Wall art, poetry, music and even movies: this is how AI is transforming the creative industry

In a previous article we discussed how Artificial Intelligence is pushing the boundaries of art, and how collaboration between humans and AI is enriching the creative industries. Although the term "AI Art" is often used to refer to wall art made by Artificial Intelligence, the rise of these generative techniques has impacted other artistic domains such as musicpoetry and even film.

Wall Art. After a portrait made by AI was sold at auction at Christies for almost $500k, we have seen many other digital artists exploring this domain. Some of the most relevant pioneers in this field are Cueva Gallery (Ireland), D'Agostino AI (France) and, of course, our own gallery AImade.art (Norway) ;-)

Music. One of the emerging uses of AI nowadays is the generation of music in collaboration with humans. Two useful resources are MuseNet and Magenta, which are tools that allow you to create your own music with different styles.


Poetry. Robot poetry is becoming so good that, according to this experiment by Microsoft and Kyoto University, most people couldn't differentiate it from human poetry. One good example is Poem Portraits, a Google project where you can inspire a robot to create poetry. This is the personalized poem we got:

Your serendipity can throw 
the waters of the sun.
Our ignition stars
discover the wild waves


Movies. 
There are even movies already directed, written and even performed by AI, but don't expect a masterpiece (yet). This one is called Zone Out and it is worth watching (6 min):

How to jump to time offsets in HTML5 video

Let's say that you have a 30-minute WEBM video file, from which you just want to play the following video segments , jumping from one to the other automatically  without interruptions : [00:01:25.00 - 00:02:25.00] -> from second 85 to 145 [00:11:40.00 - 00:11:55.00] -> from second 700 to 715 [00:20:26.00 - 00:21:07.00] -> from second 1226 to 1267 [00:26:11.00 - 00:28:01.00] -> from second 1571 to 1681 To increase the complexity, let's think that you have these video segments in a PHP variable $arrayVideoSegments  (normally the case if they were retrieved from the database).   $arrayVideoSegments[0]->startTime = 85   $arrayVideoSegments[0]->endTime = 145   $arrayVideoSegments[1]->startTime = 700   $arrayVideoSegments[1]->endTime = 715   $arrayVideoSegments[2]->startTime = 1226   $arrayVideoSegments[2]->endTime = 1267   $arrayVideoSegments[3]->startTime = 1571   $arrayVideoSegments[3]->endTime = 1681 The fo

5 learnings from a techie turned into a NFT artist

In September 2021 I chose to sell my crypto AI art business after two enriching (and often painful) years as a part-time sole founder. Today  AImade.art  is one of the best-selling AI art collections on Opensea . I want to share with you some of the key lessons I learned during this period: Work hard and get lucky.  And I got really lucky. On February 24th 2021 I had planned to shut down AImade.art , back then a business selling AI Art printed on canvas. I was discouraged after several months with no sales and my Shopify billing cycle was ending that day. Then something incredible happened: I missed the Shopify deadline and I sold an artwork one hour later. The buyer asked me: " Can I get it in as an NFT? ". I had absolutely no idea what an NFT was, but after a bit of research I found the concept so interesting that, two days later, I had pivoted the entire business to  NFT art made by AI . Sales started to pick up: I had finally found product-market fit . Impostor syn

Microsoft will soon launch a feature to schedule chat messages on Teams

In 2021 I wrote an article  where I shared why I started scheduling my emails and the positive impact this easy action has had on the wellbeing of the recipients and on my own work-life balance . However, one of my frustrations is that, as of today, it is not possible to schedule chat messages or posts on Microsoft Teams. Have you ever received a push notification on a Friday evening  from a non-urgent message that could have easily waited until Monday? Yes, you know what I am talking about! The good news is that Microsoft is currently working on this feature, and it is expected to be released in July 2022 , as we can see on Microsoft's roadmap . It was back in June 2019 when this useful functionality was first proposed on Microsoft Tech Community . It soon gained many supporters that pushed it through the approval channels. I can't wait to start using this!
