“To the human eye, the Glazed image still looks like her work, but the computer-learning model would pick up on something very different. It’s similar to a tool the University of Chicago team previously created to protect photos from facial recognition systems.
When Ms. Ortiz posted her Glazed work online, an image generator trained on those images wouldn’t be able to mimic her work. A prompt with her name would instead lead to images in some hybridized style of her works and Pollock’s.
“We’re taking our consent back,” Ms. Ortiz said. A.I.-generating tools, many of which charge users a fee to generate images, “have data that doesn’t belong to them,” she said. “That data is my artwork, that’s my life. It feels like my identity.”
The team at the University of Chicago admitted that their tool does not guarantee protection and could lead to countermeasures by anyone committed to emulating a particular artist. “We’re pragmatists,” Professor Zhao said. “We recognize the likely long delay before law and regulations and policies catch up. This is to fill that void.””
“Why are –seeds useful in MJ? Using the same prompt + seed in MJ v4 (the current default) will produce identical images. This is VERY useful when building a prompt, b/c it lets you visualize the impact of any addition/change you make (like here, with lighting)”
“Nous avons demandé à trois Intelligences Artificielles (DALL.E, MIDJOUNEY & STABLE DIFFUSION) de générer des images. Laurence DEVILLER, Professeure en informatique et IA à la Sorbonne Université, et Albertine MEUNIER, Artiste Numérique et Chevalier de la Légion, d’Honneur-sauront elles les différencier d’oeuvres humaines ?”
“DALL·E’s Edit feature already enables changes within a generated or uploaded image — a capability known as Inpainting. Now, with Outpainting, users can extend the original image, creating large-scale images in any aspect ratio. Outpainting takes into account the image’s existing visual elements — including shadows, reflections, and textures — to maintain the context of the original image.”
“RJ Palmer, who specializes in drawing fantastical creatures and worked as a concept artist on the movie Detective Pikachu, says curiosity drove him to try out DALL-E 2—but he also became a little nervous about what such AI tools might mean for his profession. Later, he was shocked to see users of open source image generator Stable Diffusion swapping tips on generating art in different styles by adding artists’ names to a text prompt. “When they’re feeding work from living, working artists who are, you know, struggling as it is, that’s just mean-spirited,””
