Google engineers are trying to see if Artificial Intelligence can generate works of art, thus morphing into Artificial Creativity. The company’s Project Magenta is working on algorithms that would allow computers to compose music. See Can machines make music? Google tests creative boundaries of AI. – CSMonitor.com.
The first composition has been released. It consists of only four notes. (The drums are human additions.) Hear it after the jump.
Then discuss: Do you think machines with Artificial Intelligence will be able to create art? What’s the difference between the Artificial Intelligence of a machine and the Actual Intelligence of a human being? What else is needed to create a work of art besides “intelligence”? Can machines ever have those things?
