ABSTRACT

I'm from Rajasthan, India and am currently studying in Singapore. My journey has woven through the bustling streets of Delhi as well. At the heart of my story is a love for technology and the fascinating ways it is shaping our psychology.

I'm currently building StoryLine AI (backed by NTU SEP), KamaGPT (backed by NTU SIE), Pl{ai}ground and working on my YouTube channel where I make videos on tech, vlogs, and higher education.

In addition to my technical pursuits, I'm deeply interested in Indian and international politics. And a big time Bollywood fan.

Aren't you confused if I am Yash Chopra or Yash Jain? Well, I am both. "Chopra" is my root surname, and "Jain" is the religion I follow. I use "Jain" for official purposes.

I. Introduction

"Build and Govern universes, spell down by the artistry of painting my imagination in an alive space. I sought my peace in the art that gave me the power of being the generator, operator, and destroyer god of my own world." ~Yash Jain

The realms of AI and artistic expression have merged, creating a captivating synergy that transcends mere computational processes. At the heart of this amalgamation is the concept of latent space in generative AI, where universes are born from data and imagination. This exploration delves into the fascinating interplay between AI, artistry, and Hindu philosophy.

This narrative embodies our journey, drawing connections between the creative potential of generative AI, the art of imagination, and the profound concepts of creation, preservation, and destruction in Hindu philosophy.

II. Literature Review

The landscape of this field is diverse, spanning studies on generative AI models like GANs and transformers, as well as the philosophy and mythology of Hinduism. Previous works have examined generative AI as a tool for artistic expression, often emphasizing the role of latent space in creating new realities. Scholars have also delved into Hindu deities, such as Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva, symbolizing creation, preservation, and destruction, offering insights into the cyclical nature of existence to illuminate the nexus of these themes, bridging the artistic, philosophical, and technical facets.

III. Discussion

Universe, Alive Space, and World in the Context of Latent Space:
The notion of "universes" finds resonance in the concept of latent space in generative AI. This abstract, multi-dimensional realm serves as the heart of AI's creative potential, encoding meaningful internal representations of externally observed events. In essence, it's akin to how our minds distill complex experiences into concise forms.

Spell, Painting, and Imagination in Context of Prompts:
"spell," "painting," and "imagination" refers to the interaction between human creators and AI models. The "spell" represents the prompts; natural language commands given to these models, akin to an incantation that initiates the artistic process. The "painting" manifests through the model's generation of art, translating abstract ideas into tangible creations. "Imagination" signifies the shared creative space where AI and human ingenuity unite, giving life to novel artistic expressions.

Generator, Operator, and Destroyer:
These line's allusion to the Hindu trinity of gods, Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva, corresponds to the creative process in AI. AI models can be viewed as creators (generators), operators who refine and curate output, and sometimes even as destroyers when their work evolves or gets destroyed in favor of a new creation like diffusion models.

IV. Conclusion

In conclusion, the fusion of AI, artistry, and Hindu philosophy unveils a captivating tapestry of interconnected ideas. The latent space in generative AI becomes a canvas for imagination, guided by spell-like prompts, empowering creators to be the gods of their own worlds, mirroring the divine roles of creation, preservation, and destruction found in Hindu mythology. Understanding this synthesis enriches our comprehension of AI's creative potential and offers profound insights into the ancient wisdom of Hindu philosophy. As we navigate this uncharted territory, we stand on the cusp of forging new creative universes, where the boundaries between art, technology, and spirituality blur, beckoning us to explore the limitless frontiers of human and machine imagination.
