Generated art descriptions from analyzed language.
Art Review Generator is a natural language processing tool and text generator that uses deep matrices of probability to generate and analyze language used to describe fine art. It takes a set of words as a prompt and then generates a medium length set of sentences that approximate the training data, which is 57 years of art reviews from Artforum. This tool is not an artificial intelligence, but it is used as an example of AI in mainstream news articles. The interpreter does not understand the prompt or the training data, but it does have a billion examples of how words are used together in typical sentences. Modern art reviews are used to train the tool because the language used is distinctive and unique to human expression. The tool can generate plausible sentences and larger constructs of language that simulate a thesis and supporting statements. It can also reveal bias, prejudice, and judgement in some of the generated results, as well as its own effects from the training process. The language of art reviews has changed over the years and this generator combines perspectives from multiple decades in novel ways.
