You can give a robot a paintbrush, but can it create art?

I believe art is unique to conscious minds. So, the short answer is NO!

But, think about it, sometimes the art is also what you make out of it. I look into my son's scabble, and see some nice shapes in it. He did not create those shapes intentionally, but still, they resemble some weird abstract reflection of things that I could never draw intentionally. Some of the times, the guided line drawings lead to more failures than the free hand flow of an "un-artist". Can we define them as art? Probably, NO? Its open to interpretations.

Well, try this test at buzzfeed:
Did you pass with more than 60% success rate?

Now, if a robot is given a paintbrush and allowed to paint; Can you expect an art to come out of it?
Well, how about we put two modern arts sideways and lie to you that both came from one of the  upcoming/super talented artist?

Well, studies have suggested that you could tell the difference...

So, the answer still seems to be a NO!
Give it some time, may be the statement will change to affirmation in the future.
