How Art meets Artificial Intelligence | YQP and Roman Lipski | TEDxMünster

Every day artificial intelligence breaks new records and surpasses more and more human capabilities. But can artificial intelligence be truly intelligent when it comes to art? To address this question, the painter Roman Lipski and the digital art collective YQP collaborated on the first project of its kind.

“Unfinished One” is an attempt to create a truly artistic intelligence; It’s the first AI that inspires, challenges, and provokes the artist, just like a muse.

Roman Lipski is a Polish painter who has lived and worked in Berlin since 1989. His art has been exhibited in numerous museums all over the world – such as the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the National Art Museum of China or the Elgiz Museum of Contemporary Art in Istanbul. Furthermore his work is part of several art collections such as the Marx Collection at Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin.

YQP is an artist collective consisting of Maximilian Hoch, Florian Dohmann and Manuel Urbanke from NY & Berlin. With projects like “Der Datenmarkt” the group reflects on topics of our time and blends technology with interactive storytelling. Their interactive art experiments have been featured in the press all over Germany and sparked discussion on digital privacy and the value of labour. The group is collaborating with the media production company derringer productions documenting their experiments.
