1st 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 vet 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 seem to work well together some example. oh it's the french collective obvious uses ai to create his paintings. bed with thousands of portraits from the 18th 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 auction at christie's last autumn for around 385000 euros. designed philippe starck from france presented the chair ai in milan. it was developed with the help of artificial intelligence. humans create the vision the software grinds out hundreds of designs even the final product a only as an extension of the imagination. of the film science fiction starring david hasselhoff the story all generated by a computer program by hundreds of screenplays. the dialogue and

content may not always make sense shakespeare is more than just infinite monkeys typing of course. but then people don't always create masterpieces either. music the ai system or eventually stop it going on and end this mess so my stream on you tube the ai plays around the clock. human musicians count do that but what really is the point. 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 hasselhoff about this ai generated movie script and i have to say i'm still not sure if i talked to
10:48 am
the real david hasselhoff or resist the robot what does that mean i don't know i mean i always had this i always suspected that baywatch was created by a higher intelligence so maybe that's a 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 sort of whole range of people including the indian multimedia k.-k. and he looks at ai just as another tool like like a paintbrush and use it to peer programs are words like this 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 are that he's creating but we also talk to tech
10:49 am
gurus ethiopian ai pioneer bethlem dessie who is really a genius she's been programming since she was 9 years old and she's really trying to push the whole pack of ai forward. make artificial intelligence close and close 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 2nd but before the panel we have 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 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
10:50 am
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 art that smells like 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 it really makes us. wonder 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 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
10:51 am
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 course 1st that we brought out in. 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 would she write 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 1st mars colony. oh my gosh i don't want to be stuck on cars with that scott please don't tell me. impressive in a way this impressive in the press but you have to notice this is actually it's 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
10:52 am
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 us and i'm david i mean sure . it's 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 subject include homeless men displaying their wounds 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 know. under verted gaze has made him one of the biggest names in contemporary photography we met up with him here in her early in. his career but it's me hi love has focused on people living at the edges of society is well known series case history

all except collect the pictures that minute sure warn you. now me china is no longer has to fight for recognition. following exhibitions in new york london and vienna now berlin has often on home for 20 years is finally doing the honors. as a skipping about sanaa is in 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 $99.00 days off appear the only one to emerge in the post soviet environment and his distinctive approach is to look at social injustice and at the physical and really think about it. even if me kind of has an eye for the weakest and most vulnerable he doesn't think of himself as a do gooder his older works examine the heroes of socialism and poke fun at them

all his work in photography has included some form of criticism of the world's ruling classes he sees what others all too often refuse to see but he forces us to look that is the essence but it's me i love art. if photographer bores me i was critical of the ruling class as i wonder what he'd say about these people. on monday night hundreds of guests attended an 18th century costume party at the palace outside paris the theme of the night was. a queen who lost her head in the french revolution and for 500 euros apiece gusts could attend a private concert in the queen's room i'll leave you now with a few impressions from the outside thanks for watching.
