How can artificial intelligence affect creativity?

Artificial intelligence and what they meanunder this phrase, it is found more and more often in our world. Many people think that this is a story about improving the quality of photos taken on a smartphone, or about protecting against hackers, or about solving other problems of a global and not very global scale. In fact, the concept is very arbitrary, and one can argue that such a phenomenon even exists. However, sometimes developers offer something that once again makes you speculate on this topic. Sometimes this is not even a separate product, but something wired into a separate solution. But is this what we need?

Robots can draw, but can they understand what a person painted?

What is artificial intelligence?

Artificial intelligence excited the minds of science fiction writerseven before the first computer appeared. Of course, it was very tempting to have a car that would understand you as a person and do everything for you. At the same time, it could simply be created and that's it. That is, it does not need to be hired, raised, educated, trained, and so on. Just collected it and she herself will somehow work.

Other than that, she will not get tired, will notdemand food, will not sleep, and will not be protected by law on all sides. Simply put, she will become an electronic slave and no one will object to this and seek the ethical side. Even this machine itself will only be glad of such a development.

The concept of intelligence has already been formulated a lottimes by almost everyone, starting from thinkers of the past. But the concept of artificial intelligence implies not just “the same thing, but artificial”, but in general something completely different.

In the early 1980s scientists with the surnames Barr and Feigenbaum, who worked closely with the theory of calculations, proposed a definition of artificial intelligence, which is still considered relevant:

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is an areacomputer science, which is engaged in the development of intelligent computer systems, that is, systems with the capabilities that we traditionally associate with the human mind - understanding the language, learning, the ability to reason, solve problems, etc.

From the definition it follows that AI is not the final product, but only the “field of computer science”. In addition, the main words in the definition are “learning” and “the ability to reason”.

Such features of AI are not able to replacehuman intelligence, as it implies much more, for example, the ability to express oneself, attachment, ethical principles and much more. But he can perfectly cope with the ability to reason.

Artificial intelligence in drawing

One example of this reasoning isbuilding drawings instead of man. There is a graphic editor that can draw a picture for a person. The editor was created by Google, and it is needed in order to turn rough sketches into cute sketchy images. That is, you can conditionally draw a bicycle, and the system will offer a more beautiful display of this bicycle.

So I painted ...

And so my drawing finalized the AI.

The problem is that options are offeredtoo much. Especially a lot of them are offered if the drawing is too sketchy. In this case, the scatter will be such that it may seem as if they are offered completely randomly. Nevertheless, if you draw something more or less similar, the recognition will be quite accurate.

It’s difficult to call such a way of drawing a verynecessary, but sometimes it can come in handy. The problem is that the drawings are the same. That is, it cannot be said that in the future it will help to draw whole pictures to those whose hands are growing out of jeans pockets. That is, if you do not know how to draw a tiger, you will not succeed in masterpiece. Even if the system recognizes the pattern and gives out a beautiful color tiger, rather than its angular-sketchy 2D copy, anyway, there is no need to talk about uniqueness, since such a tiger will be for everyone who tries to draw it.

A game that can kill time for the good of all.

So we get a game that cankill a little afternoon, but do it to good. The neural network knows what you need to draw and looks at how you do it. After some time, hundreds of thousands of people will draw a conditional felt-tip pen and an algorithm will be created for determining the drawn felt-tip pen.

The system tried to guess but my drawings were too sketchy.

Such “toys” allow you to think abouthow much technology has stepped forward. This is not the case when the assistant in the smartphone checks the mail and creates a reminder of the upcoming flight by finding an electronic ticket in one of the letters. Everything is much more complicated here.

If the algorithm can recognize the drawn piecepizzas, felt-tip pen, bicycle and more, this can be used not only to replace the sketchy image with something more advanced, but also for much more serious tasks.

For example, it can be used inpsychoanalysis, in encryption, in the creation of security systems, in training and many other areas. The main thing is to teach the system to understand what a person “said” and be on the same wavelength with him.
