The thing that stuck with me from Allison Parrish's talk was that her goal as a poet is "not to imitate existing poetry but to find new ways for poetry to exist." This reminded me a bit of the talk given by Robbie Barrat, who also uses computers to generate art. The goal of AI-driven art isn't to replace or mimic artists, but to create new things that could never be conceived by a human. I really liked the example with the cute robot explorer going into the unknown, because robots are truly helping us to explore new areas and should be thought as our helpers rather than competitors.
