Automata Artificial and Otherwise
We take a deeper dive into two kinds of AI referred to as automata being used to produce music and art. Initially, automata theory was viewed as a model for behavior of neural networks, which were regarded as the mechanistic substrate of intelligence. Some considered the possibility of an artificial neuron, which led to the idea that these networks could be modeled mathematically. Cellular automata and as discussed, evolutionary programming, deal with patterns and regularities that are being employed in AI music production.
