Will the profession of an artist disappear in the future?
For example, when using an artificial intelligence-based image generator such as Midjourney provided by Discord or a chatbot such as ChatGPT, a machine that shows clear answers and results in a short time based on big data and algorithms is generally compared to humans. You can feel the fear that you will never be able to catch up.
I also knew that in areas where human subjectivity and emotion are the main focus, such as art, machines would grow to a level that would scare humans last. However, the speed of growth was much faster than expected, and the subjectivity, complexity, sensory domain, and morality of the results generated by artificial intelligence are in some ways superior to humans.
Because in any realm, as human beings intervene, there are elements of corruption, injustice, and prejudice. When I think about this, I also think that it might be better for a machine to intervene and make a fair judgment and show the result. So cognitive people these days argue that politicians should be the first to change to artificial intelligence.
However, after experiencing the chatbot, I confirmed the reality of the fear that I had only heard in words and began to think more about the nature of art. And that provided an opportunity to leak the questions and answers below.
Q, Will the profession of an artist disappear in the future?
It's unlikely that the profession of an artist will disappear entirely in the future. While technological advancements may change the way art is created and consumed, human creativity and expression are likely to remain important aspects of society and culture.
Q. So, which artists will survive in the future?
It's difficult to predict exactly which artists will survive in the future, as this will depend on a variety of factors such as changing tastes, cultural trends, and technological advancements. However, it's likely that artists who are able to adapt and innovate will be more successful in the long term.
Q.Can AI Painters Beat human artists?
The capabilities of AI-powered painters are rapidly improving, and they are already able to create impressive works of art. However, it's unlikely that AI painters will be able to completely replace human artists, as there are certain qualities and skills that are unique to human creativity and expression.
The conclusion is that artificial intelligence learns a vast amount of data at a level that humans cannot handle based on algorithms, and derives accurate, perfect, and always fair results. That technology is the same concept as an artist's added art material, it is also a strong proof that artificial intelligence cannot be a real artist. And true artists create works of art with a pure heart and passion, based on numerous factors such as their experience, philosophy, soul, knowledge, and attitude. At the same time as it is created, it becomes a record, a history, and a life. This will prove why mankind cherishes works of art, cultural relics and traditions through the generations.
Rather, in the era of artificial intelligence, keywords such as human emotion, feeling, experience, humanity, mental world, harmony and inclusion will become the mainstream as part of a counteraction. Therefore, it seems that art based on creativity that activates, reveals and contemplates these keywords will become more and more deeply embedded in human life.
Actually, when I think about it, when I was young, visuals weren't that popular. However, modern people know the importance of visuals and create new wealth based on it. Most of all, any people have adapted to a life dominated by visuals, seeing, hearing, crying, and laughing on a small phone screen. In other words, in the future, visual elements will be strengthened in more and more areas, and the life of an influencer who can create such content, that is, can use visual elements to attract the public's popularity, will become more common.
Then, besides these influencers, what is the life of a painter like? It seems that painters will no longer be obsessed with analog and freely spread their creative wings, crossing digital and analog. In that sense, it would be helpful for painters to learn digital and become more familiar with these factors in mind in advance.
