred. In the future, artificial intelligence will continue to develop further. Perhaps someday, it will surpass human skill and art style. When faced with such a reality, I wish I could say that what humans draw is more comforting.
For this reason, I am very happy when the exhibition is over, and the curators and visitors say, "Anna, your paintings are very different!". "It's different," that is, it's not that You're not good at drawing or good at drawing, but that's what you drew exactly. I love that word. That's the best compliment.
I wish my drawing were like my autograph or signature. I hope that works like my alter ego can convey the feeling I want to share. That is the ultimate direction in which I work.
No matter how advanced artificial intelligence is, it will not keep up with the personality that is recorded moment by moment in life. Just like the crows from "borrows plum" in Aesop's fables can be packed and fancy, but they do not have the black properties of a crow when painters realize their actual unique properties, they will be able to find a key that can surpass artificial intelligence.
