Japanese art, sites with content exacerbate the principles of art generated by artificial intelligence

Last week, the drawings of the anime characters generated by artificial intelligence

viral

in Japan.It was funny in this trend that artificial intelligence came up with technically impressive art, which despite this is wrong in strange details, such as the characters eating ramen with their hands.MEM inspired human artists to draw parodies and comics with good -natured humor, but not all applications of AI art are so well received.

Example of graphics ramen AI:

Because AI graphics have improved in the last few months, discussions about ethics have increased the claim of creative ownership of AI art, the use of works of art published online for learning AI without the artist’s consent and other sensitive problems.This month, Japanese pages with graphics/content Fanza, DLSITE, SKEB and Niconico issued to users statements regarding their principles regarding art generated by artificial intelligence.

On October 7, Fanza published an advertisement for registered creators of Dujin circles stating that she blocked the sale of applications between October 7-10, which is considered to be generated by artificial intelligence.All applications generated by artificial intelligence must be marked as such.

DLSITE also announced on October 7 that it temporarily suspends the sale of works generated by artificial intelligence, because it develops an appropriate distinction between human work and artificial intelligence.This is to prevent unnecessary restrictions in the future, because many areas in the development of AI technology are currently in a legal gray zone.

On October 13, Skeb published

tweet

, in which he informs that he will introduce methods to make it difficult for scraping tools and bots to extract works of art on SKEB for AI educational programs.

Niconico

announced

On October 19, that works generated by artificial intelligence will be excluded from the service monetization program.Although the service will not limit the creation or dissemination of AI works, users will not be able to earn on automatically generated work.However, if AI graphics are only a small element of the whole work, and the rest is created by the person who publishes it, it will still apply for monetization.Users can also earn on the results of artificial intelligence if they have developed artificial intelligence themselves.

As Niconico writes in his blog post, the reason for these distinctions is that the coinization program has been designed to financially support creative work.The work that is produced without any work is contrary to the goal of the program.

What are your thoughts on the division between artificial intelligence and human art and where technology is going in the future?
