Every week, my team at Invector Labs publishes a newsletter to track the most recent developments in AI research and technology. You can find this week’s issue below. You can sign up for it below. Please do so, our guys worked really hard on this:
From the Editor:
What is creativity? Can artificial intelligence(AI) agents be creative? Those questions spark some of the most passionate debates in the AI community. We all heard the simplistic explanation of the right brain driving creativity while the left brain focus on analytical thinking. From the neuroscience standpoint, the theory doesn’t offer a full picture of how the brain enable creative thinking. The latest neuroscience research suggest that there is not one but different areas of the brain that participate in the creative process depending on the specific tasks.
Can we recreate human-like creativity in AI? Arguably, The most famous example of creative AI was the move 37 during AlphaGo match with Go-legend Lee Sedol. Many experts have defined AlphaGo’s move 37 as the Sputnik moment for AI. Just this week, Microsoft and IBM both unveiled AI systems able to produce art that is indistinguishable from human creation. Is that a new form of creativity?
I will leave you thinking about that subject. Let’s now look at some of the most important headlines in AI research and technology.

This one is pretty crazy…Microsoft researchers just showed an adversarial neural network model that can generate poetry from images
Staying in the creativity domain. The New York Times just published a self-portrait generated by an AI system built by IBM.
