Problem statement: The increasing use of artificial intelligence in the field of visual arts has led to the creation of innovative and diverse works of art. However, despite the widespread interest of artists in using this technology, its place and importance in creating an artwork has not been carefully evaluated. Among the central questions in this regard is the role of artificial intelligence in the formation of original works of art.
Research objectives: The purpose of this research is to investigate the role and importance of artificial intelligence in creating original works of art. For this purpose, the works of Harold Cohen, who is one of the pioneers of using artificial intelligence in the art of painting, will be evaluated. Therefore, in the first part, the concept of artificial intelligence is briefly stated. Then the Chinese room thought experiment, which is one of the most prominent tests related to artificial intelligence, will be used as a tool to check the performance of the machine "AARON", created by Harold Cohen. In this test, "creativity", "awareness" and "experience" will be evaluated as the main components of producing original works of art. In the following, problems related to the role of the mentioned components in the performance of AARON will be listed. Finally, an attempt is made to present a new formulation of these fundamental concepts, despite the flaws in the works produced by AARON, it has an undeniable role in the creation of the artwork.
Research method: In order to evaluate AARON's performance in the formation of the artwork, this research considers John Searle's approach and his Chinese room argument.
Conclusion: Artificial intelligence plays an important and undeniable role in the production of original, innovative and creative works of art.
