Artist Sam Leach’s work focuses on a connection between science and art, in a more modern twist. He uses AI to compose art that he then paints. It’s a blending of two fields in a similar way that researchers are blending machine learning and neuroscience, to push the limits of AI. We talk also talk to neuroscientist Emeritus Professor Srini Srinivasan, whose work inspired Sam.

An exhibition of a collaboration between Sam and Srini, an exhibition called Birds and Bees, was held at the University of South Australia.

"My intention in using machine learning is to find similarities and connections in images across time, but instead of using my own intuition, the process is based on mathematics and probability," says Sam.
