(ECNS) -- Yang Lan, a Chinese media proprietor and talk show host, said she believes it will be hard for artificial intelligence tools to replace human beings in artistic endeavors.
Yang shared her views during the Internet Film Theme Forum, which ran alongside the ninth Beijing International Film Festival currently underway.
Yang said she has reached a point where she understands the roles of Internet and AI in art creation, such as the application of AI in painting, music composition, screenwriting, and film editing.
However, she agreed with an artist’s opinion that the machine is always looking for a standard answer, while people's emotions have no standard answer, she said.
As a result, she believes that people’s abilities to imagine, create, and show empathy will be difficult to replace with AI.
