Thoughts on the AI question

Art is three things:
1. The production of beauty.
2. The intersubjective transmission of feelings or ideas.
3. The intraspecies' competitive pursue of craftsmanship.

1. In this sense, yes artificial intelligence will replace us.

2. However, a machine isn't sentient, hence it can't transmit human feelings or thoughts. In the second sense, machines fail to do art.

3. Human competition. It has to be intraspecific, so inside of the human species. For instance, nobody wants to see chess GMs compete versus chess engines, or runners go up against cheetahs. Hence, the idea that a machine can perform better art is inconsecuential to the idea of art as craftsmanship or raw skill, since all pride in our skills is measured relative to other humans.
