Art generated by machine learning algorithms and AI systems, like DALL-E and Stable Diffusion, are getting really good. An AI-generated piece won first place at the Colorado State Fair’s fine art competition this summer, and technologists are using artificial intelligence algorithms to expand classic artworks. The AI art scene even has its own folk legends and adult communities now.But as the AI art game gets better and better, artist platforms are struggling with where to draw the line between “real” art, done by human hands, and AI art, done with a few text prompts, a dataset, and an algorithm. One of the first places to see this AI art takeover was Fur Affinity, a social art platform for the furry fandom. And now, Fur Affinity is one of the first to ban AI art from its platform.
