Exploring the Potential of AI Art: A Game-Changer in the Art World?
By Jeff Bullas
At the beginning of 2023, Getty Images filed a case against Stability AI. They alleged that the company copied 12 million images to train its AI art model ‘without permission … or compensation’.
Is art created by AI about to have its day in court? Maybe a future cut short?
Why art created by AI matters
Generative AI can seem complex (it’s the Artificial Intelligence technology at the heart of ChatGPT), but at its core, it uses software to scrape data on the Internet (art, images and text). The AI then learns from the content created by humans and recombines it into something we have never seen before.
And the humans are fighting back.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been advancing rapidly, and its impact on the world of art has been no exception. AI art is the use of machine learning algorithms and other AI technologies to create artwork. It is a relatively new field that has gained popularity in recent years, and its potential for creativity and innovation is enormous.
But there’s a challenge in AI using artists’ and photographers’ creations in its training.
So…AI art is cool but murky.
There is no attribution.
So maybe there will be some retribution.
And that is already happening.
In the news
Microsoft, GitHub and OpenAI are currently being sued in a class action motion that accuses them of violating copyright law by allowing Copilot, a code-generating AI system trained on billions of lines of public code, to regurgitate licensed code snippets without providing credit.
What is AI art?
AI art is created using algorithms that have been trained to recognize patterns and generate original content based on those patterns.
There are several types:
- Generative art, which involves the use of algorithms to create an endless number of unique images (that are an AI regeneration of originals)
- Interactive art is created using sensors and other technology to allow the viewer to interact with the artwork.
One of the most significant benefits of AI art is that it allows artists to explore new creative avenues that would otherwise be impossible. By leveraging the power of machine learning and other AI technologies, artists can create artwork that is completely unique and innovative.
This can be particularly valuable for artists who are looking to break free from traditional artistic conventions and explore new ways of expressing themselves.
The 4 best AI art tools
There are many AI art tools available today, each with its unique features and capabilities. Here are some of the best tools that artists can use to create stunning AI-generated artwork:
This tool was created by Google and uses a neural network to generate images that are surreal and dream-like.
Users can select a base image and then tweak various parameters to create unique and original images.
ArtBreeder allows users to create a vast array of unique images using a variety of different algorithms.
Users can mix and match different images and styles to create something truly original.
This tool allows users to transfer the style of one image to another image, creating a unique and original piece of art.
Users can select from a variety of different styles and adjust various parameters to fine-tune their artwork.
This tool allows artists to experiment with a wide range of different AI algorithms, including generative models, image recognition models, and natural language processing models.
Users can create interactive installations, generative music, and much more.
They use AI to turn any image, video clip or text prompt into a compelling piece of film.
The future of art
As AI technology continues to advance, the future of art looks incredibly promising. Here are some of the ways that AI is likely to shape the future of art:
New creative opportunities
As AI technology becomes more sophisticated, it will open up new creative opportunities for artists. With the ability to generate completely unique and original artwork, artists will be able to explore new artistic avenues that were previously inaccessible.
Interactive art has already become a popular form of AI-generated art, and this trend is likely to continue. With the use of sensors and other technology, artists can create artwork that responds to the viewer’s movements, making for a more engaging and immersive experience.
As AI technology becomes more widespread, it will become increasingly possible for artists to create artwork that is tailored to the individual viewer. By leveraging data analytics and other AI tools, artists can create art that is customized to the viewer’s preferences, making for a more personal and meaningful experience.
AI technology also has the potential to facilitate collaborative art projects on a global scale. With the ability to connect artists from all over the world, AI could make it easier for artists to collaborate and create truly unique and groundbreaking works of art.
Wrapping it up
AI art is a rapidly evolving field that has the potential to revolutionize the world of art as we know it. By leveraging the power of machine learning and other AI technologies, artists can create artwork that is completely unique, innovative, and breathtaking.
As AI technology continues to advance, it will be exciting to see how artists continue to explore and play with the tech and their creativity.
