Exploring the Possibilities of AI-Powered Creative Arts: What's Next for Artists Now?
"It’s daunting to think that everyone who makes art for a living can be replaced by zeros and ones imitating creativity"
The development of artificial intelligence (AI) has been both exciting and intimidating for many people. On one hand, AI offers the potential to create new opportunities for creative expression and art. On the other hand, there is a fear that AI will replace human creativity and artistic talent. It is important to understand the impact of AI on creative arts so that we can better prepare ourselves for the future. There’s a fear of change that comes with introducing new technology into our lives but the advancement of technology will slow down for no one. We must learn how to address this new technology in a constructive way so we can work with it, not against it.
AI is changing the way we create art and expanding possibilities for artists. Previously, it was a process to create unique, complex works of art without a great deal of time and effort. AI technology can produce beautiful pieces of art quickly and more efficiently than the average artist now though. It can pull data from multiple sources, interpret it, and use the information it processes to design new creative pieces.
AI-generated artwork can be used in a variety of ways, such as creating digital posters, logos, illustrations, and even 3D models. With its ability to process vast amounts of data quickly and accurately, AI is able to create art that is more detailed and intricate than ever before but where does that leave artist who make a living from creating? It’s daunting to think that everyone who makes art for a living can be replaced by zeros and ones imitating creativity.
When AI creates a visual piece, the process usually starts with it selecting an image or set of images as the basis for the painting/piece. The algorithm will then analyze this image to determine its color palette, composition, and other elements that will be used in the painting. After this, it will use various techniques such as neural networks to generate a unique painting based on these inputs. Finally, it will refine the painting until it is complete and ready to be shared with others.
Artists are vulnerable to exploitation by visual AI art, because their art can be stolen and sold without their permission or compensation currently during this process. Laws and legislation must be put in place to protect artists from being robbed by visual AI art. These laws should include measures such as setting a fair cost for making art, creating legal protections for artists against apps and AI that commit copyright infringement, and ensuring that artists receive fair compensation for the use of their work. By protecting the rights of artists with these laws, we can ensure that they are not taken advantage of by this new untamed technology that is honestly exploiting hem for profit. This is the only way the profession of art making will survive.
In a perfect world, artist would work in harmony with AI to make art using only their own style and techniques. They could train an AI with their unique style and allow the AI to produce pieces strictly based on their own talent and designs. By using AI-generated paintings and design, artists could create beautiful works of art in their own style without having to worry about traditional artistic processes like sketching out ideas or blending colors together. It would allow artist exceedingly more time to strengthen their style and artistic voice and increase their productivity. This raises questions about how this will impact the cost of making art and how it might affect the livelihoods of traditional artists but that goes back to the need of effective legislation again.
AI definitely is changing the way we look at visual art as a whole, since it automates many things, but it also is allowing us to explore new possibilities and push boundaries in ways we never thought possible. We don’t have a smooth and easy road ahead, but artist who want to keep their profession will have to learn how to be compete and outperform AI in the areas where it is weakest. It’s true that AI will reduce the costs associated with creating art by eliminating labor costs associated with manual production processes. It will also cause the value of art to decrease since making quality art has become more efficient, but the art profession will never die. We value the emotion and humanity that goes into art. AI will never completely replace human made art because it cannot produce that emotional connection on its own; it has to be fed with art made from a person. With proper regulation this could truly change the game for the better. Let’s just pray that AI is improved to be an aid and not advanced to be a replacement. Let's also work to make sure legislation and regulation is put in place that protects artist while we explore this new technology.
