At some point, there will be no job left at all. Whether we'll live in 3% (excellent Brazilian series) or The Culture depends on societal, not technological choices. I won't say more since this line of discussion would break the "no politics" ban on this forum.

There are fewer agricultural jobs now than in 1780 despite the increase in population, yet we don't see anyone lamenting this loss.
no one complains about those jobs because most were back-breaking and that new jobs opened up the latter is not happening.
a social choice to make a nice world is less likely than me rolling nothing but twenties in stats generation.

but you're right we are running out of ways to keep this not being political.

anyone at least found a good ai art app as I am trying to hammer out what something would look like but I have the art ability of a apple.

You can run stable diffusion locally, provided your PC is not a toaster. I've been wanting to give it a try, teach it to draw in my style, then use it to produce art in a faster fashion, so that, let's say I can actually produce a comic at a good pace. I'd be providing both the original art and do all of the corrections for the final art, this would free time to work on more elaborate sequences.

I was looking more for something to merge ideas together to make a cool-looking head.

Artwork is definitely something I consider when I buy a D&D product. I have favorite artists, and I have preferences about how certain things are illustrated. I don't like the implications of AI-generated art, especially the impacts they might have on my favorite artists.

Even if I put the important socioeconomic issues aside, though, I just don't think AI-created artwork looks all that great. Even the stuff on display in this thread, presented as examples of "the good stuff," is...only passable. At best. It doesn't do it for me.
 

Google search just identified the song was listening to on the radio. I imagine this application must have been trained on a vast set of music, or maybe it keeps a vast database of music and compares what it heard.

Is it problematic if, hypothetically, Google didn't get permission from the artists? Is it not problematic because the application is not producing anything other than an identification of the artist?

Everything about what they are doing with AI, everything, is problematic. I only regret that my son will have to raise children in this world, as its sure as hell not going to improve.

I mean honestly folks we are going to be just handing the keys over to tech, and we should all be aware (even if we wont admit it openly) just how risky that is at this point.

I feel like the music analogy would be if Google was sampling music to make mashups and not getting permission/crediting.

Using AI to identify the artist based on a screenshot wouldn’t be controversial. It’s the creation of new work by mashing up existing stuff that makes it legally… interesting.

(Notice that when humans do this it’s generally considered fine, morally, so long as it’s not for profit or trying to replace the original. But it remains technically against IP law to do so, except for several exceptions.)
