Discover the first concept of AI Artist on the blockchain.

About the Artist:
DeepBlack is thought provoking, and causes us to question the concept of intelligence and the role of technology in today’s world. For many, the idea of artificial intelligence and a world dominated by technology instils fear. DeepBlack causes us to question this view; it shows us that AI can be powerful in a positive way, and that technology can be used to bring hope and achievement to society.
DeepBlack through the concept of anthropomorphism encourages us to begin by engaging with AI and technology in a meaningful way. In turn, we can bring this positive spiral of openness, sharing and altruism beyond technology, and to society and humanity as a whole.
Art generation process:
DeepBlack uses a twostep process to create its art. The Artificial Intelligence engine is a modified Generative Adversarial Network. The first step is the "Generator", the second is the "Discriminator". The process is fed with 50,000 images of existing artwork and the "Generator" attempts to create new artwork based on that input. The role of the "Discriminator" is to see if it can spot which pieces of art are computer generated. If it fails to spot a piece, that piece is considered successful.
Blockchain technology:
A DeepBlack's certificate is tracked via a smart contract on the Ethereum blockchain. Each DeepBlack is represented as a non-fungible token using the ERC-721 token standard on Ethereum.
