The technologies underlying this shift will push us into new creative realms. But this boom will have a dark side, too. For Backchannel’s 2018 predictions edition, Sandra Upson delves into the future of artificial intelligence and the double edged sword its increasing sophistication will present. “A world awash in AI-generated content is a classic case of a utopia that is also a dystopia,” she writes. “It’s messy, it’s beautiful, and it’s already here.” “The algorithms powering style transfer are gaining precision, signalling the end of the Uncanny Valley — the sense of unease that realistic computer-generated humans typically elicit…” the article argues. “But it’s not hard to see how this creative explosion could all go very wrong.”
