Botto: A Decentralized Autonomous Artist
Mario Klingeman · Simon Hudson · Ziv Epstein
Botto is an experiment in creating a decentralized autonomous artist that generates art based on community feedback. Every week, Botto creates and sells artwork via a series of models and crowdsourced community evaluations of over 3,000people who also decide how to manage the artist and its sales. We present a formal description of how Botto works and its implications for creative machine learning.
