AI art is borderline unethical because its existence in our current economic system means that it _will_ be used to replace ppl and threathen their livelihood. As if artists aren't already treated as commodities 😬
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".
