You will learn...
AI art generation refers to the use of artificial intelligence to create new artwork. Using text that you input (also called a prompt), an AI art generator will take that text and create a brand-new, never before seen image in seconds. You can then add these images to your projects to make personalized amazing projects!
Isn't using AI Art stealing from other artists?
AI art-making models are a tool and it is completely within your power to use this tool ethically or unethically. I will teach you how to use this tool ethically in my workshop and you will not be generating any AI art that either steals or plagiarizes from any other artist. I will also teach you how to share your creations ethically as well. AI Art is new and already changing the future of art, but it's also here to stay and we need to adapt to this new tool and environment in the most ethical way possible. I can help you do this!
How do you teach the ethical use of AI art?
I believe in teaching the principles of axiomatic alignment in AI, and making sure that advanced AI systems act in accordance with ethical principles and objectives. I also support the GATO framework, which is a global, decentralized movement to advance the principles of axiomatic alignment in AI. The GATO framework empowers individuals to get involved in AI safety and alignment, and to harmonize AI with human values, for a positive future.
In this workshop, I will teach how to create prompts and generate artwork that is not based on or mimicking any one artist's work, and then how to share it transparently, as well as what to avoid doing with AI art, such as selling the digital designs. I'll also discuss using AI art generators trained on Adobe Stock images, openly licensed content, and public domain content during our ethics lesson. Please note that AI Art is an evolving field, and the idea of what is and is not ethical is evolving right alongside it, so I'm going to do our best to teach what I feel are the best practices, and those practices may change over time. I will not impose my personal morality on anyone, but I will give you the information I have so you can do what you feel is right as we move forward in this new medium.
I've heard that AI art has the potential to wipe out all original and human created art. Do you think this is true?
No, I don't think this is even remotely true. Having been online since 1991, before the general public had access to the web, I've seen a great deal of change in my professional career. This type of reactionary thinking is in response to rapid change and comes from a place of fear and scarcity, rather than a place of abundance. When Photoshop came out, many people thought it might mean the end of photography or original photos. This has not been even remotely the case. If anything, photography and image generation has exploded as a result. Photoshop is a tool, and there are always those who prefer to just take and make images in more traditional ways. This will be true of art going forward as well — there will always be those who prefer to create art in other ways, whether with a pen or brush in hand or with digital (non-AI) tools. AI art generators are nothing more than a tool that we can use to expand our creativity and output, to go further and do more.... just like nearly every other tool in the history of human culture. I believe in embracing these changes and learning to use the tools, rather than fear them, and I encourage you to do the same.
