    All this AI photo generation is leading me to think that all imagery is going to be essentially meaningless. Is it real? Is it fake? Did a bot make it, or a human? As this tech continues to grow, i will be studying every image i come across while i ask myself those questions subconsciously.

    I mean on one hand, you can “see” almost anything you can type out descriptively enough. Pretty neat! But now virtually anything can be “seen” which includes things that shouldn’t be this easy to show. I’m thinking propaganda, deepfakes, blatantly making up fake news with imagery and video to back it all up. I guess we were always headed in this direction one way or another.

        Even those people who have difficulties with imagining something visually can use AI image generators somehow. As long as they can write and understand what a sentence means, they can use any sentence as a prompt to get a calculated image. You don’t need any artistic talent or phantasy to get started with creating basic artificial images. That’s exactly why artists around the world feel their skills are now being devalued by AI generators.

      The upside of generative AI better be no less than an end to toil because in the short run, they’re going to ruin the internet and prompt several genocides.
