We are an artist and some scientists making art with quantum computing. Ask us anything!
We are doing this AMA from an exhibition of the art of Roman Lipski in Berlin. Roman is known for using AI as a muse for his art, helping him to transition from being a classical painter to a modern artist. More recently he has been looking into using quantum computing as another inspirational tool.
Specifically, Roman has been using the Quantum Blur method developed at IBM Quantum. This was created as a first step towards using quantum computers for tasks in procedural generation. It was original conceived of by researcher and serial-AMAer Dr James Wootton. Since then, it’s been made into something properly usable by software developer Marcel Pfaffhauser.
We at IBM are still working developing new tools for procedural generation. One current direction is looking at quantum natural language processing with intern Amin Karamlou.
Roman, James, Marcel and Amin will all be answering questions about art and/or quantum computers from nowish until they stop.
Edit: Answers are now slow as the exhibition has kicked off again.
Edit 2: I'll take a look at new questions in the morning. But otherwise, that's about it. Thanks for the questions!
