Predictive Art Bot is an algorithm that converts the latest media headlines into artistic concepts.
An artificial intelligence system continuously tracks what is trending among the most influential news sources, in fields as heterogeneous as politics, environment, innovation, culture, activism or health. On this basis, it identifies and combines keywords to generate artwork concepts in a fully automated way, ranging from the unreasonable to the prophetic and the absurd.
The work, which is presented as a website and also as an installation, caricatures the predictability of media-influenced artistic concepts, automating and circumventing the human creative process. But beyond mere automation, it aims to stimulate unbridled, counter-intuitive and even disconcerting associations of ideas.
