    Do you think AI will in short term replace certain artist's work? Will 3D printing put sculptors out of business? Very much like to hear your opinion on this. Thanks.

    AIs only work within their programming. Software only does what the user tells it to do, AIs aren't an exception. 3D printing is done by people, not the printer. I don't think there's anything at all to worry about. :)


    Thank you Llachar...
    The day a computer can create and design an organic sculpture in Zbrush 3D software, and then print it out is still far away.
    That makes me feel my work is worthwhile.


    AIs may understand the technique and so forth. But art is not just technique. It's also about the human experience and the AI cannot truly understand that. I doubt it ever can, at least in this lifetime.


    Just thinking out-loud here: AI probably would be able to understand and create art (not necessarily human) only if its 'brain' as complex as ours. But (!) once it gets to that point, it would become 'alive' in certain sense. That means it would have as much right to be an artist as any human. And consequently it won't be replacing human artists but will be standing right next to them.
    If it's not completely human-like in brain, body and perception, the AI's art would have to be most likely alien.

    Of course, unless Mankind comes with a sudden breakthrough, we're a loooooooooooong way from creating any synthetic lifeforms. I mean, we can't quite replicate even the eye and image processing at this point, though some progress was made. Still it requires very powerful hardware and/or a lot of time. Artist are safe from any sort of alien competition for at least a lifetime =D
