All art (and innovation, really) is about combining existing things in new and unexpected ways. Doesn’t matter whether it’s a machine or person that creates the end result, the art is in the process.

It’s just that with machines and deep learning we can try more variations in a much shorter period of time.

No more waiting to see whether that bunch of disaffected art students sitting around drinking absinthe and smoking strong cigarettes come up with anything good, get a bunch of computers to do it in a fraction of the time - and with far less angst.

Those computers don’t really think. Whatch what you wish for, future might just look like that.
