Grimes Thinks Computers Will Eventually Make Better

”This might be the last human art that anyone ever cares about.”

Grimes recently spoke about artificial intelligence’s growing capacity to create art on Sean Carroll’s Mindscape podcast, and she expanded on her theories in a new conversation with actress Brit Marling for Interview Magazine.

The Canadian musician explained why she thought about launching a podcast named The Last Artist, which is based on her belief that artificial intelligence is coming close to making “emotional art” that even resonates with humans.

“We might be in the last decade of people who get to make art without competing against computers that are ten million times better and faster and more exciting and more intelligent,” she said. “We might be some of the last human artists who aren’t completely rendered obsolete by artificial intelligence.”

As a result, she posited the present could be the “most important time ever” to make art because “this might be the last human art that anyone ever cares about.”

According to Grimes, the shift in power will occur when computers learn to “emulate hormones,” which will allow artificial intelligence to learn how humans feel. “They’ll be able to be better humans than us,” she said. “They’ll be able to make more emotional art. They’ll be able to access that inaccessible thing.”

She also described the present as a “pyramids got built” moment. “We’re going to be digitizing reality and colonizing space simultaneously, which may be two of the craziest things that will have occurred in the history of humanity,” she said, alluding to her boyfriend Elon Musk’s SpaceX program. “It’s going to happen while we’re alive and while we’re young, which is nuts.”

Falling in line with these comments, Grimes previously described her next album, MIss_Anthropocene, as “a concept album about the anthropomorphic goddess of climate Change” in which “each song will be a different embodiment of human extinction as depicted through a Pop star Demonology.” The project is slated to arrive on February 21, 2020.
