"AI Aesthetics," new book by Lev Manovich

  • Lev Manovich. AI Aesthetics. Moscow: Strelka Press, 2018.

AI plays a crucial role in global cultural ecosystem. It recommends what we should see, listen to, read, and buy. It determines how many people will see our shared content. It helps us make aesthetic decisions when we create media. In professional cultural production, AI has already been adopted to produce movie trailers, music albums, fashion items, product and web designs, architecture, etc.

In the new book AI Aesthetics (2018), Lev Manovich offers a systematic framework to help us think about the cultural uses of AI today and in the future. He challenges existing ideas and gives us new concepts for understanding media, design, and aesthetics in the AI era.
