Of course the money is all that matters.

Have you ever seen a photographer that felt guilty for putting portrait painters out of business?

New tech comes along and it is up to you to choose to whine and play victim or harvest the new possibilities and reinvent yourself.

I love ai and look forward to making more money.

There are microstockers who were able to produce quality images and did not had to wait for AI to achieve that.

They were happy about the money they made from their OWN work. And they knew they had to improve and work by themselves. And they did. And they evolved.
AI = easy money? lol, wait just a few months... These words will only be spoken by the fulfilled big mouths of the big agencies managers and shareholder ;D

Wait for the nexts "hey, we have good news!!!"  :D

only the anti-ai luddites have said its easy money - of course there are thousands of artists producing quality work - just like those portrait painters, film photographers, buggy whip makers, mom & pop grocery stores, small book sellers. but most of those who don't adapt cease to evolve & natural selection moves along

You all keep making the same arguments while completely confusing  simple technology with AI. these are two completely different things. Technology itself was never a threat to humaity or creativity. AI can replace almost everything that makes humans human, espect for the biological part.

AWB, auto focus, auto exposure, auto ISO, programming, the only part a human has to do is push the button. No film, no processing, a digital photo can be edited down to pixels. Auto levels, color correction, sharpen or blur, much more including making parts that never existed, shadows and lighting. Digital images can replace almost everything that makes a human taking photo.

Not what I said, not my point at all. Taking a photo is not what makes humans human.

Maybe AI creators are slowly coming to their senses (or they are forced to think twice): "The letter, issued by the non-profit Future of Life Institute and signed by more than 1,000 people including Musk, called for a pause on advanced AI development until shared safety protocols for such designs were developed, implemented and audited by independent experts."

Will they "regulate" Chinese AI too? Which will gain leverage during the "pause"?

What AI would you rather submit to? English-speaking or Chinese-speaking? :P

It all is rather scary indeed :)

Frankly, I don't care much more for USA than China regarding this issue.

midjourney temporarily halts free image trial

https://www.pcworld.com/article/1677533/midjourney-halts-free-trials-after-ai-photos-go-viral.html

Do not understand what the "AI-generated fake images that went viral" have to do with the free trial. It's not like the paid subscription will keep you from generating "fake images" - After all that's the whole point of midjourney.

sure....
and expert economists have predicted nine of the last 7 recessions

and a few 'expert' biologists refuse to accept evolution

and rightwing experts refuse to accept climate change

Uhm, okay? I still do not understand what that has  to do with Midjourney stopping their free trial?

Liberals invented Climate Change! Global warming wasn't selling fear as well as predicted, but the planet is positively warming. Even the deniers can't deny that.

But nothing to really worry about, doom or expert predictions: Steven Hawking says - artificial intelligence is likely to outsmart us, that the wealthy are bound to develop into a superhuman species, and that the planet is hurtling toward total inhabitability.

"There's an expert .. who says that if there is not an indefinite pause on AI development ... 'Literally everyone on Earth will die,'"

Yes at least some of us can get a joke when it's posted. I'll add that everyone on Earth will die. Eventually? But there will be replacements, (aka descendants) who will also eventually get old and die.  ;D

Liberals invented Climate Change, talk about deniers of the facts. If a dire prediction doesn't go the way they want, they just change the model. That happens year after year, because the predictions haven't met the levels of doom that are claimed

This may help you. But probably not.

Could we perhaps move the climate change discussion/politics into a different thread?

I would like to continue using this thread for collecting useful links and articles about generative ai.

THANK YOU.
