Typically (though not always) the Lpers who do it for the money, and not as a hobby or for fun, are really crappy and derivative. The only Lpers I can actually stand are ChipandIronicus, and if they want ad revenue there are tons of other video uploading sites they can move to. Youtube is nice and convenient, but I don't mind having to go to blip or dailymotion. I don't think there's anything wrong with making money / a living off playing video games, but I certainly don't think people like Pewdiepie deserve to be millionaires for yelling while they play a game poorly.
A) How many times did you wonder your purpose and what you desired? Does you have seen any machine wonder about those subjects?
B) Even then it is programmed. It is doing something it was programmed for. Call me quaint, but I believe art is born from the difference of perspective between the artist and the audience? it is born from subjectiveness rather than impartial objectivity, independent of processing power. It isn't a measure of capacity but of individuality.
A) It's hard to see a machine think, just as it's hard to see a person think.
B) Why can't machines have subjectivity and individuality? Random number generators exist; from that, we could necessarily create individuality.
Dear lord Video Game King, every thread doesn't have to become an argument about semantics. Machines are distinctly programmed to act rationally (something humans have been proven not to always do), and they are bound by a set of rules. Humans are bound by rules such as physics and physical limitations and all that, but they aren't bound by laws of thought, which is pretty much what this entire thread is about. And RNG is not individuality as there is a limited amount of numbers that can be chosen by a random number generator (as there has to be a limit, otherwise it's possible the RNG could randomly generate a number that would take so long to process that the computer would crash).
But if you want to argue some more about whether humans and computers are the same or not, keep going.
On topic of the actual topic, yeah probably. There's plenty of "acclaimed art" that looks fairly pedestrian to me (and others probably), I don't see why a computer couldn't make something at least equal to the worst acclaimed art.
I doubt I'll get the time (since I mostly just play Dishonored over and over), but I finally played the demo for Beyond: Two Souls and now I want it. And I should finish Tomb Raider and Infinite which I have just recently started.
