About ALAgrApHY

is a Paris-based Artist (painter, photographer and filmmaker) and Scientist (PhD in Complex Systems and expertise in AI and Data Science) who has been teaching machines to create art since 2013 with Generative art and algorithmic art and since 2016 using deep learning CNNs RNNs GANs... His AI-generated artwork marked a sale at the Grand Palais on Feb, 13th 2018 before the internet witnessed the AI ART buzz lead by Christie's. His series of thousands of unique faces of all diversity, ages and genders, generated by Artificial Intelligence, or AI ART, more precisely using Generative Adversarial Networks are trained on a database of faces that he has captured with his camera for the 1001 faces project. He won several art science awards such as the ISCB Art Science competition and the Biomed scientific image. He has had several exhibitions in 2018. The most noteworthy is at the Salon d'Automne at the Champs Elysees in Paris at which his "D'ame(s) Souriante(s)", meaning smiling Lady or smiling souls, received the "digital art" award. The Salon d'Automne has exhibited Picasso and Rodin and has been the birthplace of art movements such as cubism and fauvism. At the Grand Palais ALAgrApHY exhibited "Muse(s) Endormie(s)" meaning sleeping muse(s). The following exhibition will take place at the Grand Palais on . Several collaborations (Unesco and Mairie de Paris) exhibitions and art installations are planned for 2019 such as the soon to be announced Collective Brain X.

History of AI-Generated Art or AI ART

"I woke up one August morning in 2018 with my mailbox swamped with friends' emails about Christie's making worldwide headlines and claiming to auction an AI artwork that suddenly became dubbed as the first to be auctioned. This surely left many of the AI Artists, Creative Coders and Algorists frustrated without a single exposure. I am grateful for the Salon d'Automne for the exposure it has offered me and the wonderful experience that I share throught this short clip".

> Q. Will AI replace Artists?
AI is just a tool to enhance artists' self-expression. A decade ago, people feared that the camera will replace traditional artists but it only created a new form of art. AI is just a tool, an extension of the artist's paintbrush. AI is far from becoming fully autonomous and independent of its maker. Those who claim otherwise do so only to seek media attention.

Q. Who is the Artist, in this case, man or machine?
When man writes a code to adapt the machine to his own needs, man has succeeded in creating a tool for expressing himself, just like the camera is a tool for capturing pictures, and just like the stone was a tool for etching cave drawings… The creative code or creative AI is only creative in a way that the camera is creative and useful for the camera man.

. Je suis artiste scientifique et j'apprends les machines, avec l'aide de l'intelligence artificielle, à halluciner des visages (des personnes qui n'existent pas) de toute diversité et de toute âge afin de les rassembler automatiquement avec des algorithmes pour créer des mosaïques gigantesques que j'ai eu l'honneur d'exposer cette année au salon de la comparaison au Grand Palais et bientôt au Salon d'automne 25-28 Oct 2018. . Je vous invite à découvrir mes deux séries . I'm an artist scientist and I use AI to teach machines to hallucinate faces (of non-existent people) of all diversity, ages and gender that I reassemble automatically with algorithms to create gigantic mosaics.

Response to Christie's self-proclaimed first AI ART auction.
Thanks to all those who were of support

ALAgrApHY's response to Christie's after they made a huge buzz about their false claims about both the first AI art and AI auction, none of which was true! However, jouralists care little about the truth with respect to the buzz! Welcome to the era of fake news!
