Artificial intelligence, the new frontier of creation?

On May 11, 1997, France was not yet a world football champion but marked a more decisive match history, declaring an uprising for our civilization. I remember, the news was everywhere. Chess champion Gary Kasparov, the best man in the discipline, lost in the sixth game of a historic match against the Deep Blue, a 1.4-ton supercomputer designed by IBM on which software was run whose computing capacity reached 200 million potential hits per second.

Since then, the device has challenged people on everything. Will we be helpful? Did you know, for example, that the job for which there is the most tension, for which there are now the fewest candidates, is the truck driver? Why? Because Trakker nurtures his freedom, his profession is on the street, he lives there in a secluded priesthood divided by the Vivuakas fraternity. This profession has become computerized in such a way that the journey and its short break are guided by the machine. While waiting for the fully autonomous vehicle, the driver does not oversee the computer, he assists them.

So, world chess champion or deliverer, will we form alliances, will we build symbiosis, inadvertently, with machines? This question has fascinated me the most in recent months. And it is in the artistic field that I find it most interesting. How to make with machine? How do you challenge the machine to defeat Kasparov and create a work that surpasses the work of Picasso and Proust? Or, rather, pet it to make it better with a new chisel, a pen, or a completely new kind of palette? What to do with the power of Leonardo da Vinci Deepmind, the Google startup behind Alfago and GPT-3, an OpenAI-enhanced artificial intelligence that can think and learn like humans or Shakespeare from assistive software? Jasper’s handwriting?

These three technologies have begun to have an impact on industry and design. For example, GPT-3 is used to create realistic 3D images of people and objects. Deepmind’s algorithm is used to create stunning realistic simulations. And Jasper is widely used for product descriptions or natural references to e-commerce sites.

Book with So do we sell the Mona Lisa? Published by JC Lattès earlier this year, I began to explore these new frontiers and began to dream of a new renaissance in Europe, started by our creative industry. And like all creative practice, you can absolutely practice as a beginner… so I registered, I watched the tutorial, I tried, deleted, started again. I believe it a lot. This article is illustrated by my first work created with an artificial intelligence, which allows Google’s Colab service to execute Python commands from their browsers via Diffusion Disco v4.1 – if anyone wants – and for free. So easy, trust me. This image responds to the sweet name given to the artificial intelligence script it created: [“A man looking like Elon Musk reading Stratégies magazine while sitting in a spacecraft flying to Mars.”, “blue color scheme”]

But let’s end with a wish and a confession. When Thierry Ardison announces a big innovation on TV with the dead – Dalida and Jean Gabin – revived by artificial intelligence as they have already spoken, Kim Kardashian scares museum curators around the world over the most famous borrowing of Marilyn Monroe this week. Dress to climb the steps of the Met Gala, I hope that these technologies will have the potential to be more innovative than copying or rehearsing above all. I am sure that creation in an uncertain world will surprise us all even more. Confidence Finally, in this column, five lines (about 10% of the total) are written by an artificial intelligence, can you recognize them?
