Does AI disrupts art?

Check out the image up above. Where do you put your thoughts? Those of you who guessed “an oil painting of a joyful raccoon taking a selfie while riding a monster wave towards the sunset” are on the right track. DALL-E 2, an OpenAI machine learning (ML) model, created this one-of-a-kind image. With only a few words of description, the AI was able to identify what it was looking for on the internet and turn my words into a picture.

DALL-E 2 joins the ranks of other AI art generators such as NightCafe and Deep Dream Generator, as well as the 18-month-old Jasper, which garnered $125 million in a Series A round at a $1.5 billion value. The recent years have shown that artificially intelligent art has many intriguing future uses. It may have a favorable effect on a wide variety of workers in a wide variety of fields, not only artists.

Graphic, interior, fashion, and product designers, to mention a few, will benefit greatly from the usage of AI art because of the importance placed on these skills in their respective fields. It’s vital to retain productivity and prevent burnout, and these tools will assist decrease and even eliminate some of the tiresome processes required in generating creative material. They will shorten the time it takes to come up with new designs and make existing ones better.

Concerns are raised about whether or not the widespread use and adoption of these algorithms and programs will eventually make the work of human artists obsolete. No, and probably not for a very long time. According to research done in 2019 by the Oxford Internet Institute, the majority of experts believe that the connection between artists and their medium does not alter due to the incorporation of AI into the creative process. That is to say, for the foreseeable future, a human artist will still be necessary for creative work. Although AI art generators can run and improve with the help of ML, they are not fully independent and still need human input.

Innovations in artificial intelligence (AI) in the creative sectors are exciting, and we’re just starting to see their impact on society. It will be interesting to see how new AR and VR companies start to use AI generative art tools as AI and ML continue to gain popularity with venture capitalists ($123 billion will be invested in AI and ML by 2021). Perhaps in the future, we will be able to instruct a computer to create a whole virtual reality environment by putting a few words into a textbox, just as anybody today can instruct a computer to construct an exact representation of an idea in their brain.
