Why Does AI Art Look Like a '70s Prog-Rock Album Cover? | WIRED - 0 views

  •  
    "Will this AI take jobs from artists? Where does copyright law land? Can machines ever truly produce something original? Should I feel guilty for making a picture of Tony Soprano having a cappuccino with Shrek and sharing it with my group chat?"

The inherent misogyny of AI portraits - Amelia Earhart rendered naked on a bed | US new... - 0 views

  •  
    ""Is it just me or are these AI selfie generator apps perpetuating misogyny?" tweeted Brandee Barker, a feminist and advocate who has worked in the tech industry. "Here are a few I got just based off of photos of my face." One of Barker's results showed her wearing supermodel-length hair extensions and a low-cut catsuit. Another featured her in a white bra with cleavage spilling out from the top."

    "Prisma Labs has already gotten into trouble for accidentally generating nude and cartoonishly sexualised images - including those of children - despite a "no nudes" and "adults only" policy. Prisma Lab's CEO and co-founder Andrey Usoltsev told TechCrunch this behaviour only happened if the AI was intentionally provoked to create this type of content - which represents a breach of terms against its use. "If an individual is determined to engage in harmful behavior, any tool would have the potential to become a weapon," he said."

Incoherent, creepy and gorgeous: we asked six leading artists to make work using AI - a... - 0 views

  •  
    "Until recently, I was deeply sceptical of the idea of AI art. I saw it as hype and casuistry, and with some cause: widely publicised efforts such as Ai-Da the robot artist obviously exaggerate the independence of the machine and play on our fascination with sentient artificial beings. But now the dream is coming true, at least in art. And art is surely one of the most inimitable expressions of the human mind."

When AI can make art - what does it mean for creativity? | Artificial intelligence (AI)... - 0 views

    "Some are outraged at what they consider theft of their artistic trademark. Greg Rutkowski, a concept artist and illustrator well known for his golden-light infused epic fantasy scenes, has already been mentioned in hundreds of thousands of prompts used across Midjourney and Stable Diffusion. "It's been just a month. What about in a year? I probably won't be able to find my work out there because [the internet] will be flooded with AI art," Rutkowski told MIT Technology Review. "That's concerning.""

Brian Eno on Why He Wrote a Climate Album With Deepfake Birdsongs | WIRED - 0 views

  •  
    "Oh, I just listen to bird sounds a lot and then try to emulate the kinds of things they do. Synthesizers are quite good at that because some of the new software has what's called physical modeling. This enables you to construct a physical model of something and then stretch the parameters. You can create a piano with 32-foot strings, for instance, or a piano made of glass. It's a very interesting way to try to study the world, to try to model it. In the natural world there are discrete entities like clarinets, saxophones, drums. With physical modeling, you can make hybrids like a drummy piano or a saxophone-y violin. There's a continuum, most of which has never been explored."

From Trump Nevermind babies to deep fakes: DALL-E and the ethics of AI art | Artificial... - 0 views

  •  
    ""We are seeing deep fakes being used all the time, and the technology is going to allow still images, but ultimately also video images, to be synthesised [more easily] by bad actors," he says. DALL-E has content policy rules in place that prohibit bullying, harassment, the creation of sexual or political content, or creating images of people without their consent. And while Open AI has limited the number of people who can sign up to DALL-E, its lower-grade replica, DALL-E mini, is open access, meaning people can produce anything they want."

    "Simon Stålenhag, the Swedish illustrator whose Tales from the Loop has become an Amazon Prime original, is one. On Wednesday, he found that one of his artworks had been turned into a "MarbleCard", a type of NFT that allows users to make and trade tokens representing web pages. "I guess we must do a daily google if we've been NFT:d from now on," he said. "Thanks Silicon Valley!""

AI as Scientist, AI as Artist | 3 Quarks Daily - 0 views

  •  
    "Consider abstract art. We've noted that machine learning, in aiming to make an accurate prediction, constructs a high-dimensional feature space that contorts and reconfigures the data representing features of the natural world. Likewise, artists "mash and rip" features of visual reality to create a system of forms, texture, and color that richly represent features of visual experience in an alien way. The subject of representation is abstracted but represented none-the-less. "

  •  
    "As part of her undergraduate research, Alice Xue studied whether a machine could pass a Visual Turing Test by producing images that people cannot tell were made by a machine. Xue trained an algorithm using 2,192 traditional Chinese landscape paintings collected from art museums. The resulting AI-generated paintings were mistaken for being made by humans 55 per cent of the time."

Creative Adversarial Networks: GANs that make art / Boing Boing - 0 views

    "The underlying theory is that art evolves "through small alterations to a known style that produce a new one," which, as Ian Bogost (previously) points out, is "a convenient take, given that any machine-learning technique has to base its work on a specific training set.""
