We live in a time when Google has developed artificial intelligence programs that seem to be able to create some form of art and or others can even script science fiction short films. This feels particularly interesting since in the past it was argued that one of the defining characteristics of being human (or I suppose sentient) is the ability to create truly original things such as art.
After releasing the above featured episode also written by some sort of an artificial intelligence (AMAZING reading by Mike Rugnetta), PBS Idea Channel decided to tackle this subject in greater details. But instead of focusing on the question of whether or not artificial intelligences can create art, the episode asks if humanity will actually allow them to do so.
What do you think? Is this really art? Is this crazy? Should we just accept the will of our new robot overlords?
