As frontrunner in the field of car racing, Alpine has built its legacy by putting technical innovation at the service of performance and sensation. This collaboration with Obvious, a pioneer in AI for art and creator of the first work of this kind to be presented in auction, is a further step of the dialogue between technology and emotion.
This original artwork, created using artificial intelligence algorithms, explores the creative potential of artificial intelligence and its applications in our society.
Alpine’s researchers worked together with the artists to use the latest technologies of machine learning for artistic creation. The creative process consists of using generative adversarial networks, a class of unsupervised learning algorithms, on Alpine history in racing.
Train GANs algorithms on a database of circuits with an emphasis on Alpine’s history and DNA to generate an infinity of new circuits.
Select the Alpine Dream circuit within the creations of the algorithms.
Model the air penetration of the Alpine A110 on a lap on the Alpine Dream Circuit.
Add up the maps and create a stratified 3D representation of the car.
Apply the artistic representation inspired by the sastruga phenomenon.
Create of a canvas based on the decomposition of the elements of the car. Turn it into a topographic map and then into a 3D model of a mountain.
“All our artworks are signed with the mathematical formula of GANs in order to give hints to the viewer on the artistic processus used to create them.”
Obvious is a collective of researchers, artists, and friends, working with the latest models of deep learning to explore the creative potential of artificial intelligence. They are behind the sale of the first AI artwork to go through a major auction house. They use their work to share their vision of artificial intelligence and its implementation in our society.Discover the artists
