In his book “The Inevitable” Kevin Kelly talks about artificial intelligence and how it will combine all human knowledge, thereby showing the white spaces where humanity has not yet gained knowledge. AI will show us what we do not know.

So AI could show us what has not been painted too. It will be very exciting to see how, for example, seascapes were not painted yet or which themes and subjects completely escaped the gaze of artists. I think we need a lot a white canvas to fill the white spaces we have.
