AI Art Tools - Big Help, or Big Danger?

AI Art Tools - Big Help, or Big Danger?

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few weeks, you’ll have seen social media – and most of the Internet, swamped with AI images. Some of your friends might have even posted them giving examples of what they might look like as a superhero, or as a Pixar character — all manners of interpretations of the human form. And yet, all of these images are not real, convincing as they are, they were created by a series of algorithms.

Technology is moving so fast these days, that we now have chatbots that can convincingly mimic human conversations, that can mimic our voice and can realistically produce ‘art’ - or can they?

On today’s show we’re going to be exploring that idea, and how these algorithms might potentially affect the income and hard-work of the ‘traditional’ artist.

Joining us a little later on the phone is Alan Quah - he’s a Malaysian Comic Artist whose works have graced the pages of Marvel, DC Comics, and Lucasfilm to name just a few and Lai Theng Seng from Studio Behind 90s, an illustrator who worked with Cuckoo and AirAsia, (he did one for Netflix as well) among many big brands.
