MLP has it’s own DALL-E/Craiyon generator now huh?… I wonder what negative impact will that create on artists now that AI thing seems to easily mimic and copy someone else’s artwork.
I’d just like to point out that discussions like these happened over a century ago when cameras started being a thing. A lot of people truly believed it was the end of all art, that there was no skill or artistry involved in taking pictures, that the blackboxes should be destroyed and those taking or exhibiting photographs should be shunned etc.And not only did people continue to create art, but the number of people doing so exploded. And ever since tablets were invented, along with digital art editing programs, it’s exploded even further. Along with the agreement that photography is art in itself, just a different type of art than using a pencil or paintbrush.The invention of cars also didn’t lead the the extinction of horses or horse riding; it made travel more accessible to everyone, and elevated horse riding from something common to something of high value. The invention of cinema didn’t run theatres out of business, it made entertainment more accessible, created new industries, and elevated the quality of theatre even further.And as for coding being art, outside of what the code is going to be used for, it definitely can be. Sure, for most programmers it’s just a mechanical task, like a McDonald’s cook preparing a burger; but a chef at a 3-star Michelin restaurant is definitely creating art when they prepare a meal, right? Both are effectively doing the same thing in the end.
