AI-generated art from Financial Times

In less than a minute, with no human intervention, a website or app can generate an astounding visual approximation from any statement, such as “Ginger cat looks longingly over a vista of Istanbul from the top of a minaret while the sun sets, anime style.”

The question is whether or whether artificially created artwork will influence future artistic endeavors by humans. In light of the recent cover article in FT Weekend Magazine, we decided to compile some of our readers’ own AI artworks made using open-source software such as Dall-E 2 and Midjourney.

Some of the top entries are included here, along with details on the tools and inputs the authors used to produce them. Give us your feedback in the section below.
