Creative machines make pop culture.

Creative AI penetrates into ever new areas of our cultural life. Self-learning algorithms compose music, write novels, influence our senses, search for the right partner for us, know what we want and thus shape our world of experience. Social media and the large network services are both a huge resource for the training of machine learning, as well as a gigantic distribution system. One must be amazed at these developments and must discuss and reflect them at the same time. In the end, the question remains: how far do machines change our creativity and culture today?
