Readings: Artificial Creativity

Infinite Images and the latent camera

When AI can make art – what does it mean for creativity?

Online Art Communities Begin Banning AI-Generated Images

Invasive Diffusion: How one unwilling illustrator found herself turned into an AI model

Post a reaction paper on #assignment, some starting points:

Is machine learning going to replace visual artists?
What are the ethical dilemmas raised by AI tools?
Can neural networks enhance your creative process?
Should AI generated images be banned from certain communities and practices?
How could AI image generation platforms be less exploitative toward living artists?
What new art movements and styles could emerge as a result of (or reaction to) these technologies?

After you do that try to cheat by asking ChatGPT to write the reaction paper and see how bland and generic its answers are (no matter how formally correct). If you are as boring and impersonal as the AI you get a C on this assignment.
