AI: Artistic Tool or Collaborator?

As applications of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in artistic practices become increasingly advanced, so have the interactions between humans and AIs. What AIs generate can affect and inform what humans do, and vice versa, giving rise to feedback loops that can constitute a crucial aspect of the production of a work. Resultantly, some artists have started describing these systems as creative partners or collaborators. If it is appropriate to describe these dynamics in terms of collaboration, as I demonstrate, it is important to determine the form and nature of these joint efforts, given the appreciative relevance of different types of contribution to the production of an artwork. Accordingly, I examine three kinds of collaboration that can be found in the philosophical literature on artistic authorship – collective authorship, co-creatorship, and co-production - to determine whether human-AI interactions comprise joint efforts as per such kinds, or whether AI systems are just particularly complex artistic tools.
