AI Image Tools can Reproduce the Iconic ‘Mona Lisa! But Artists are Hating it

A new generation of AI image tools can reproduce an artist's signature style

A new generation of AI image tools can reproduce an artist's signature style. Artificial intelligence had been used to mimic style. AI is the latest and most vicious of the latest technologies. AI image tools can transform famous paintings into different art styles, or create brand new artworks from a text prompt, which may work by using a secret language. The UK-based the University of Sussex studies legal issues around AI-generated art.

AI-generated images can be used commercially. It can create a brand new image, or alter an existing one, from a text prompt. Recently an AI-generated living portrait of Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa began making the rounds on the web. AI programs are capable of churning out art on demand in response to a text prompt, using machine learning algorithms that have digested millions of labeled images from the web.  the facial movements from a series of frames to a static image, like the Mona Lisa.

AI image tools can reproduce the iconic images:

The latest trend is AI Art Generators which take simple text prompts and turn them into scary-cool photorealistic images. The artist doesn't view the AI images mimicking the artist's work as plagiarism because of how novel they look, and thinks that tools like the one used might prove useful for exploring new artistic ideas. It's not perfect, but when it works, it is much like the AI work these days, eerie and fascinating.

Algorithms have been used to generate art for decades, but as a new era of artificial intelligence art began, the company OpenAI announced DALL-E for ML to generate simple images from a string of text and images that could be used for commercial purposes. And later announced DALL-E 2, which can generate photos, illustrations, and paintings produced by human artists. It can create multiple realistic images and artwork from a single text prompt.

As the access to AI art generators begins to widen, more artists are raising questions about their capability to mimic the work of human creators. It also can't generate recognizable faces based on a name, even those only recognizable from artworks such as the Mona Lisa are generated only by creating distinctive variations. It could interpret gibberish and takes us away from how an AI tool should work and make decisions like a human.

The idea of using AI tools that feed on past artworks to create new artworks that make money feels wrong. When a user inputs some text for DALL-E to generate an image, it notes a series of key features. While it will be difficult to sue someone for using AI to copy their work, it is expected of generating lawsuits. And some creatives fear for their livelihoods.
