3D AI Start-up turns out to be a SCAM!

"Kaedim" is an AI start-up that claims to generate 3D geometry from 2D images.
Turns out, they're just paying pajeet mechanical turks to re-create in blender and are charging $600 per month for it!

      They advertise their service as an AI-powered 3D model generator from 2D images, but from the picture it looks as if there never was any AI to begin with while you're paying them money under the impression that there was. That's really not ethical and might not even be legal.

      You could probably just hire someone on Fiverr instead and get a better result.

        AlertWageSlave(image);

        I wouldn't use ai anyway because it's a meme and I hate pajeets.

      I don't see why it matters as long as you get the models
      who would prefer worse results just because they are automatically generated?

      people have been taking issue with the quality of the models, especially for the price. at the current rate of 30 generations per month (for $539) picrel would have cost $20, or $60 if you were on the professional plan. at that point you might as well give someone on fiver 24 hours so they can it properly

    is this the future of business?
    you advertise something and then pay some third-worlder to do the actual work?

      It's been like that for a long time.
      Stuff like Amazon Go stores were run by mechanical Turks in India manually adding and removing things from your cart, delivery apps in Europe unironically use south American labor to pilot their delivery bots for $2 a day.

    Any variant of Sillycon Valley investor deserves to be scammed out of every penny they own. UBER FOR X, Web3/5/69 fetishism, and every form of shallow tech trend will never stop being their fault, so maybe I don't mind clever people abusing their lust for LE NEXT BIG THING for easy capital.
