Day two of playing with the text-to-image AI called MidJourney, and I have another thought to share. What will this technology bring to the future of creativity and copyright?
One of these is a photograph I took, and the other is an AI generated image based of a vague description that I gave the AI. Something like, “A large black feather stuck in the sand at a beach at sunset, photograph, telephoto, shallow depth of field.”
If you look closely you can probably tell what is my photo and what is computer generated, but they are damn close, and as AI advances, who knows if anyone will be able to tell real from fake. Maybe in a year? In five? It’s going to be insane.
