THE EXHIBIT, “FACELESS PORTRAITS TRANSCENDING TIME”, HOUSED AT THE NEW YORK HG CONTEMPORARY GALLERY, CARRIES ART MADE BY ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE. THE AI WAS DESIGNED BY COMPUTER SCIENCE PROFESSOR AHMED ELGAMMAL, WHERE THE ART IS PRODUCED THROUGH A PROCESS CALLED “CREATIVE ADVERSARIAL NETWORK”; A VARIANT TYPE OF “GENERATIVE ADVERSARIAL NETWORKS” (GAN FOR SHORT) FROM WHICH AI’S SOFTWARE ARE MADE WITH. THIS IS HOW THE MACHINE LEARNS – BASED ON WHAT INFORMATION IS GIVEN TO IT – AND THEN CREATES THE ART, BASED ON WHAT DATA IT HAS COMPLIED. IN THIS PARTICULAR SCENARIO, THE AI WAS GIVEN OVER 100K IMAGES OF WESTERN PORTRAITS FROM THE LAST 500 YEARS, TO BE ABLE TO CREATE THE EXHIBIT NARRATIVE.
