AI Based Art…The New Frontier?

Christie’s just announced that it sold it’s first AI-Based painting for $432,000! The algorithm analyzed over 15,000 portrait paintings in order to come up with this final piece. For me, I think that this poses an interesting question as to whether or not the artist matters for a piece of art. As we use AI in a larger portion of our lives, does AI art have as much value as something crafted by hand?
