Robin Sloan Flags “Unflagged Enthusiasm” of Latest AI Image Models

“I am waiting for a system that will say, ‘eh, I can’t really draw that,’ or, better yet, ‘no, I refuse to draw that.’”
– American fiction writer Robin Sloan, flagging the “unflagged enthusiasm” with which new AI image models accept free-form text prompts and render “whatever’s been requested, no matter how absurd or overwrought.” “Nearly all presentations of art produced with these models include the text prompt,” Sloan observes. “The pleasure, it seems, is not in the image; rather, it’s in the spectacle of the computer’s interpretation.”
