I'm screaming at a wall because it seems like the "goal" of AI art is to remove the human in the process to make it "more efficient" so humans who already do art rn are seen as commodities.
It's the same shit as Uber underpaying drivers bc it wants to remove them long term.
And I'm not even touching on the part where AI art/audio/video, like deepfakes before them will enable even more sophisticated misinformation. Ppl can barely be bothered to check if a Twitter screenshot is true, imagine that w/ realistic enough pictures generated by the hundreds.
In a fucked up way we're "lucky" the last two years of Covid misinformation didn't happen when AI art was good enough to produce photographic "evidence".
