Question About AI

I’m looking through notion of generative art with artificial intelligence.

I want to question the different typologies of algorithms used, what do they produce. What are the “marks” of these tools? Can we consider AI only as a tool or more like a collaborator?

There is a crisis around the notion of author around those technologies, there is some link between the artist, the algorithm and the dataset where I think I need to dig in.  

I would also like to question the use of data and its inherent subjectivity: it could be by using and exploring existing dataset, making my own dataset.

How are the data labeled? what it produces?
