“Artificial intelligence” is banned in the world of art and photography

Last minute The world stood up after Putins decision in

OpenAI artificial intelligence system developed by DALL-E and similar systems react in the world of art and photography. pulling.

Winning many different competitors recently OpenAI signed DALL-E technology continues to evolve. For those who are not judges, this system can turn simple sentences written into realistic designs / drawings / photographs. The system, which has been developed for a long time and can produce very realistic results at the last stage, also has the capacity to add objects to certain photos or change the faces of the people in the photos. The system is not content with just giving a photo result for the entered sentences. It can bring many different variations to people.

This and similar systems Although they offer impressive results, they also garner reactions on some issues.. In fact, serious prohibitions have begun to come for the results / outputs produced by these systems. The latest step in this regard is from the world stock photography giants. Getty Images scored. Company banned the entry of content produced by artificial intelligence systems to the platform. There is no direct announcement, but Shutterstock It is said that the company has started to implement a similar decision.


Now people Stable Diffusion, DALL-E and midjourney It cannot put and sell the content prepared on its systems with Getty Images. Getty Images explains the process specifically. he’s taking this step because he’s worried about his legal part. The above artificial intelligence systems are trained directly with real photos and designs. This is exactly what the company is concerned about, making the following statement on the subject:

“There are open questions about the copyright of the output from these models, and there are unaddressed rights issues with the image and metadata used to train the models.” The firm will openly prefers to close the door already for potential copyright lawsuits that may be opened.

According to a statement, the datasets used in these systems contain millions of copyrighted photos. However, no one knows about it. Most of the companies use the visuals in the training process. It pulls from Google, that is, from millions of websites.


Meanwhile, there is another side to the process. For example, FurAffinity, one of the art and design-oriented platforms, also decided to ban images signed by artificial intelligence. FurAffinity does this step differently from Getty Images. threw in to protect real artists.

Artificial intelligence and machine learning applications (DALL-E, Crayon etc.), exemplifies the work of other artists to create content, a spokesperson for FurAffinity states that in this respect, they want to protect real artists and their real works.

The process also applies to photographers. For example, an impressive landscape photograph often requires walking many kilometers, setting the right time, and processing the photograph for hours on the computer. New generation systems, on the other hand, can produce a landscape photograph in seconds with the data learned from the photographs of photographers who have really put effort into the process. Photographers do not want real photos to be sold side by side with these virtual photos.
