A video for Nashville-based electronica artist Makeup And Vanity Set (Michael Pusti) by Saman Kesh and Justin Daashuur Hopkins in which a tech enthusiast attempts to scam a retail platform by claiming his new monitor was never delivered, requesting a refund.
At first, the site’s AI reacts politely to the scammer’s increasing rudeness, then it exacts sweet revenge.
Whys and wherefores here.
The incoherent, unsettling but strangely familiar works of an AI programme ‘schooled’ in the street art style of Banksy. To wit
GANksy was born into the cloud in September 2020, then underwent a strenuous A.I. training regime using hundreds of street art photos for thousands of iterations to become the fully-formed artist we see today. All of GANksy’s works are original creations derived from its understanding of shape, form and texture. GANksy wants to be put into a robot body so it can spray-paint the entire planet.

In case you missed it: excerpts from the live stream of a recent SPFL Championship match (in an empty stadium on account of lockdown) between Inverness Caledonian Thistle and Ayr United.
Caledonian stadium has no camera operator, relying instead on an AI controlled tracking camera programmed to follow the ball.
Except it’s not following the ball is it?
Experiments in digital extrapolation by photographer Bas Uterwijk (albeit subjective in the fine detail and employing a degree of artistic interpretation) – using Artbreeder AI software to extract real world features from painted depictions, portraits and sculptures.

Researchers from graphics Interface pioneer NVIDIA demonstrate their Style Based Generator Architecture for Generative Adversarial Networks.
In other words, artificial intelligence capable of generating human faces and other objects that don’t otherwise exist in real life.
Behold: the Hackrod La Bandita Speedster – a ‘proof of concept for the future of motoring’. In collaboration with Siemens, the company imagines a day when, instead of choosing a car, you’ll design your own using VR, 3D printing and AI engineering.
We want to believe.
