thing is though, we kinda "humanize" these algorithms by calling them ai. they are not artificially "intelligent" so much as they are algorithms trained using real people's creative works. you can study rembrandt, whereas a dataset that "learns" what elements of art are reminscent of rembrandt doesn't "know" anything.


There are some pretty strong arguments that this is fundamentally no different to what actual humans are doing when they learn from the things that they see. AFAIK there are humans who have "exact" memories and can exactly recreate scenes that they have seen - Mozart could famously do the same thing with music, even after only hearing it played once. So the "AI" is not much different in this than a rare kind of human.

It's not really worth bothering to argue whether these things are "intelligent" or not - our idea of what "intelligence" really means is changing every day right now specifically because these things exist. We have to try and learn to live with the existence of this technology without creating a dystopia, and that's the only thing that matters.

Anyway, I came here to say that MedicineStorm started a more recent thread on the topic which had some really long and detailed replies in it, so there should probably be a link to it here! I'll add a link in this post if I can find that thread again.

Broken link to GrafxKid's art sub (the banner art link). The text is correct, but the hyperlink isn't.

Did the rest of the art from Last Escape ever make it onto OGA?

I made a 16-bit-style protagonist character based on this guy.
