Spreading the Word: How AI Interprets Art?

Have you ever felt bewildered when looking at contemporary art? I know I have. Sometimes it is even difficult to understand what is art anymore. Maybe such musings are part of art’s genius. So imagine what it is like for an AI to ‘interpret’ contemporary art. How would an algorithm go about recognising art and recording its meaning?

Here is an interesting video on just this topic: a recent project called Recoding Art. Enjoy!

Keeping up the “Spreading the Word” tradition, I hope to share an insightful and thought-provoking article or video every weekend. I feel it is essential to care for our physical and mental well-being. Humans have always turned and returned to storytelling to find meaning. My weekends’ “Spreading the Word” posts are an online version of sharing meaningful stories.   

keep exploring and storytelling!
