NEW AI Art Generator Faces Fierce Backlash!

It would be worthwhile to read this DeviantArt DreamUp review if you’re interested in AI art.

DeviantArt has released its own AI art generator and it’s paving the way for more ethical use of artists’ work.

Deviant Art is an artistic community for sharing artworks.
It’s owned by the website builder WIX called DreamUp.

DeviantArt claims that DreamUp lets you create AI art knowing that the creator and their work are treated fairly.
They believe that artists should be allowed to decide whether their work is being used within AI or not.

Shutterstock on Selling Rights

Recently Shutterstock admitted that they sold rights to their collection of works to be used in the AI art database and then conversely to create artwork that will be put in competition with the original art inside of Shutterstock.

This has provided irritation and anger from contributors to Shutterstock.
Especially when the AI art generators are being used to generate works that will compete for the revenue of works that were used to build them.
DeviantArt is claiming the moral high ground.
They say that artists should be able to tell third-party AI data sets whether or not their content can be used.
All deviations are automatically labeled as not authorized.
It means all of the work inside DeviantArt that has been shared is not by default allowed to be used and scraped by the AI art generators.
Deviant AI is including an HTML tag on all artists’ work which will prevent AI bots from scraping their images.
The tag “noai” and “noimageai” are appended to the HTML page associated with their art.

DeviantArts’ Terms and Services

In order to remain in compliance with DeviantArts’ terms of service pools will have to be prevented from downloading and scraping any page with these HTML tags.
And playing around a little bit with DreamUp gives you very much similar results to any Stable Diffusion UI.
In the DreamUp terms of service, they say that currently monetization and sales of images generated with DreamUp are not allowed.
So they’re not allowing you and their types of service to commercialize your works but quite how they would enforce that remains to be seen.
It is admirable to see a major platform takes a stake in protecting the rights and creativity of individual artists.
And yet it’s using Stable Diffusion for its AI art generator.
It has been trained on millions of works that were not given explicit permission to be included in their data set.

The cat is out of the bag there is a hugely available data set that already exists.
And there is no putting that dragon back in its cage it is out and it is wild.
Although it introduces some interesting concepts of protecting people’s work by adding HTML tags the fact remains, is that it’s using a model that still contains millions of images that were not given direct permission to be included in the models.
So in my opinion it shoots itself a little bit in the foot a marketing ploy to differentiate it from other AI art generators and to get people like me to give it some publicity.
It’s raising a lot of discussions across the spectrum and as one user comments, “no guys just know I opted out but I don’t really trust that to be honest AI images are not art having this website encourage it is really discouraging.”

Ai Art Is Changing Rapidly

The world of AI art is changing rapidly and legislation and policy are slow to catch up.
The ethics behind this topic are blurry and there is no definitive line between right and wrong.

Or the ability to create infinite libraries of heinousness and disgusting content.
heinousness and disgusting content.
And however exciting this technology is a small part of me cannot help but think we are building the most elaborate function-filled cage for us to die inside of.
If we are not protecting the rights of artists how do we protect the rights of people using AI to create new art?
it’s easier to give someone a new toy than it is to decide how they should be able to use it.
And with this, we have put a remarkably powerful technology into the hands of every soul on this planet.
The repercussions will be felt decades and centuries into the future.
This is a turning point and an epoch for civilization.
And I can’t wait to see what happens in this real-life sci-fi film.
