Recently there has been a lot of interest in AI as Sotheby's and Christie's have sold works created with machine learning (specifically GANs) in the last 12 months. However, AI art is part of a rich history of generative art that goes back 70 years to the analog oscillograms of Herbert W. Franke and the first computer-based works by artists like Michael Noll and Ken Knowlton.

In this panel, founder of Artnome, generative art historian and co-curator of the upcoming show "Automat und Mensch" Jason Bailey leads the discussion about this rich genre poised to capture the long overdue attention it deserves.
