First I read this blog post from Seth Godin.
Then a couple days later, I came across this NYT article about Jason M. Allen (headline: “An A.I.-Generated Picture Won an Art Prize. Artists Aren’t Happy”) who took first prize with a picture completely generated by A.I. (image above).
The last paragraph/quote from Mr. Allen is particularly alarming. (Or is it trolling?)
“This isn’t going to stop. Art is dead, dude. It’s over. A.I. won. Humans lost.”
How to fight back and win?
You don’t. You play a different game. Make art from your heart. Art for art’s sake.
When you do that…A.I. and anything else….can’t touch this.
