I’m often asked to speak on how we are progressing with artificial intelligence and how it can be more human. Well, we are seeing some incredible and weird creative artificial intelligence (AI) and I wanted to showcase some examples.
Maybe this is the future of creativity and we just need to get used to a new way of processing how AI sees our world and endear ourselves to it? And, maybe these mistakes are truly just terrible ideas. Let’s take a look…

Sunspring (short film)
In the wake of Google’s AI Go victory, filmmaker Oscar Sharp turned to his technologist collaborator Ross Goodwin to build a machine that could write screenplays.

The filmmakers behind ‘Sunspring’ have come back with a new short starring David Hasselhoff, Tom Payne, Tim Guinee, Sarah Hay, and Jake Broder.
