(Warning: some creepy/gross images follow)
People who don’t have a good grounding in how neural networks work find things like this phenomenon more meaningful than it is. Along with language and math literacy we need to be teaching people machine learning literacy and getting the word “intelligence” out of the vernacular when describing machine learning/neural networks.
ML/NN’s: Powerful technology we need to be cautious about? YES, same as nuclear power. Somehow deeply meaningful, tapping into something more than an absorption of what humans have generated and posted to the internet? NO.
I’ve studied Computing at degree level and had a career in digital art and photography for nearly 30 plus years. In that period of time l haven’t seen the advent of any kind of sentient Ai (it’s all a myth to sell new tech to the consumer). A form of interesting yet basic Ai exists in the gaming world (any major break throughs in Ai development will be in this area)🤔
"AI Illustrator"? FML . I've spent 40 years perfecting my craft and learning how to draw, compose, render images that convey stories and themes and now over the last two years, suddenly that's meaningless because somebody is using keywords on a high tech collage app.
Anyone else notice that most of this "art" has a lot of similarities to art made by psychopaths and serial killers? If that is a guide for if and when AI actually does gain sentience, if ever, humanity is screwed.
The images are reminiscent of the 80s TV show "Spitting Image"
I wasn’t surprised by the imagery generated. The lighting on Loab’s face makes her look like she could be dead to an unsophisticated AI that can’t ascertain that the lighting is poor and the person just has inflammation not blood on her face. And adding a celestial picture implies death. So now the AI generator knows this is about death and gives macabre pictures of dead people that resemble Loab. AI isn’t very smart.
man i do not like where we are headed as a species with AI at all
AI meets Ozzie!
