The Future of AI art: The Death of Creativity

As modern technology keeps making strides in the world, more and more modes of convenience have been created. With smart electronics taking up space in every household, we’re faced with an automatic solution to almost every problem. But one such area where that level of automation was not required, was creative entertainment. Giving rise to digital art created through Artificial Intelligence (AI), and what a bleak concept that is.

AI has become prevalent in our world to the point where it’s almost impossible to give up. We have become reliant on what it has to offer. Starting small with our smart electronics to its various uses in other fields like medicine, education, industry, etc. Within that same breath, there is also a fear of what too much reliance can do. Have we begun to count too much on these luxuries? And will they inevitably come back to haunt us in the future?

These are the heavy-hitting questions that people are facing.

With this new iteration of AI digital art. Which originally began as a trend and quickly spread like wildfire, left us wondering about the implications of it. Both good and bad. And whether or not this necessitates an intervention where we all take a step back and evaluate our priorities. And even more—when to give up.

What is AI art?

From innovating software development to providing every convenience, Artificial Intelligence has quickly set its deep hold on us. With the help of AI, we analyze heaps of data to create an intelligent system. With it having the capacity to receive information and come up with its own conclusions, i.e. behaving like a human.

As AI has been dominating various fields and industries around the world. One of the most significant developments in AI has been the emergence of generative adversarial networks (GANs). GANs are a type of machine learning algorithm capable of creating new data by training a larger dataset. GANs are used to generate new images, music, and other types of creative content by learning from previous works.

This is where Artificial intelligence (AI) art comes from, referring to any form of creative expression. Which includes paintings, music, poetry, and more, that have been generated or enhanced using artificial intelligence algorithms.

These recent advances in machine learning have developed the rise of AI art possible by enabling computers to learn from data and make predictions or decisions based on it. In training large datasets of existing works to learn patterns and features that are common in the arts. This knowledge is then used to generate new art that is inspired by the original works but has its own unique qualities.

Future of AI – Death of Creativity?

Is AI art the death of creativity and artists?

On the one hand, AI-generated art can be seen as a new form of art in itself, and as with any art form, it can inspire other artists to create their own unique works. AI-generated art can also serve as a starting point for collaboration between artists and machines, where artists can use the output of AI algorithms as a basis for their own creative interpretations.

But on the other hand, a craft that takes hours or even ages for a person to hone and perfect, just on the off chance that they can reach a level of artistry that is uniquely their own. To think that something as genuine as that can be offset by a ‘robot’ imitating that which has already been done by geniuses before and presenting it as a new art form. It seems almost insulting at best and downright alarming at worst.

In times like those, it is important to note that while AI can generate new content, it does not have the ability to replace the complex and nuanced decision-making process that human artists go through in their creative process. AI-generated art can be seen as a tool to help artists enhance and explore their creativity, but it cannot replace the human touch and emotions that drive artistic expression.

In conclusion, AI might not be the death of creativity for now, as it cannot replace the human imagination and creativity that drives art and innovation. But it can be a stepping stone for AI and creativity to work together to produce innovative and inspiring art and ideas that reflect the best of both worlds.
