Contemporary artist Cai Guo-Qiang’s artificial intelligence (AI) art project, cAI™ (pronounced “AI Cai”), draws from his long-established artistic philosophy and methodology to develop a custom AI program. The AI deep learns from Cai’s rich oeuvre, extensive writings, archival materials, and documentation. cAI™ also acquires knowledge in the diverse fields in which Cai has had a lifelong intellectual interest, such as cosmology and the unseen world.
cAI™ is an expansive, experimental art project, a multi-modal synthesis that grows organically alongside the course of Cai’s life and with the advancement of new technology. It is both a new work by Cai and a collaborative partner with whom he is in dialogue—a partner who has the potential to create independently in the future.
