AI can replicate intelligence, but not art

AI can replicate intelligence, but not art

Xavi Villarreal, Sports Editor | January 10, 2024
Artificial intelligence or AI taking over the world has been a fascinating subject many storytellers have employed in order to entertain thousands, if not millions, of people for years, if not decades.
