WASHINGTON, DC. February 27, 2017 – Cloudpainter, a collaborative project in partnership with Full Visibility which combines data science with art to enable a robot to create its own original compositions and artwork, was one of eleven submissions shortlisted for the first-ever Elastic Cause Awards.
The awards program, launched by Elastic, the company behind popular open source projects such as Elasticsearch, Kibana, Beats, and Logstash, is part of “an ever-expanding philanthropic mission vital to its company culture – according to the company’s website.
“This is thrilling for us to have our project idea be recognized as both ‘game-changing’ and ‘impactful’, said Pindar Van Arman, creator of cloudpainter and member of the FV project team. “I’ve always maintained that everything is data – even art...Elasticsearch has elevated this technology’s potential by enabling the robot to not just paint – but add layers of complexity similar to human functioning that can simulate a specific artistic style and even develop its 'own' creative art”.
Nominees were selected from a global community of Elasticsearch users who, according to the award’s criteria, were ‘user-community projects that use the Elastic Stack to advance the human condition, improve the global environment or help a particular population in need.’
