Creation with Artificial Intelligence, CAN, Visual Arts


This study aims to explore the role of artificial intelligence (AI) and big data in image analysis research and creation, and propose the leading topic of introducing these technologies -- the construction of tag ring data. In this paper, the concept of AI is discussed, and the trend of image research and the process of image generation in AI are briefly described. In the process of image generation, the role of AI is defined, and it is linked with the concept of AI. This study discusses how image analysis research has developed, and attempts to explore the necessity of utilizing AI and building big data.
