Publisher's Summary

Ascenti: Humans Opening to AI features a diverse group of professionals, known as “creatives,” who specialize in visual art, writing, photography, audiobook performance, music, and computer games. These individuals experimented by inspiring AI apps to generate works based on prompts derived from their original artworks and writings, then interpreted AI’s outcomes. Some of the creatives found that AI provided positive solutions to overcome visual or other challenges they face. Others uncovered methods where AI supplemented or amplified their artistic visions. Conversely, there were those who voiced AI’s limitations and shortcomings. Artwork from the book can be seen in the accompanying pdf.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Critic Reviews

The cultural and artistic roles of AI have received little attention so far. The Ascenti book is a welcome opening in that direction. It deals with AI used in creating visual arts, literature, and computer games, and analyzes both the new opportunities and limitations in these areas.—Frans Mäyrä, PhD, Researcher of Culture and Society

Based on [Ascenti: Humans Opening to AI], AI appears to offer the most valued input and assistance when it enhances the lives of artists and creatives by making possible things that might otherwise be difficult or impossible to create.—Quill & Quire magazine
