Midjourney sued for copying 5,000 art styles:

About the lawsuit: A group of artists has filed a lawsuit against Midjourney, accusing the platform of infringing their intellectual property rights.

The artists allege that Midjourney has copied over 5,000 art styles from their works without permission or attribution.

They demand that Midjourney stop using their styles, remove the infringing content, and pay them damages.

The implications: The lawsuit raises important questions about the ethics and legality of using artificial intelligence to create art.

Who owns the rights to the generated artworks? How can artists protect their creative expression from being copied or exploited? How can users ensure that they are not violating any laws or norms when using Midjourney?

These are some of the issues that need to be addressed as AI becomes more prevalent and powerful in the art world.

Apparently, Midjourney used a treasure trove of artists' work to train their fancy algorithms, without asking permission.

They even had a special "Artists" spreadsheet, a virtual rolodex of the creatively plundered. Talk about rubbing salt in the artistic wounds!

Safeguarding Democracy in the Age of AI:

AI and Elections: The new year is crucial for representative democracy with over two billion people across 50+ countries, including the U.S., voting in a record-breaking number of democratic elections.

The Role of AI: OpenAI’s release of GPT-4, a significant leap in large language model generative AI capability, could potentially influence these elections. The enhanced understanding and creativity of these models can lead to mass disinformation.

The Threat of Disinformation: Groups or states can use AI to generate vast amounts of convincing text or deploy millions of chatbots to engage with social media users. This can exploit societal divisions and amplify existing tensions.

The Solution- Watermarking: To prevent disinformation from eroding democratic values, the U.S. must establish a global watermarking standard for text-based AI-generated content. This will help maintain the integrity of the democratic process.
