Research: bias creeps into new AI generated art

Published

As the internet excites over AI-generated art, concerns grow over how the technology reflects biased data

A seagull attacking a man with spaghetti, a skateboarding dinosaur, and a cup of coffee that contains the universe.

These are just some of the odd prompts that people have given to new AI systems, for an often unusual, yet incredibly detailed image in return.

Whilst majority of the AI art you are likely seeing on social media comes from Open-A-I’s, DALL E mini, other notable artists are Open-A-I’s DALL-E 2, and Google Research’s Imagen

Google research shows the technology appears to involve “several social biases and stereotypes”.

But experts fear these systems are also capable of producing disinformation based off the gender and cultural biases from the data they feed off.

An OpenAI online document titled ‘Risks and Limitations’, which shows these biases with an example of how a text description of a CEO, for instance, only shows images of predominantly white men.

Researchers are still learning how to measure bias in their technology and expect to make changes to systems as it learns more.

Twitter has stacked on $12.5 billion in debt, and this move hopes to increase subscription revenue to meet Musk’s obligations.

Musk also announced that Twitter would start sharing ad revenue with creators for “ads that appear in their reply threads”, but didn’t provide further detail.
