Have always wondered where exactly creativity came from. Dissecting my own artistic process and teaching it to robots is my attempt at a better understanding. When I began they were only capable of the simplest tasks, like connecting dots and painting by numbers. My most recent robots, however, use deep learning, artificial intelligence, generative algorithms, and computational creativity to make a surprising amount of independent aesthetic decisions.
They are beyond being simple assistants. My robots are now effectively augmenting my own creativity.
