Input: I work with AI-generated art often and encounter several challenges such as unpredictable and sometimes unexpected results from AI algorithms, which make it challenging to connect with the audience on a deep level. Achieving the right balance between human creativity and AI assistance is tricky. Striking a balance between creating unique pieces and reproducing AI-generated art is complex. That's why I use Photoshop, Canva, and other mobile phone applications to fix mistakes. For example, I remove unwanted objects and watermarks, and I add elements and combine images using Canva.
Despite these challenges, AI offers new avenues for experimentation, collaboration, and creativity, allowing me to explore innovative ways of creating art. Artists need to learn and understand the technical aspects of AI and machine learning, which can be intimidating if they are not familiar with these fields.
