When Is Art Not Art in the Science Zoo?

Sails Art Harmonograph

Take 1 - A Comparative Study of Computational Aesthetics — When is art not art? Or when can a machine make art?

A machine can classify, but always in reference to other things. Humans can classify, but they have been trained before on what makes something beautiful of not.

beautiful doesn’t mean meaningful, sometimes.

Take 2 - Why are tech companies making custom typefaces? — An interesting read, with an historical perspective (I love timelines :-) ).

Take 3 - Bio-inspired computing: Algorithms review, deep analysis, and the scope of applications — Genetic Bee Colony (GBC) Algorithm, Fish Swarm Algorithm (FSA), Cat Swarm Optimization (CSO), Whale Optimization Algorithm (WOA), Artificial Algae Algorithm (AAA), Elephant Search Algorithm (ESA), Chicken Swarm Optimization Algorithm (CSOA), Moth flame optimization (MFO), and Grey Wolf Optimization (GWO) algorithm? You have to love this science ZOO. And you MUST read it.
