Digital Artists Are Pushing Back Against AI, Verity Babbs, δημοσίευση στο Hyperallergic [7/3/2023]Marilena Pateraki
Using the hashtag “No to AI Art,” artists protest AI image generators’ use of their work without permission or compensation.
In December of last year, variations on a simple image — a general prohibition symbol crossing through the word AI with “NO TO AI GENERATED IMAGES” beneath it — began popping up on my Instagram feed. I had just written my last piece for Hyperallergic, looking at Artificial Intelligence’s capacity to relay and become part of art history, and I realized that the interviews I had conducted for the article had all been with pro-AI voices. I had not spoken to the group being hurt at the hands of AI image generation: digital artists. The recent popularization of AI software such as OpenAI’s DALL-E 2 and ChatGPT has made AI the topic of the moment. AI-generated images, from quirky profile pictures showing users as fantasy characters, to reimaginings of famous works from art history, were popping up everywhere, and questions about the technology’s future use and current methods quickly grew. When an advert for AI copywriting service “Jasper” came up on my feed, I, too, became concerned about the future security of my work as a writer in an ever-technologically advancing landscape.
AI art is generated using software now readily available to online audiences such as DeepAI, DeepDream, and OpenAI’s DALL-E 2. These programs have been trained to create images from text prompts, using millions of pairs of images and captions from the internet to “‘learn” from, and becoming more accurate at the process with every interaction. The images used in the datasets are publicly available on the internet, but Getty Images has started its legal proceedings against Stability AI for breach of IP rights, and other lawsuits are brewing.
