Originally published on Towards AI.

This week, I had a fantastic discussion with Mariam Brian, an amazing artist and CEO of Holo Art. This episode is perfect for those curious about how AI is not just a tool but a collaborator in the creative process, transforming traditional art forms and pioneering new expressions of creativity. Whether you’re an artist, technologist, or simply an AI enthusiast, this episode offers a unique perspective on how technology and human creativity are becoming increasingly intertwined.

This week, the community was active, with exciting contributions and opportunities. The featured post on Blam’s VideoSum, a new video summarizer, captures our community’s innovative spirit! I’d also chat about procrastination. I know it’s something we all deal with, so I’m curious: how do you tackle it? Share your thoughts in this week’s poll! Remember to explore the collaboration opportunities in our Discord community if you want to join an AI startup or seek a study partner!

Enjoy the read!

Featured Community post from the Discord

Blam just created a video summarizer called VideoSum. It works for videos of any length and provides well-organized summaries that extract key concepts, highlights, keywords, channel information, and other relevant data from videos and shorts. It works on all videos, and the summaries are expandable as well. Check it out here and support a fellow community member. Share your thoughts or questions in the thread!
