this has been one of my biggest worries, especially as AI generated services become utilised as a cost cutting tool
The thing is AI generated art doesn't need to be perfect for it to be dangerous to artist's livelihoods. All they need it to do to lessen the value of art--of artists--and that's exactly what it's doing. That's what's profitable.

there really is no reason for people to take this tweet in bad faith. this app is jarring man.
I hate to see it, but I am glad that we are realising that we do not have any actual spaces in this country for Black people by Black people. Everybody benefits from the things that we do but we never get to have them as a safe space or refuge at all. This is intentional.

It's sad that many working artists see it this way, I wish AI art communities / organizations would do more to uplift / center / prioritizes uses of AI art that lead to 1) creating original work 2) grow the size of the art economy 3) celebrate and direct support to our elders
Replying to @ihaveeczema
it's just funny that this, along with so many other recent "tech innovations" in arts (and a lot of other spaces!), is just tech guys inserting themselves as middlemen so that they can passively take a monetary cut from people trying to live as human beings

A new AI image generator appears to be capable of making art that looks 100% human made. As an artist I am extremely concerned.

the quality of defending in the bundesliga is so bad
I think that ppl need to stop buying into things that sound too good to be true, bc they most likely are. I’ve had so many ppl think they can go work at these major companies bc they finished 1 certification, and when I break the news that that’s not enough, they ghost me😂
I hate how twitter pretends everyone can get a 6 fig job just by lying on their application or taking fake ass courses yall sell. Most people don't see 6 figures in their LIFE but somehow everyone on here has the answers.

Wellcome and anti-racism update: In June 2020, Wellcome publicly recognised that it had perpetuated racism and pledged to tackle racism as an organisation. Unfortunately, we’ve fallen short of the commitments we made. 1/10
