The Power of Using AI for Generating Art
As someone who is fascinated by the intersection of art and technology, I’ve been closely following the development of AI-generated art over the last couple of years. For those who may not be familiar, AI-generated art is exactly what it sounds like – art that is created using artificial intelligence.
The concept of using AI for artistic creation is not new – early AI systems were used to create music and visual art as far back as the 1950s. However, recent advances in machine learning and other techniques have led to the development of more sophisticated AI systems that are capable of creating truly impressive works of art.
Current State of the Field
There are many benefits to using AI for artistic creation. For one, it allows for the creation of unique and varied works of art that would be difficult or impossible for a human artist to build on their own. It also has the potential to democratize the art-making process by removing the need for traditional artistic skills.
Many different techniques and technologies are being used to create AI-generated art today, such as machine learning, neural networks, and generative adversarial networks (GANs). One of the most well-known examples of AI-generated art is the work of artist Trevor Jones, who uses machine learning to create stunning abstract paintings. With explosion prompt image platforms like Midjourney, I don’t see how this is not something any new artist would not embrace. I will be posting a video with some off prompts images that I have come across on Midjourney and working on a few Youtube videos on how to use it as a total beginner on the platform.
Of course, using AI in art is not without its ethical considerations. Some people argue that AI-generated art is not “real” art. In contrast, others believe that it has the potential to democratize the art world and make it more accessible to people who may not have traditional artistic skills. If I were a conventional artist taking the time to learn the art form, I would be a little upset about how this tech could change everything for me. With that said, I will be using it for inspiration and building off of it. I will finish with the fact that this is just an inevitable part of life when tech catches up; you either embrace it or be left behind.
AI has the potential to be a transformative force in the creative industries. As AI systems continue to evolve and improve, I’m excited to see what new and innovative works of art they can create. Of course, whether or not AI-generated art is considered “real” art is ultimately up for debate. Still, one thing is sure – it is a fascinating and rapidly-evolving field worth paying attention to, and I will not run away from this new technology.
