Creative Adversarial Networks: GANs that make art

Generative Adversarial Networks use a pair of machine-learning models to create things that seem very realistic: one of the models, the "generator," uses its training data to make new things; and the other, the "discerner," checks the generator's output to see if it conforms to the model. Rutgers comp sci prof Ahmed Elgammal runs an Art and AI Lab where they use "Creative Adversarial Networks" to produce new artworks: CANs use a "discerner" that seeks out "novelty," not fidelity to the stat...

Noah Deledda's Incredible Hand-Formed Aluminum Cans

Remember that early design school assignment where you're given a block of material (at my school, wood, at another school I'd heard about, aluminum) and asked to transform it into something using whatever means you choose? The assignment is purposely kept vague, as students are encouraged to be as creative as possible.If the assignment was to transform an aluminum can, rather than a block, Noah Deledda would get an "A." Incredibly, artist/designer Deledda produces th...
