AI Art with AICAN

NFT Radio is back for a new season of dissecting topics at the forefront of NFT culture and technological development! This Thursday, we are exploring AICAN, a patented autonomous AI artist developed by Dr. Ahmed Elgammal, which uses a complex algorithm to draw from art historical knowledge to create something new! Significantly, AICAN created the first machine-generated works that passed the Turing test.

We’ll dive into how this AI artist has processed over 100,000 images to develop its own aesthetic without human intervention, what it means to be an artist at all, and the implications artificial intelligence has on the NFT market and culture.

We’ll also discuss AICAN’s upcoming drop on SuperRare, where it will auction 3 of its flagship pieces: Faceless Portrait #1, Permutation, and Birth of Venus which was featured in HBO’s Silicon Valley, Season 5, Episode 3!

Leading up to the drop, AICAN is hosting a giveaway for Faceless Portrait #56 from the series “Faceless Portrait Transcending Times”, which was the first AI Art gallery exhibition in a major New York City gallery. Join the competition here. For an extra edge, we will drop a secret code on the show that gets you 10 extra entries!

Presenting “AI Art wit AICAN” Thursday, June 29th at 8:00pm CST.

In 2017, an Artsy editorial acclaimed AICAN as “the biggest artistic achievement of the year”. In 2016, a TV segment about his research, produced for PBS, won an Emmy award.
