Robot artist with in-built Gaka-Chu artificial intelligence has created “Cryptograph” – his first artwork based on tweets containing #Satoshi hash tag, thus marking the birth of “machine conceptualism”.
The AI-powered robo-artist Gaka-Chu is a pilot model created by the developers from Airalab under 19W project. The creator of the robot Sergei Lonshakov presented the first resulting work of art on CRYPTUM TV channel, and later at CSHP CLUB meeting.
According to the press release, “each artwork is unique and unrepeated, whereas the process of creation is being registered on blockchain”. Sized 30×30 cm, the first picture was created “through the use of Microsoft cognitive functions, with Twitter publications hashtagged #Satoshi serving as data source”:
““Cryptograph” is the first artwork to be exhibited. The robot will prepare other pieces exclusively for the system-integrated auction,” – the press release reads.
The piece belongs to the founder of CSHP CLUB and 19W art project Olga Dvoretskaya. She believes that in a few decades this work of art will be worth several million dollars as the first example of “machine conceptualism” ever. The worlds of art and blockchain have been converging more and more. For instance, last September, a 31.5% stake in Andy Warhol’s “14 Small Electric Chairs” was sold on a blockchain auction platform.
