      They don't care about a few dozen artists opting out, there are still many billions of images left. This is a win/win, shuts up most of the criticism probably without really noticeably hurting the model.

    Artists are training their meat neural net every time they go out into the world and see other people's artwork and images. They then generate their own based on that learning.

    Artists are just mad because they thought they were very far down in the line of people about to get their jobs axed by AI and they are upset and freaking out because they just learned that they are actually next in line. It tuns out it's easier to train a computer to draw/paint art than it is to teach it to flip hamburgers.

      cooking food takes more creativity than drawing. and ai will never be good at it because you need human taste for food. ai will never need food to survive to understand what makes it good

        false, our food industry already knows what makes good food, to make an ai do that is easy. The only difference to art is that for food you need robotics, this makes it less accessible than generating images on a screen.

      unlike an AI where you can share models and have them work immediately.

      it's why it's impressive and cool if some dude can do a cossack dance even though over there in the fabricator there is installed a hydraulic arm that can lift a car and never gets tired.

        Bro I feel you.
        I'm a drawgay too and I got into ai 2 months ago to make VN backgrounds so I'd only have to draw the characters, but I copy pasted a prompt of two cute maids standing next to each other and voila, 40 seconds later great pic that would have taken me ~18 hours to draw.
        But the hands were fucked up so I set it to batch render 500 overnight. And when I woke up, I had to scroll through hundreds of equally well made images, some with great hands even and then right there, I knew I was finished as an artgay.

        It was indeed ogre.

    Lobotomizing AI will not have the intended effect that artists are expecting, it won't stop AI development in the least. It'll just shift the focus to companies who won't participate in it, and give no fucks about your concerns, e.g., in places like China.

        Laion's not distributing the images, they're distributing the image url/CLIP tag pairs.
        You have to use something like img2dataset to grab the images (apparently 240TB worth in total)
        Grabbing the images isn't copyright infringement unless you distribute it.
        StabilityAI isn't distributing the final images either.

        As such, there's no actual copyright violations going on.

          Tencent owns ArtStation, moron. The watermark and anti-AI art law is going to apply to them.

          Doesn't matter either way, though. All artists have abandoned that platform. The only people I see posting are Activision Blizzard "America" artwork from their new WoW dragon expansion (another company Tencent has 40% shares in). So it's just going to be a website for Tencent to post their concept art and no organic growth from artists anymore. The China law is going to effect more companies in the West than you realize since they own everything in the West, but you don't seem like you keep up.

          this is true in theory, but morons are also lazy, and no matter how far technology advances, it still requires some effort and knowledge to put it to work. it'll still be easier to just call several different people until you find one gullible enough
          it's similar to crypto, when it started all you had to do was learn it and earn some good money, but how many people did it? not a lot. it's still easier to go mug someone.

      You will never be a real artist. You have no talent, you have no skills, you have no imagination. You are an untalented redditor twisting pixels by using buzzwords and interpolation into a crude mockery of nature’s perfection.

      All the “validation” you get is two-faced and half-hearted. Behind your back people mock you. Your parents are disgusted and ashamed of you, your “friends” laugh at your ghoulish creations behind closed doors.

      Artists are utterly repulsed by you. Thousands of years of artistic evolution have allowed artists to sniff out frauds with incredible efficiency. Even prompts that “pass” look uncanny and unnatural to an artist. Your anatomy is a dead giveaway. And even if you manage to get a desperate furry to commission you, he’ll turn tail and bolt the second he takes a second look at your distorted, incoherent pixel mess.

      You will never be happy. You wrench out a fake smile every single morning and tell yourself it’s going to be ok, but deep inside you feel the depression creeping up like a weed, ready to crush you under the unbearable weight.

      Eventually it’ll be too much to bear - you’ll buy a rope, tie a noose, put it around your neck, and plunge into the cold abyss. Your parents will find you, heartbroken but relieved that they no longer have to live with the unbearable shame and disappointment. They’ll bury you with a headstone marked with someone else's artwork, and every passerby for the rest of eternity will know that a nobody is buried there. Your body will decay and go back to the dust, and all that will remain of your legacy is a handful of reddit upvotes and a dead link to an image that was unmistakably created by a machine.

      This is your fate. This is what you chose. There is no turning back.

        More, seethe more for me artgay. Tell me how insignificant you'll feel once I can pay 1$ for 1000 credits and produce dozens of images in your "style". What will you do when I pass your style as my own, manipulate metadata on obscure servers to make you look like the copycat? What will you do when I pass your art as my own in gallaries and get whatever passes for admiration in the art world?

      Depends how dead the artist is. See the market for literature to get an idea of how companies prey on the works of dead writers for profit by picking up the copyrights through whatever slippery means possible.
      Then again, one method they do that by is by translation and then claiming copyright over the translation. Which I guess you can't do with a painting. But maybe say, the descendants of a painter can claim copyright.

    the shit is absolute ASS in this state anyways.
    wake me up once it can really learn what you want from it from just 5 to 10 images
    >b-but it can already do that!
    no, it can't. results look like absolute shit. you still need obscene server farm power to make base models. the whole idea of a handful of companies being in charge of creating a base model is flawed. shit needs to be able to learn from a couple images sourced by the user.

      too late now, should have done this before the first release/leak

      having a corpo scrape data and passing it off as their own is more obnoxious than an individual trying to recreate their favorite works

    The AI is a beast of burden, not a replacement. The only people bitching are shit-tier fetish artists.
    It's like serfs complaining about a workhorse that can make their farm tasks much easier.
