I am an artist who explores creativity with my painting robots. My first machines were plotter printers that simply dipped a brush in paint and dragged it from point to point. My most recent robotic arms, however, use feedback loops, artificial intelligence, and deep learning to operate at the cutting edge of computational creativity. In a recent review of AI-generated art, famed New York Art Critic Jerry Saltz singled out one of my works saying that it was the first one "that doesn’t look like a computer made it.” Unfortunately, the next thing he said was "That doesn't make it any good." But I was still pleased with the review. Just a couple of years ago, the art world did not even accept my AI generated paintings as art. At least now, some are beginning to accept it as "bad art." That's progress for the AI genre. You can see and read more about my art at http://www.cloudpainter.com
