The artist formerly known as Grimes (whose legal name is now c, as in the speed of light) was a guest on theoretical physicist / astrophysicist Sean Carrol’s podcast Mindscape this week, as Pitchfork notes. “Once there's actually AGI (Artificial General Intelligence), they're gonna be so much better at making art than us...once AI can totally master science and art, which could happen in the next 10 years, probably more like 20 or 30 years,” she reportedly told Carrol. “I feel like we're in the end of art, human art.” Carrol and Grimes also discussed virtual avatars: Grimes has one in the works, which might be called “War Nymph,” according to Pitchfork.
