Contrary to Popular Intuition – New Study Finds That People Experience Emotions With AI-Generated Art

Jan 20, 2024 | Art

The University of Vienna’s research suggests that people perceive emotions and intentions in art generated by computers, even when informed about its artificial origins. Using basic algorithms, the study aimed for artworks free from human influence. Participants, when wrongly told that human-made art was computer-generated, still favored human art, indicating a subtle yet significant emotional preference. Despite recognizing emotions in both, they reported stronger feelings for human-generated art. This study raises questions about AI’s creative role in art and the distinctions between human and AI-generated artwork, hinting at unexplored complexities in the human-computer relationship within this domain.
