I am wondering if our sensibility to images will change with the rise of AI made imagery. Could it be similar to our relationship to handcrafted object / machine made object? Or maybe something more radical, like a wish for some of us to ignore / ban AI made graphics? That last scenario would require some tagging mechanism. Except DALL-E 2 signature (colored squares in the bottom right corner), I don’t know if any tagging / metadata exists yet.
@raphael If you consider the similarities to stock footage (photography / illustration) or fiverrrr in terms of types of images produced and the economies behind it I think the longer term attitudes will be fairly similar. It doesn't matter if the creator is an AI or an underpaid clickworker. In a way this is a further automation / deskilling of an already faux-tomated industry.
@rra That’s right. But instead of underpaid workers, AI generators could automatically tag creations more easily, both because it is easy to do technically, but also because the border between AI-made / human made and Well paid / underpaid is more clear (hm, is it really…)
