Join the AI LA and Hero House communities for a panel on “AI Disrupting Art: Helping artists or taking their jobs?” Generative AI art tools, like Midjourney, DALL·E 2, and Stable Diffusion, have gained much attention and controversy lately when an artist used AI to win a fine-arts competition at the Colorado State Fair. Now stock footage marketplaces like Shutterstock and Getty Images are banning AI-generated content.
Where do we draw the boundary between when text-to-image and other generative adversarial networks (GANs) help with an artist's creativity as opposed to being their creativity?
Following their panel discussion attendees will be able to develop art with popular text-to-image generators Midjourney, DALL·E 2, and Stable Diffusion.
