      anyone who says "frick artists" and uses generative neuronal networks to create slop (trained on art made by said artists) is being an ungrateful little b***h, not only are you taking and not giving but you are being an butthole to those who made it possible even against their will, so frick you instead, making slop is free (if it isn't for you then lmao) but not being an butthole is too

    Consoomerism is the spiritual death of this species. A population of golems born and raised to consoom will inevitably come to view art as a product, and the process of creation as a mere process of production. Under this framework, only the final product matters -- the product is viewed as a self-contained object in a vacuum, with no origin, no context and no history. This is necessary partly because the origin is usually sordid enough to devalue the product if it were part of its subjective valuation, partly because it is the consumer's "private property" and so it must come with no strings attached, or at least with no psychological strings that connect to the inner world of another individual. In a culture shaped by such a system, the method of production is incidental and irrelevant, thus the creator, who is just an artifact of the method, is also irrelevant, and so we naturally reach a point where golems will readily accept fake machine "art" because they can consoom it in endless amounts and it looks good enough in the 5 seconds of attention they're willing to dedicate to it.

    But there is an upside to all this. Once AI "art" finally becomes indistinguishable from human art (from the point of view of art as a product), and the abundance of these products becomes so large that they lose their value and appeal as consumables, it's not human art that will die, but the idea of art as a product. In the long run, the original idea of art will prevail: the one that refuses to separate art from the artist, or the art from its creation process, and views both as integral to the piece itself, being parts of its identity and value.

                You could use your own exact argument as a counter. Paintings people consider deep and artistic could be reduced to "clocks melting" and "man screaming with swirly background" art is and has always been bullshit its not the art itself that actually has any worth it's the story behind it, who created it and why they did so. If you use AI as a tool to acomplish your vision there is literally no issue artists do it. programmers do it, writers do it. It's a tool not magic. AI art can look good but it will because of above reasons never carry the same value as traditional art or even weird digital fetish art so i really don't understand why artists are so fricking worried. if anything "handmade art" will be more valuable in a market oversaturated by lazy AI art

                First of all because there is no definition of art, some people think it is beauty, some people think it is representing an ideal, others think it is to point out social issues. I think that if you need a piece of text to explain art than you could just as well get rid of the art itself and keep the text. But just saying "art is expression" is far too facile to be of any meaning, maybe Dall-e Asuka #90433 speaks more to someone than universally acknowledged "really good artist". Most #art to me is nothing more than noise.

          AI is not a problem for actual artists, it is however a problem for graphic designers since companies will just use some shitty prompt to generate a gross generic logo they don't wanna pay for. Im not saying AI is being used well for art rn but i don't think its the doomsday of all art like some people seem to think. It is being abused but they hype dies down eventually when people realise "AI" is just another keyword to sell useless chink products

          i pay both artists and graphic designers within my line of work and i will gladly keep doing so. not becuse a computer couldnt do what they do but because theyre more creative than me and can sketch up ideas better than what i could possibly think of myself. Artists are not defined by what tools they use. Someone using crayons could be more skilled than someone with guache colors and a 3000dollar brush.

                the point isn't about the inner workings, but the fact they both ingest the same things and create things that are undiscernable (or else why would you call it theft, and didn't two years ago when it was hot garbage)
                the aristocrat point from the other anon for example is about how if ai art isn't art because it exists just to satisfy a consoomer, then commissioned art cannot be art too because the money stiffles the expression, ultimately you're seething because a man in the privacy of his home got some drawing in the style of a guy that wasn't paid, as if copycats weren't a thing before. also, some could argue that prompting is a form of art, albeit as involved as mixing colors, it could be seen as a technical feat as it's like there's millions of "primary colors", it's at least as much of a "theft" and involved as writing shitty fanfics about copyrighted characters

                and the 1+1 thing is to point at you being unwilling to offer any rebuttal other than "no ure wrong"

                despite your cherrypicking, i see people mistaking ai art for real art all the time because they don't even know of the concept, I only need one image that's fooled at least one person to make my point stand, while the opposite requires than no ai generated image ever fooled a human, gee i wonder which is the most likely

                How is it a "psychotic" assertion ? Humans can learn, computers can learn (albeit less efficiently).

                Also, 5 pictures/second for 30 years gets you close to 5 billion. Your math is off.

          Ah, no, the old-fashioned art forgery isn't the main game here. The average man typically doesn't buy actual paintings anymore. They buy prints and posters. Endlessly reproducible.

          The main game is generating whatever might be marketable in the style of famous artists and then selling them as prints, posters, t-shirts, mugs, whatever. Sure, you profit maybe a few dollars per item you sell, but if you make a good enough app where people can quickly prompt a hoodie design and order it from a print shop in china, you can make big bucks.

        Fine art or 'collectible' art (putting it in the language of dnd might help you) is mostly about the artist and the work's history rather than any objective value you illiterate.

          Black person, that's not what "fine art" means. You're thinking of "traditional art" or "physical media".
          That market is corrupt as frick and virtually meaningless to people below the top 1%. Your "fine art" is either historical artifacts by long-gone artists, or it's contemporary nonsense art that's been marked-up to commit tax evasion.

          aislop forgings of mona-lisa is obviously not what's at stake here. it's the fact that new artists will have a harder time emerging or have the benefit of being able to practice their craft and create art full-time.

    >frick AI art
    You say this because you don't get it.
    There's no "AI art"
    This is a program that generates images.
    It's not artistic. It's 90% random and you depend on someone else wasting a city's worth of electricity to make a checkpoint so you can make something remotely good looking.
    I'm downloading my 3rd anime checkpoint right now because the other 2 don't work well with the style of the artist I'm trying to rip off.
    How do I rip off the artist? I downloaded a LoRA someone else made based on that artist's drawings.
    Do you see a pattern here?
    I keep downloading stuff other people made and I don't know how any of this works just in order to rip off an artist.
    It's not "art". I have almost zero input in this.
    I don't know where the LoRA tokens come from. I'm guessing a booru. It's not good enough for me. I'll need to train my own LoRA with my own image descriptions just to have a tiny bit of creative control over this machine.
    And I still wouldn't call it art then.

        this. these are two parallel issues: one concerns the attempted destruction of people's source of income, and has little to do with "art" per se; the other concerns the propagation of a degenerate mindset that devalues actual art culturally, as well as professional illustration financially. the most obvious damage to art and culture comes from the intersection of the two: people who could previously hone their craft WHILE making a living doing professional illustration would have to use whatever time and motivation they have left after a day of soul-draining wage-slavery, limiting their progress if not demotivating them entirely.

        Black person, what corporate masters? Stable Diffusion is FOSS, noone has it under control, don't give a shit about other services.

        Artists kept whining about "muh stolen data", so guess what? Getty Images used their giant library of stock photos they legally own to make their own image generator, this is good, right? They have the full rights to use the images, after all.
        Well artcels still bawl their eyes out about how it's not fair, should've thought about that before giving up the rights.
        So no, I don't feel bad for them, because

        1) They can't even stick to their own requirements and keep moving the goalposts
        2) They, or anyone else are not complaining about other jobs being automated, why should they get special treatment while other jobs become obsolete?
        3) The only people creating cancerous culture are the artists themselves, they are the ones being toxic to AI artists, insulting people regardless of why they do AI art. They are the ones accusing eachother of using AI, because of their giant ego's. They are the ones refusing to use AI as a tool that could make their jobs easier (since they constantly complain about crunch and too much work), despite Stable Diffusion having 0 entrance cost (It's understandable to be pissed at proprietary tools)
        4) They are moronic enough to think a giant dataset like Laion 5b is still required.
        Any huge corpo, like Disney owns enough assets and can join up with other ones, like above mentioned Getty Images, to train their own private model, which was trained only on data they legally own, completely shitting on artcels biggest argument.

      Reasonable take, I also have mixed feelings about how certain groups are pushing AI prompt users as a new breed of artist (Usual argument is how it levels the playing field for people or something) which feels like a way to legitimise themselves.

      But I start thinking if you consider photographer is a kind of artist and their work is based around using a "tool" - I've seen the term synthographer bounced around for artists who primarily use AI as their medium bounced around lately. But it still makes me feel a bit out of sorts.

        The discourse is as old as art itself. There's an easy way to separate all artists in 2 broad categories:
        Classic artists, who create using simple tools and techniques known for hundreds of years, put in a lot of effort, and produce objectively beautiful (yes, beautify is objective) results.
        Assisted artists, who create using increasingly complex tools and modern tech, and produce whatever they want. Photographers, electronic musicians, wacom furries, etc.

        AI assisted artists fit perfectly into the latter category.

          There are very important distinctions you are missing here.
          Even digital mediums (visual and musical) has required a great understanding and practice of how to use your tool in order to create something excellent. Just because you have a Wacom tablet and a pirated copy of photoshop doesn't mean you can paint like Craig Mullins. Just because you downloaded FL Studio and know the difference between a major and a minor chord doesn't mean you're ready to work as a professional producer. Just because you have the best camera phone on the market, or even a proper DSLR, doesn't mean you're ready to go work for National Geographic. There is a lot of work and expertise that goes in to a high quality piece of art using these tools.

          The direction AI art is pushing towards is "just make a wish!". There's no level of expertise required here, and in a corporate setting they don't even care about generating enough options to find the one that looks or sounds the best. Just hurry up and pick one. No style, no taste.

            I agree that there are great photographers and producers that possess exceptional mastery. My point is it's a different kind of art and you can't compare, say, Aivazovsky's Ninth Wave and a 48MP pic of a sea, even if it's a great shot.
            It's a different kind of expertise.

            >The direction AI art is pushing towards is "just make a wish!". There's no level of expertise required here
            I disagree, SD requires a lot of technical knowledge and intuitive understanding of the way those programs process your requests. Even anons in the DALL-E thread used to demonstrate some pretty creative ways to force particular outputs. It all reminds me the other kinds of what I called "assisted art" all too much.
            Even after a few more iterations, when the models' interpretation of the prompts' improves drastically and everyone will have access to an uncensored one, you will still have to "paint" your output with words, and the more capable you are in describing all the important details, the better is your result. "Prompt engineering" is a cringe term, but there's definitely a cohort of people who are more competent at this kind of writing the the rest.

              You're right, they're very different types of art that require very different skillsets and years of practice. The same isn't true for AI generated art since you get 80% of the way there by typing "big wave in ocean" into the prompt, and then you can take a couple of minutes to refine it further. And this goes for *any type of imagery*, plus other types of media.

              >SD requires a lot of technical knowledge and intuitive understanding of the way those programs process your requests.
              This is still very early days of this technology and these AI are only going to get better at interpreting prompts. That's a key factor to what's going to determine market leadership in the future. Again, you're already 80% there by typing the shortest summary into a text prompt. Aivazovsky was not 80% there when he drew the first pencil stroke of the sketch under his painting.

              Furthermore, you have to understand that this is going to have a huge detrimental effect on the demand of handmade media. AI generated work is going to be normalized, everyone who needs a picture is going to prompt it in a couple of seconds rather than commission/hire an artist to do it, fewer people are going to bother learning anything when the computer can just do it for them, and only a fraction of those who remain are going to be able to do art for more than a couple of hours a week.

              This isn't just a moment like the introduction of the automatic loom, this is more like a shockwave of multiple Industries suddenly getting their equivalent of the automatic loom *plus* they realise that they can outsource their work to chink slaves rather than domestic workers, all at once. This risks being a huge tank on the job market and economies around the world. This goes way beyond you hentai and furry hobbyists charging for commissions.

      You do know that BOT has largely had it in for artistic types for years right? AI art is simply the nail in the coffin for the artist faction because we can finally own them, and even more ironically it can be done with their own work.
      The fact that the STEM gang have beaten the fruity art school dropouts at their own game is the ultimate coup de grace.

    anti AI tards are all ignorant morons. i'd know, i've tried to engage them countless times now.
    they refuse to understand the most basic things about AI.
    and when you try to explain how it works they'll basically say
    >it doesn't matter/why does this matter how it works? i believe what i believe, and i believe that AI is stealing souls

    this is really the gist of it. there's nothing else to their thoughts.
    they are fundamentally denying that the AI is capable of doing what it is OBVIOUSLY doing (which is learning), and choose to believe in fearmongering and being outraged instead.

    even when you tards talk about "statistics" and "curve fitting", do you realize what that means in this context?
    curve fitting means it is trying to fit into the pattern of the dataset. to be INDISTINGUISHABLE among the pattern. that's the goal and that the AI is trying to achieve.

        there is a difference between copying the datapoints and inferring new datapoints.
        this is what patterns recognition and learning is about.

        there have been papers talking about how you can remove 10 thousand images of a specific concept from the model and the model will still output the concept in almost the exact same way.
        that's because it isn't copying or cobbling together data, it is generalizing. it's using the data to "learn".

                the model is obviously defined by the inputs. but that is different from it copying or plagiarizing the inputs. as my example clearly shows.
                generalization is a accepted concept. and it is the thing you morons never want to talk about.

                it has a GENERAL understanding of its tokens and concepts, inferred from seeing patterns in the dataset.
                it can't do anything with a single image other than copy it. but if it sees a thousand cats, then maybe it will start to grasp the general features and shapes, textures and everything that represents a cat in general.

                with this kind of logic, you can even say that people are plagiarists of real life.
                you might think this is a leap of logic, but this is EXACTLY what you're saying. that output is forever theft of the input, regardless of what happens inbetween (learning or copying)

                it's not unsimilar to what AI models do during training. (creating an output that matches the input, keep in mind this is only during training, during inference it doesn't try to copy anything)

                A diffusion mode consists mainly of a variational autoencoder that transforms pixel data to and from a regularized latent space, which allows for easy interpolation of image features by interpolating between their corresponding points, and a denoiser, which can take an arbitrary point on the far outskirts of the main body of the distribution of training data in latent space, and take you back, in small steps, to the most likely starting point inside that main body, under the assumption that you got to your noisy point through a random diffusion process. Prompt-guided denoising just conditions the probabilities for each denoising on the prompt's tokens. There is also a cross-attention mechanism that helps mutually-condition parts of the image that are spatially distant, which helps coherence in terms of the color scheme and lighting. Calling this "curve fitting" is fricking ridiculous, and the main reason I even entertain your moronation is to highlight a striking difference between a diffusion model and a human artist: the former starts from noise and always try to make its way back to the bulk of the distribution, where most of the training data lies, so as to make "art" that is statisically normal, or at least as statistically normal as it can possibly be under the prompt conditioning. Artistic exploration does the opposite thing: it will start from something representative of "normal" art and make its way towards the outskirts where truly original works necessarily lie.

                By the way, I didn't read a single fricking word of your botlike shart.

                that's nice and all, but how does this confirm or deny your point in that AI is plagiarizing?

                there are obvious differences in the process. many that come from the mechanical nature of progressively making art. what the AI is doing is more akin to just the imagining of something, without the putting-to-paper part and all the accidents and inaccuracies that can happen during the process.

                >Calling this "curve fitting" is fricking ridiculous
                "curve fitting" is what people mean when they call the AI an "statistical model".
                or what do YOU think it means to be a "statistical model"?
                and now you're going to deny this because it's inconvenient to your misinformed narrative?

                again, everything you said about statistics is ultimatively about this. curve fitting.
                it chooses the color that fits - based on the PATTERNS it has seen in the training data
                it chooses the shape that fits - based on the PATTERNS it has seen in the training data
                it chooses the details, the textures, EVERYTHING - based on the PATTERNS it has seen in the training data

                A diffusion mode consists mainly of a variational autoencoder that transforms pixel data to and from a regularized latent space, which allows for easy interpolation of image features by interpolating between their corresponding points, and a denoiser, which can take an arbitrary point on the far outskirts of the main body of the distribution of training data in latent space, and take you back, in small steps, to the most likely starting point inside that main body, under the assumption that you got to your noisy point through a random diffusion process. Prompt-guided denoising just conditions the probabilities for each denoising on the prompt's tokens. There is also a cross-attention mechanism that helps mutually-condition parts of the image that are spatially distant, which helps coherence in terms of the color scheme and lighting. Calling this "curve fitting" is fricking ridiculous, and the main reason I even entertain your moronation is to highlight a striking difference between a diffusion model and a human artist: the former starts from noise and always try to make its way back to the bulk of the distribution, where most of the training data lies, so as to make "art" that is statisically normal, or at least as statistically normal as it can possibly be under the prompt conditioning. Artistic exploration does the opposite thing: it will start from something representative of "normal" art and make its way towards the outskirts where truly original works necessarily lie.

                it's practically impossible for a human to create something that isn't to some degree influenced by things other people have created (you'd have to have grown up in a forest away from any other people your whole life or something), so this argument doesn't really mean anything in the end

                On every level. You start from a semi-random point in a fricking space entirely defined by the training data. Then you use a denoising process entirely defined by the training data, that relies on trying to guess where a point came from if it was from the distribution of the training data, which is defined entirely by the training data. Fricking lol. None of these details are even relevant, since it is immediately apparent from a high-level mathematical perspective that the outputs are defined by the model and the model is defined by THE DATA IT MODELS. How much harder can you fail? The fact that you keep aruing in and of itself cements my point about the nature of your cult.

                Ascribing to a specific school of thought from epistemology doesn't make some "anti-human" or corporate, humans have debated these topics for millenia and their concepts have existed long before capitalist mega-corps ruled. If you founded your argument less on ad-hominem you would convince more people of your ideas, or at least come off as less deranged.

                Humans brains also model data, including what plausible images look like, obviously, but while a human artist can (very roughly) be said to HAVE a model of art, he cannot be said to BE a model of art. As I explained in a previous post, if you think about art in terms of some latent space, all the juicy and original stuff lies on the margins of the data-generating distribution existing art is hypothetically drawn from. In this sense, maybe most of the groundbreaking art of the future is actually included in the latest SD model, but the overwhelming majority of what lies on those margins is utter shit. The further you stray from the main body of the distribution, the deeper you go into a library of babel. The diffusion model, by definition, cannot tell apart barely coherent shit from strikingly original, genius works of art. It's all just low-likelihood points to it. A human doesn't work this way. A human has facilities for analogy and symbolism. A human has artistic intuition. A human has an aesthetic sense. A human has the power of self-reflection, to pinpoint what aspects of avant-garde trash appeal to him, so that they could be distilled and refined in a better form. A human has the capacity to explore the margins of art in a rational fashion and to trace a sensible path through it into something good, thereby expanding humanity's shared model of art. Etc. etc. etc. None of this is comprehensible to adherents of your corporate religion of automatonism, and it's """Rational Skeptic""" (tm) brand of spiteful mutations.

                >A human has facilities for analogy and symbolism. A human has artistic intuition. A human has an aesthetic sense.
                I fail to see why a human that guides a diffusion model with conditioning to produce a work of art they subjectively enjoy is not employing these same artistic sensibilities you have described.
                >A human has the capacity to explore the margins of art in a rational fashion and to trace a sensible path through it into something good, thereby expanding humanity's shared model of art
                Most artists end up tracing that path to poorly drawn furry porn and other degenerate slop. What is it you fear exactly? That great artists will no longer be able to do this?

                Okay, so it is art. You just don't like the people making it. Understandable, many of them are twats who have no appreciation for why models like SD can exist in the first place.
                >It's thinly-veiled plagiarism
                I think that its ability to produce something which isn't perfectly normal from a statistical standpoint through condition means that it isn't inherently plagiarism. I won't deny that it has the potential to plagiarize, however.
                >harming them will also harm the minority of them who do produce genuine art
                I think if the minority leveraged diffusion models in their own processes, once they become more advanced, they could produce genuine art in higher quantities, which would benefit everyone. Perhaps, one day, a model which is geared specifically to integrating itself with the human process you've described will be created.

                Nope. It is a sample from a statistical model of preexisting art, generated entirely by a machine with no artistic vision or intent.

                >I think that its ability to produce something which isn't perfectly normal from a statistical standpoint through condition means that it isn't inherently plagiarism
                I think something that can objectively and accurately described as being 100% derived from, dependent on, defined by other people's work, is plagiarism, pure as can be. Most normal human beings with normal human sensibilities would be inclined to agree IF they understood that the premise is true, but most people have no technical knowledge and are easy to mislead by superficial appearances.

                Guided by a human through conditioning which leads to works that aren't perfectly normal, which implies some amount of originality and hence can be considered art. I came to that conclusion after reading your explanations.

                The rest of your argument is just grouping whatever points you cannot tackle into a boogeyman. If you think that will change people's minds, go ahead. I think the only product from that will be arising agreement from other people who already share your perspective.

                How is higher quantity inherently better? If anything an increase in quantity, and the ease of creation, makes art as an end result a commodity like any other that is consumed and discarded. This mentality is inherently negative as it becomes the baseline assumption for what art is: a simple commodity rather than an expression of something painfully human. Excess of quantity by nature creates a culture of devaluation, and if AI art is perceived as art then that will become the assumed standard for what art is. We can look forward to a future scenario where "art" is so cheaply and easily created that it bears no capacity for reflection. Obviously the aforementioned won't matter to you if you're the type that believes art is purely the end result rather than a process, but I believe that mentality is itself a problem. Humans aren't really good at restraining ourselves, even when it would be to our benefit to do so.

                >How is higher quantity inherently better?
                A higher quantity of original art produced by the minority of good artists is not a bad result in my opinion. It's not like the reflection and passion of that art disappears just because they used AI in the process to help create it, as long as the human is still the dominant factor in the process of its creation.
                >a simple commodity rather than an expression of something painfully human
                This isn't a problem with AI, what you're describing is a product of unchecked capitalism. We already started treating art like this before diffusion models. Diffusion models are simply accelerating that process. If you want to destroy them because they accelerate, I can understand that perspective, but I don't think it is a proper resolution.

                How many of humanity's greatest painters were aphantasic, by your estimation? How many enjoyable paintings have you seen created by the congenitally blind? Just how absurdly low are you setting the bar for "visual art"? The human is not creating anything under the "AI" art scheme. just nagging the machine and selecting. If you think your prompts encapsulate the "art" in any meaningful way, just post prompts next time instead of the images and call yourself an artist. Or better yet, commission a drawgay and say his work is yours. You'd still be taking credit for someone else's work, great artist that you are, but at least you'd be helping pay someone's bills while you're at it.

                A much more subtle point, which will 100% be lost on you, is that learning how to draw is learning how to see. After learning how to see with your eye, you will learn how to see in your mind's eye, and only after learning to see with your mind's eye can you start about having an artistic vision. People who lack such skills vastly overestimate the coherence and substance of their "visual ideas". They will claim to have a crystal-clear picture of something, but when asked to nail down specific visual details even on the most basic level, they start to mumble.

                Nice post but I beat you to it here:

                https://i.imgur.com/t4qnXDx.jpg

                Consoomerism is the spiritual death of this species. A population of golems born and raised to consoom will inevitably come to view art as a product, and the process of creation as a mere process of production. Under this framework, only the final product matters -- the product is viewed as a self-contained object in a vacuum, with no origin, no context and no history. This is necessary partly because the origin is usually sordid enough to devalue the product if it were part of its subjective valuation, partly because it is the consumer's "private property" and so it must come with no strings attached, or at least with no psychological strings that connect to the inner world of another individual. In a culture shaped by such a system, the method of production is incidental and irrelevant, thus the creator, who is just an artifact of the method, is also irrelevant, and so we naturally reach a point where golems will readily accept fake machine "art" because they can consoom it in endless amounts and it looks good enough in the 5 seconds of attention they're willing to dedicate to it.

                But there is an upside to all this. Once AI "art" finally becomes indistinguishable from human art (from the point of view of art as a product), and the abundance of these products becomes so large that they lose their value and appeal as consumables, it's not human art that will die, but the idea of art as a product. In the long run, the original idea of art will prevail: the one that refuses to separate art from the artist, or the art from its creation process, and views both as integral to the piece itself, being parts of its identity and value.

                I'm not sure I agree on the upside bit. As skills to create manually are lost and the reliance on "skill" shifts to prompting (or whatever future form that manifests as), the underpinning mechanisms will be so complex that they will undoubtedly be under the control of large corporate/governmental interests. So while the return to form you mention may happen since there isn't a profit motive, it will happen under a context of allowance by authority (something that is only going to get worse). Art under a heavy pretense of censorship. AI mechanisms will be in a position to steer thoughts and ideas passively in a way that has no accountability. I know this isn't really part of the "art" argument, but they're inherently connected.

                I'm not sure I understand you correctly. You're saying that the technical expertise behind organic art will gradually go extinct, forcing people to rely on the controlled medium of machine-assisted illustration for visual self-expression?

                What a deluded idea, to have so little faith in humanity and human expression to believe a diffusion model will snuff out the flame of creativity. That is a truly pitiful way to look at the world.

                So you're conceding for the nth time that the output of the model is completely defined by other people's work. Acknowledge this directly in your next post and we'll see where we can go from here.

                This doesn't change the fact that the output is completely defined by other people's work. It just nudges the process of sampling a model of other people's work. You've conceded that the model and its output are completely defined by the training data. Why do you keep going in circles? Be honest, do you have a diagnosed mental illness?

                I'm not the previous person you were arguing with. I don't disagree with that notion at all. I just wonder why you think human originality is not derivative of a posteriori knowledge and what basis you have to believe this. If you believe in free will, just say so.

                Humans brains also model data, including what plausible images look like, obviously, but while a human artist can (very roughly) be said to HAVE a model of art, he cannot be said to BE a model of art. As I explained in a previous post, if you think about art in terms of some latent space, all the juicy and original stuff lies on the margins of the data-generating distribution existing art is hypothetically drawn from. In this sense, maybe most of the groundbreaking art of the future is actually included in the latest SD model, but the overwhelming majority of what lies on those margins is utter shit. The further you stray from the main body of the distribution, the deeper you go into a library of babel. The diffusion model, by definition, cannot tell apart barely coherent shit from strikingly original, genius works of art. It's all just low-likelihood points to it. A human doesn't work this way. A human has facilities for analogy and symbolism. A human has artistic intuition. A human has an aesthetic sense. A human has the power of self-reflection, to pinpoint what aspects of avant-garde trash appeal to him, so that they could be distilled and refined in a better form. A human has the capacity to explore the margins of art in a rational fashion and to trace a sensible path through it into something good, thereby expanding humanity's shared model of art. Etc. etc. etc. None of this is comprehensible to adherents of your corporate religion of automatonism, and it's """Rational Skeptic""" (tm) brand of spiteful mutations.

                besides the random noise and human-provided prompt, yes, i agree
                this is what i meant before, but hopefully this is more concise
                my main point before is that how is this any different to how humans make art? humans also take in inputs, form ideas (internal models), then create something from that
                there's a difference between simply copying something or a few things directly, like a clone or a collage, and forming a conceptual model of something out of many examples (such as the dog example, where you take many thousands of examples of dogs, and form a mental model of what a dog is that isn't a copy of any particular example you learned from) and making something from that concept

                So through conditioning AI can be limited from perfect statistical normalcy and thus provide some amount of originality. Interesting, anon.
                >it will start from something representative of "normal" art and make its way towards the outskirts where truly original works necessarily lie.
                The result of either process is through a posteriori knowledge, which is impossible to refute. It is impossible then for a work to be "truly" original, to say so would mean that work is not derivative of anything.

                yep, of course you didn't.
                i'm actually convinced intelligent people have all moved on or are pro-AI.
                to be anti-AI, you either are misinformed or you have to be a moronic mouthbreather like you.
                one that screams LALALA I CANT HEAR YOU.

                >a striking difference between a diffusion model and a human artist: the former starts from noise and always try to make its way back to the bulk of the distribution, where most of the training data lies, so as to make "art" that is statisically normal, or at least as statistically normal as it can possibly be under the prompt conditioning. Artistic exploration does the opposite thing: it will start from something representative of "normal" art and make its way towards the outskirts where truly original works necessarily lie.
                that's nice and all, but how does this confirm or deny your point in that AI is plagiarizing?

                there are obvious differences in the process. many that come from the mechanical nature of progressively making art. what the AI is doing is more akin to just the imagining of something, without the putting-to-paper part and all the accidents and inaccuracies that can happen during the process.

                >Calling this "curve fitting" is fricking ridiculous
                "curve fitting" is what people mean when they call the AI an "statistical model".
                or what do YOU think it means to be a "statistical model"?
                and now you're going to deny this because it's inconvenient to your misinformed narrative?

                again, everything you said about statistics is ultimatively about this. curve fitting.
                it chooses the color that fits - based on the PATTERNS it has seen in the training data
                it chooses the shape that fits - based on the PATTERNS it has seen in the training data
                it chooses the details, the textures, EVERYTHING - based on the PATTERNS it has seen in the training data

                it's not stealing images, it has LEARNED from them.

                [...]
                samegay

                that's really cool and all, but most art is normal art, that's what makes it normal
                if anything artists can use ai to learn what is normal, and use that to try to find ways to make something truly new, if that is what they want to do

                Get a load of this monkey absolutely losing it from rage and jealousy. Not only can he not draw, but he also can't into ML.

      If the target doesn't care about ML, but cares about art, slander art and artists.
      If the target doesn't care about ML or art, but hates soulless corpos with their replacement agenda, start rambling about the New Renaissance and how AI empowers individuals.
      If none of the above work, accuse the target of drawing and selling furry porn.

      and what exactly is even plagiarized at that point?

      can you plagiarize a color relationship? an angle?, a light setting?

      look at pic related. it literally APPLIED its learned knowledge to the original sketch. changes could be made to the sketch and the AI would still be able to interpret it. it could do that to any sketch. to the best of its ability anyway.

      what is being plagiarized here? do you think all these versions of that original sketch exist in the dataset, which the AI is supposedly plagiarizing from?
      (not to mention that the AI has no link to the dataset after training, merely the learned representations it got out of it)

      all these obvious questions that go against your narrative, and you refuse to think about it. refusing to accept the simple truth that the AI is learning, not stealing.
