AI Artists Join the Workforce.
For Immediate Release (Las Vegas Nevada): The instant success of image generation by virtually anyone is overwhelming—and some might say addicting. Your imagination is suddenly free to explore art without restraint or limitation.
That, of course, is what is fueling the massive explosion of images, thoughts, concepts—and things we haven’t even thought of yet—on social media and online communities. However, once the initial infatuation is over, and the amazement wanes, the reality of using AI tools will come into focus.
Text to image is primarily a conceptual tool. It excels in rapid conceptualizing and idea testing. However, for things such as accurately depicting an object from all sides or getting specific results for revisions, it falls short.
What does this mean?
It means that after the initial infatuation is over, for those who are trying to make specific things or tell specific stories, there will be a lot of frustration with current AI limitations. A person compelled to move beyond these limitations has to teach themselves prompt engineering. Prompt specifics, such as weights and aspect ratios, and how they affect image creation, and this list goes on to include things such as styles, quality levels, image to image generation, blending, and seeds. The point, being that AI art generation is not as easy as it looks. Which is great news for AI artists that really refine their skill sets and can deliver the best images for art and storytelling. They are on task for what current technology allows.
But learning prompts and language associated with AI generation is only half the equation. The other half is the rapid evolution, deployment and deprecation of software and software platforms. There is literally an explosion of companies making text to image generators, and more getting funded every day. With venture capitalists speculating that AI related software is a trillion dollar market, and Microsoft investing 10 billion dollars into Open.AI, the path ahead could be exponential in the next several years. This new advent of technology promises to touch virtually every aspect of our lives.
Why are AI artists going to become part of the workforce? Simply put, virtually every product created is visually designed, and the AI tools for designing are going to require people with specialized knowledge and experience to get the best results, and that
has real value. Businesses pay when real value is delivered.
