The negative implications of AI generated art

Have you ever heard of AI-generated art? Probably, it's been circulating a lot with AI generated art causing controversies and winning art competitions, and just causing a general ruckus. It comes with some serious drawbacks. Today, I wanted to talk to you about some of the potential downsides of AI-generated art.

First off, it does not have the same level of creativity and originality as art created by humans. Think about it, AI algorithms are designed to mimic human behaviour and replicate human-made art, so they won't have that extra "something" that makes art truly unique. This can lead to AI-generated art that feels uninspired and like a copy of something else (cause it is).

Another issue is that it could lead to the displacement of human artists and the devaluation of their work. As AI algorithms get better and better at creating high-quality art, there might be less of a demand for amateur human artists. This could mean less opportunities and income for human artists and it could also result in a decrease in the value and appreciation of visual art overall.

Lastly, AI-generated art could raise some ethical concerns. Like, when AI algorithms replicate the styles and works of specific artists without their permission. This can and does lead to legal issues and disputes over ownership and attribution, and it could also undermine the integrity and authenticity of art pieces overall.

All in all, AI-generated has the potential to be useful, but we need to be aware of the downsides. We have to find a way to coexist with AI-generated art (cause it's not going away) while also protecting the rights and livelihood of human artists. Let's be responsible and make sure we're using this technology in a way that benefits everyone.
