At aRTiNtECH, we are always curious about the limits of human capacity. Creativity is one of those places that people normally consider as the human territory. However, this assumption is hard to accept without careful analysis of the word creativity, human way of creative work, brain processes, and even current machine capabilities. We know that there are already machines who can compose poems. Similar capabilities would be found in other areas of creativity such as painting and so on. However, there is an even more mysterious world: consciousness. Are the current creative machines conscious of their creative work? Can a machine ever associate a meaning to an art-work? Is it possible to have creativity without consciousness? Is it possible ever to have conscious machines? Is consciousness something real or just a word and a complicated illusion?
So here we go. aRTiNtRCH has started an exploratory journey into the world of consciousness and creativity. Who knows? Maybe someday we come up with our own Machine Picasso, Shakespeare, or Lady Gaga.
