Artificial Intelligence in relation to creative work - Deep Dives
What are the LONER Deep Dives?
A big part of LONER’s work and publishing is fueled by research. We have a love for finding obscure concepts and digging into them as deeply as we can.
The Deep Dives are for people who like to get lost in research and exploration too. Here, we’ll regularly update interesting topics with links, resources, videos and think pieces - making it easy for you to begin your research journey as well.
But, it’s important to note that all media and research comes with bias. Our goal is to collect and share, not create an echo chamber for people to get stuck in. Where we can, we’ll include literature that opposes what we personally feel about some of the topics, so that you can make your own decisions - (as long as that literature does not actively seek to harm or exploit people).
We accept submissions for Deep Dives, and would love to hear what you’d be interested in us covering!
What is Artificial intelligence
Artificial Intelligence is the blanket term we use to describe when a computer is empowered to make a decision based on data inputs, on both a small or complex scale. Ai is not new by any means and has been used in many industries from gaming to popular software programs. This Deep Dive was inspired by the recent uptick in Ai "art" and image generation. You can read LONER's opinion piece on Ai's role in the creative industry here:
