In episode 856, the pervasive rise of AI-generated imagery, termed ‘promptography’, is explored. While AI can create images based on predefined prompts, its results often lack emotional depth and originality. The episode stresses that AI’s output, much like sophisticated autocorrect, is rooted in its database and lacks genuine creativity. It often fails at more intricate tasks, like recreating human emotions and poses. The discussion also alludes to the need for a “maximally curious AI” and deliberates on its potential in art. Ultimately, it underscores the irreplaceable value of human touch in artistry.
