How does this translate to art? My point is that art is also a form of communication.

We make and consume art for two reasons:

First, yes, also because it's pleasant. Beautifully played music, a well-done painting etc., they're all worthwile in themselves. We like art because it contains ARTISANRY. This is the part that AIs can do well, and are quickly getting better at.

Second, because there is a human being at the other end. Because through art, we are communicating.

Imagine an AI reads past newspapers and can produce realistic-looking newspaper artists. Is that AI obsoleting newspapers?


Because something crucial is missing: The connection to the real world. We don't want to read newspapers because of the way they are written. We want to read them because they tell us about things that other people have observed in the real world.

At most, an AI can help a human journalist to write the actually relevant content in a pleasant format.

All that talk that AI can produce art and will soon surpass human artists is cargo cult bullshit.

True, they create music that sounds somewhat like Bach, pictures that look somewhat like van Gogh, they may even put a lot of people in the art business out of work. But that's irrelevant to the question.
