With the continuous development of AI, whether it is life or work, human beings are more and more closely connected with it.
In 2020, when black swan events occur frequently, although there are many frustrations, the application and landing of AI will be accelerated unprecedentedly.
As the new year approaches, what is AI’s next step?
Recently, at the invitation of Professor Wu Enda of Stanford University, Shen Xiangyang, chairman of Xiaobing company and double employed professor of Tsinghua University, published his “foresight” on this issue based on Xiaobing and “Ai helps art”.
Shen Xiangyang: we should pay attention to how AI can help human beings release their creativity
I foresee that in 2021, the AI community will create more tools to release human creativity. Artificial intelligence will help people all over the world to communicate and express their emotions and emotions in different ways.
We have already created machines that are perfectly competent for all kinds of logical tasks, and their computing scale and speed are far beyond human thinking.
One of the most eye-catching examples is that the chang’e-5 probe landed on the moon, collected lunar soil, returned to the earth’s surface, and used these materials for scientific research. In our daily life, we are also used to using Microsoft Word, Excel and other tools to continuously improve productivity.
However, in some tasks, human beings continue to dominate the world, especially in the field of art.
The left brain is mainly responsible for logic and calculation, while the right brain provides more creativity and imagination. It is this side of creativity that inspires everyday interaction and enables human beings to thrive.
We use language to communicate with each other, express abstract concepts and convey emotions. We also express ourselves through art forms, creating meaningful music, art, dance and design.
Artificial intelligence has also made some new progress in creation recently. Especially, by using deep learning (such as generating confrontation network) and language model (such as gpt-3), realistic images and reasonable words can be synthesized almost out of thin air.
In recent years, AI Xiaobing has shown amazing “humanoid” performance in poetry, painting and music. For example, Xiaobing helped wechat users create more poems in a week than the total number of poems recorded in Chinese history!
In the past, professionals looking forward to success in the field of art, such as painting, music, poetry and dance, had to study and practice hard for years. As the Chinese saying goes, “three minutes on stage, ten years off stage”; as the popular saying goes, “ten thousand hours” is the threshold from ordinary to professional.
I expect that tools such as Xiaobing x suites can help everyone to reduce the cost of repeated practice and put their precious energy into creating more rounded ideas and more imaginative expressions.
I look forward to seeing more AI creation tools in the coming year to help people express their artistic ideas and inspiration. Artificial intelligence has long proved that it can help human beings improve their productivity.
From now on, we should turn our attention to the great event that AI helps people release their creativity.
