Artificial Intelligence Creativity Machine Learns To Play Beethoven In The Style Of The Beatles’ “Penny Lane”by The Daily Eye Team May 9 2016, 6:47 pm Estimated Reading Time: 0 mins, 40 secs
It is the end of term this week and my film production students asked me to name my favorite part of filmmaking. I told them it’s directing, as it’s something I so rarely get to do (compared to writing) yet so involving that an entire day goes by in a flash. Regardless, I always pop out the other side knowing I was at my absolute creative best. I was in the “zone” or as Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi called it in 1990, “the flow state.” And in a wonderful bit of synchronicity, not a little while later, I have been charged with presenting to you this example of artificial intelligence (AI) creativity. It similarly uses this understanding of the flow state to create.
