Adobe embraces AI Art, it can go in the trash

An AI-generated image that Adobe used to promote its ad

Adobe was known as the company that made Acrobat and PhotoShop. Adobe is becoming increasingly recognized, however, as one of the greatest digital custodians of the modern era.

From unsolicited subscription forms to Making people pay for certain colors in PhotoshopThe company, like so many others in these turbulent times, is more interested in growing its bottom line at any cost than it is in taking a moment to consider the needs of its users, or the consequences of its actions.

I’m talking about this today because, less than a week after people were forced to check they weren’t reading an onion story when learning something colorsthe company announced that it is embracing AI art, which is not only a colossal hoax, but also a serious threat to the livelihoods of artists around the world, big and small.

I have already explained my feelings about artificial intelligence on this website –I wrote this feature back in August to interview a range of artists in the video game and entertainment industry—and thinks it’s bad not only because it’s a threat to artists, but also art. While people’s jobs are of course important, we’re not just talking about cotton gins here, and How is this in many ways the breakdown of labor versus capital; We are talking about a process that encroaches on fundamentally human pastime and creative pursuit.

Machines do not make art. They are machines! They only make an approximate casserole from the human art they have been fed with, in an overwhelming number of cases without credit or compensation. as such Dan Sheehan says in his great article Art in the age of gentrificationAI art is not about art, it is just “a technology that clearly exists to remove the human element from the process of artistic expression”.

In any case! Adobe last week dropped an ad Saying that AI-generated art will be made available as part of the company’s extensive library of stock images, he went so far as to say that the field “amplifies human creativity”. The company boldly says, time and time again, things like “We have looked deeply into these questions and implemented a new submission policy that we believe will ensure our content uses AI technology responsibly by creators and customers alike,” and that “Generative AI is a huge leap forward for creators.” Harnessing the amazing power of machine learning to make you think faster by developing images using words, drawings, and gestures.”

creators? step away! These people do not create anything! They punch words into a computer that has been fed actual art! And even if, as they claim, Adobe can only publish images that are “properly created, used, and disclosed,” it’s still bad! Jah! Try to do good One One of the issues of AI art – stealing art – does not excuse it from others, such as the fact that these images or their creation have nothing to do with art!

Reaction among artists has of course been about as negative as every other AI art ad of the past six months, with some criticizing the company while others resort to more traditional cries: that artists simply pirate PhotoShop rather than give this company another dime.
