Ear: What can artificial intelligence bring to the industry?

AI can bring a new source of creativity to the industry. It was demonstrated by Diana Landy at the World Artificial Intelligence Cannes Festival through three projects: NEFFIE (Your Emotional and Cognitive Response to an Image), “Miroir D’Art” (Transfer a Video in the Style of an Image) and AI-produced Tables (pictured). Human emotion).

Artificial intelligence starts with art. It is this meeting of industry and technology, sometimes the subject of controversy, that was highlighted during the WAICF, the World Artificial Intelligence Cannes Festival, which took place last weekend at the Palace des Festival. This is powered by Art and AI components Diana LandyEuropIA Institute’s IA and art expert, president of Art-Tech, was featured on the show by three projects: NEFFIE (analysis of your emotional and cognitive responses to an image), “Mirror of Art” (real-time, video transfer in an illustrated work style) and AI. Tables generated by (human emotions are automatically expressed in images). (Photo WTM: Diana Landy in front of the Mirror of Art).

“People choose images based on algorithms”

“Combined with deep learning, quantitative explosion of digital data, Internet of Things, remote storage and, above all, AI quantum complexity, will not only be able to significantly increase the speed of data processing but will also be able to predict and stimulate certain natural processes.”To explain Diana Landy, Enthusiastic about the subject. Which, for him, does not in any way hinder human creativity in the development of works of art. “People chose images based on algorithms.” He continued with the example of the famous portrait of Edmund Bellamy produced using an algorithm. “People see and interpret work. It’s the people who choose the frame, who set a price, sell or buy this work. “.

At WAICF, the three spaces dedicated to industry and AI reflect this alliance between humans and technology.

  • AI-generated table The purpose of highlighting an AI system was to create tables that express people’s emotions like sadness, fear, anger, joy. The two actors, man and machine, thus communicate a common purpose: to express inner feelings in an artistic way.
  • Art mirrors The amazing thing was that a camera constantly filmed you and the video was projected on a big screen. Initially, the rendering was a traditional camera. But thanks to an AI system, the image can be converted in real time and adapted to the style of painting you choose, including color, design and size. Based on in-depth learning, and especially on “style transfer”, the technology used by this system allows to identify the features of an illustrated work style and its transfer to real images. Surprised to see Kandinsky, Fernand Lager, or the Japanese enter a painting of Hokusai and his iconic “Great Wave”.
  • The third presentation, that Nefi (Art, Future and Artificial Intelligence) Just as amazing. Developed from the creative reinterpretation of a photo booth, the NEFFIE platform processes our emotional and cognitive responses to the observation of an image and gives us a realistic representation of it. He makes the invisible visible by offering a completely unique photograph for each of us, a photograph that conveys our personal view of the world. The experience has been revisited in an old Italian photo booth, equipped with specific biosensors and of course AI algorithms.

An experience that will be tested again until April 26 Visit the St. Paul de Venice Gallery. The NEFFIE project will be further explored at the Milan Image Art Fair, followed by similar events in the autumn in Venice.
