Neural Network had a great impact on Artificial Intelligence and nowadays the Deep Learning algorithms are widely used to extract knowledge from huge amount of data. This thesis aims to revisit the evolution of Deep Learning from the origins till the current state-of-art by focusing on a particular prospective. The main question we try to answer is: can AI exhibit artistic abilities comparable to the human ones? Recovering the definition of the Turing Test, we propose a similar formulation of the concept, indeed, we would like to test the machine's ability to exhibit artistic behaviour equivalent to, or indistinguishable from, that of a human. The argument we will analyze as a support for this debate is an interesting and innovative idea coming from the field of Deep Learning, known as Generative Adversarial Network (GAN). GAN is basically a system composed of two neural network fighting each other in a zero-sum game. The ''bullets'' fired during this challenge are simply images generated by one of the two networks. The interesting part in this scenario is that, with a proper system design and training, after several iteration these fake generated images start to become more and more closer to the ones we see in the reality, making indistinguishable what is real from what is not. We will talk about some real anecdotes around GANs to spice up even more the discussion generated by the question previously posed and we will present some recent real world application based on GANs to emphasize their importance also in term of business. We will conclude with a practical experiment over an Amazon catalogue of clothing images and reviews with the aim of generating new never seen product starting from the most popular existing ones.
