Unpacking the Debate Over AI Art



Unpacking the Debate Over AI Art

You may have recently noticed friends posting cartoon likenesses of themselves in various fantastical formats on social media. They didn’t commission digital artists to create those renditions. They generated images through a free trial of a new Artificial Intelligence (AI) digital art program called Lensa.

Lensa is just the latest program in a wave of AI art software. Other programs include DALL-E and Stable Diffusion, which generate imagery based on user-generated text. There’s even a print version of such software called ChatGPT that writes essays based on keywords.

Not surprisingly, the technology has sparked a raging debate about how it exploits existing artists’ work and has the potential to displace the need for human artists altogether.

 

Rising Up with Sonali is a radio and television show that brings progressive news coverage rooted in gender and racial justice to a wide audience. Rising Up With Sonali was built on the foundation of Sonali Kolhatkar's earlier show, Uprising, which became the longest-running drive-time radio show on KPFK in Los Angeles hosted by a woman. RUS airs on Free Speech TV every weekday.
