Artificial intelligence can write, choreograph, compose music, and churn out visual creations with a striking degree of uniqueness and artistic flair. The big question is - in this collaborative journey of augmenting human capabilities and finding patterns, invisible to naked senses, when would AI, if at all, emerge as a “number one” artist?

The AMC series "Humans," beginning its third season on June 5, imagines a world of Synths, the intelligent humanoid robots, awakened to consciousness and delving into the territory of creativity, notes Live Science.

Musician Taryn Southern explains how working with AI makes her think “out-of-the-box” when creating music, writes the BBC. The neural network lets the system and artist learn from each other, and in the process augment human capabilities in sync with their preferences.
