Could AI Change the Way We Think About Authenticity?

Some of the images below were produced by humans and some by artificial intelligence. With major developments in artificial intelligence and style transfer, machine learning programs are now able to discern artistic styles with remarkable accuracy. This information is then utilized to create new works of art or to transpose patterned styles onto previously defined images. Making use of these technologies, the ACT Lab is currently examining how source knowledge (human or artificial intelligence) influences perceptions of creativity, authenticity, and meaning.
