IJART addresses arts and new technologies, highlighting computational art. With evolution of intelligent devices, sensors and ambient intelligent/ubiquitous systems, projects are exploring the design of intelligent artistic artefacts. Ambient intelligence supports the vision that technology becomes invisible, embedded in our natural surroundings, present whenever needed, attuned to all senses, adaptive to users/context and autonomously acting, bringing art to ordinary people, offering artists creative tools to extend the grammar of the traditional arts. Information environments will be the major drivers of culture.
Topics covered include
- New media arts, science and technology
- Interactive/visual theatre, neurobiological base of acting, digital/wearable cinema
- Augmented performance in dance
- Artificial intelligence-based art practice, web art and postmodernism
- Using analysis of artworks in conjunction with AmI to produce novel objects
- Using AmI to promote the creativity of a human user
- Autonomic sensor networks and wearable computers in the performing arts
- Computer vision and optical tracking for music and dance performance
- Cognitive intelligence and natural intelligence for the arts
- Collaborative distributed environments
- Evolutionary art systems that create drawings/images/animations/sculptures/poetry/text
- Evolutionary music systems that create musical pieces/sounds/instruments/voices
- Choreographing media for interactive virtual environments
- New media actors, new media aesthetics
- Social and ethical issues in the arts and technology
The objectives of IJART are to address new works, research and performances in the multi-disciplinary emerging area of new technologies and the arts - and to provide a common platform under which this artwork can be published and disseminated. IJART provides a high-quality platform for this purpose.
IJART provides a vehicle to help professionals, academics, researchers ,artists, museum curators, and graduate students working in the field of arts and technology, to disseminate information and to learn from each other's work.
IJART publishes original research papers, review papers, artworks, performances, conference reports, book reviews, notes, commentaries, and news. Special Issues devoted to important topics in the arts and new technologies will occasionally be published.

Framing artistic style with AI
27 January, 2023
Research in the International Journal of Arts and Technology has looked at how generative adversarial networks (GANs) might be used to transform an artistic image with a given style into a similar image with a different style. For example, a Western abstract transformed into a Chinese figurative image. Tests with this type of artificial intelligence, AI, and the results of questionnaires about the generated art reveal how people in the East and West might perceive artistic style differently when presented with such images. The work might also help us understand art appreciation, concept of beauty and whether or not AI can somehow "understand" art in a parallel manner. Mai Cong Hung of Osaka University and Ryohei Nakatsu, Naoko Tosa, and Takashi Kusumi of Kyoto University, Japan, explain how a new paradigm in AI – big data + deep learning – has emerged. This approach to AI is developing rapidly with many positive results and benefits to those in the field and beyond. There is always the underlying notion that given that the neural networks used in AI are based on our brains there might be some parallels with how these networks function with our own thought processes. Indeed, AI has surpassed human ability in some areas, for instance in playing Shogi (Japanese chess) and Go. These are games of logic and planning but the question arises as to whether AI can compare in terms of creativity and art [...]More details...
