These awesome BMW 8 series art cars have been designed by AI
And they look quite cool
BMW has been very famous for its art cars and the German brand has revealed a number of 8 series art cars designed by Artificial Intelligence.
BMW collaborated with Nathan Shipley of Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, and Gary Yeh, art collector and founder of ArtDrunk for this project - called 'The Ultimate AI masterpiece'.
An ‘open source StyleGAN artificial intelligence software’ was used to design these art cars using cross-references of over 50,000 images of artwork from the past 900 years. WOW
“AI is an emerging medium of creative expression. It’s a fascinating space where art meets algorithm,” said Shipley. “Combining the historical works with the curated modern works and projecting the evolving images onto the 8 Series Gran Coupé serves a direct nod to BMW’s history of uniting automobiles, art, and technology.”
Shipley and Yeh worked on this project using without even being together. They worked digitally from San Francisco and Seoul. These awesome art cars will be displayed at Frieze New York 2021 at The Shed in Manhattan.
