From Tool to Autonomous Agent.
Investigating the Present and Future of AI as a Creative Tool for Artists.
Due to recent rapid advances of AI we are even closer to the holy grail of artificial general intelligence, or the point in time that machines start thinking for themselves. This paper delves into the past the present and the future of AI, by exploring the computational tools that artists are using along with the works that they are producing. I investigate the history of technology in the arts and finally try to pick a glimpse into the future of AI based on the trajectory of the technology and the work of computational artists.
