AI: Actual Intelligence vs. Artificial Intelligence, a Talk at Intersect Aspen

By now, we’ve all seen that AI can make beautiful art, but can it make great art? And what is great art anyway?

Josh Baer took on these questions and much more in his talk at Intersect Aspen art fair, “AI: Actually Intelligence versus Artificial Intelligence,” with panelists Alex Marshall of Christie’s and Sara Arison of the Arison Art Foundation. Watch as the trio cover everything from questions of originality in the Warhol copyright case to ways AI could level the playing field for lower-income artists.

They also wrestle with questions like, can AI produce art that reflects personal and historical hardship? And if most AI art programs today depend on scraping existing artworks created by humans, can it really look towards the future to create something new?
