My thoughts on Ai and Art, in conversation with a (virtual) Robot.
Hmm. Tricky. I feel both negative and positive about it. And honestly I was more thrown by the gynaecologist reference in a previous note than today’s AI chat. I think it’s both scary and exciting at the same time, but the AI responses felt shallow, generic and less meaningful than a human conversation. I wonder what perspective I would have, had I not known it was a conversation with AI... would I have found the responses more thought provoking and genuine?
I agree with Emily about both the AI chat and the gynecologist analogy. In terms of AI, I lean more neutral-negative than negative or violent opposition. Ultimately, the AI portion of the chat was (and I really dislike this word) boring, but that probably because I was imposing my prejudice that robots can’t have the same passion about why they create as humans. That drive to create is what connects us to other human artists.
