Arcu is an artifcial curator, a computer program created by artist Tillmann Ohm. “The Artist’s Machine” is a computational research project developed to establish the historic background of the expert system’s special field of machine art. This generated book provides insight into Arcu’s self-gained knowledge.
From researching topic-relevant literature, detecting semantic structures in hundreds of papers and books, to finally generating the publication’s chapters with images and paraphrased text citations, every step in the process has been performed automatically, initiated by a simple input phrase.
