I see this being used as a tool to help generate concepts to build from, that said I think that it will also destroy anyone creating in the midtier space. for instance, any artist that makes paintings/photos that go in hotels/private homes will probably be edged out of work if they havent already.
You can see the effects of AI in news/journalism. I suspect they are responsible for most clickbait new stories that we are fed. I'm not sure if I've mentioned this but there have been countless times where I have clicked a news article from a big news corp only to find that the article has absolutely nothing to do with the headline.
I'm fairly certain AI has been getting used in the youtube space alot too for reviewing products/pushing affiliate links. The scripts, Vo, etc are all generated with ai and fill with product shots.
I'm considering using ai to rework my resume/website copy and coverletters for the next time I switch jobs.
I would really like to think this is how people felt when the camera came along but its so much more than that.
I know that there will be artist that try to build things that confuse AI but I'm wondering if the next step will be not allowing their work to be photographed at all in order to ensure their exculsitivity. I remember seeing a fashion documentary that talked about how with clothing, designers could copyright a design but after it gets made into a piece of clothing, it was fair game to rip it off. There was a shoe designer that started making shoes that were cost prohibitive to be duplicated cheaply. I think he made really thin heels for womens shoes out of a really expensive/strong metal. I remember asking myself if he was really designing for design or just designing to not be copied at that point. In someways I understand what hes working against but also I think about the limits hes now placed on himself.
@MercerI 100% agree with you on the moms credit card. at a certain point, keeping it real just becomes stupid when theres a much better product to use that yields better results with less effort.
heres more random, low effort MidJourney. I've got an unlimited account for a bit, if anyone wants to throw out some prompts, I'm happy to share the results but fair warning, it does not allow for certain terms (NSFW,gore,etc)
