Artificial intelligence is increasingly being used in a wide variety of industries – from entertainment in social networks to advanced editing of animation based on several static frames. The creative professions did not bypass the neural network – at the ARTificial exhibition held in Moscow, Microsoft told about the capabilities of modern AI algorithms and demonstrated achievements in various fields of art.
One of the most remarkable elements of the exhibition was the performance "Neuro Kandinsky". Microsoft's neural network, trained in abstract paintings by Vasily Kandinsky and the musical works that inspired him, painted a picture based on the song “At the Dawn” of the Alliance group.
The exhibition organizers demonstrated other creative achievements of the AI, capable of creating various works of art: paintings , music and texts. For example, based on the analysis of 50 different tracks, the electronic composer wrote music and poems for a Christmas song , and after studying the texts of children's fairy tales and works by Chekhov, he tried his hand as a writer .
At the end of the event, visitors were offered to familiarize themselves with several texts, paintings and musical compositions and to guess which ones were created by man and which ones were generated by the Microsoft neural network. In some cases, it was not possible to identify the author without a hint.
