HBO Vice Piece on CloudPainter - The da Vinci Coder

Typically the pun applied to artistic robots make me cringe, but I actually liked HBO Vice's name for their segment on CloudPainter.  

Spent the day with them couple of weeks ago and really enjoyed their treatment of what I am trying to do with my art.  Not sure how you can access HBO Vice without HBO, but if you can it is a good description of where the state of the art is with artificial creativity.  If you can't, here are some stills from the episode and a brief description...
