Plagiarism has gotten out of hand and is creeping into your computer’s cursor.
Artificial intelligence chatbots are all the rage these days. Websites such as ChatGPT and DALL-E are used to generate images, have conversations and, unfortunately, cheat and plagiarize.
The use of these various sources has some serious ethical drawbacks. Entering prompts into a chatbot to write an essay and later submit it for academic credit or financial gain is highly unethical.
On the surface, these websites are a lot of fun. I used these sources to have ChatGPT tell jokes (which are usually pretty corny) or input the most ridiculous things into the DALL-E image generator to generate random stuff. Create (a Vitruvian man, but a demonic hamster).
This is especially true when someone takes copyrighted works, puts them into an image generator, and sells them for personal gain. Not only is it ethically wrong, it’s also legally wrong.
Debbie Stinson, marketing and public relations manager at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum, said: “There are years when the work of artists like the Beatles is no longer copyrighted. increase.”
Generating images and text via these AI chatbots sounds fun and gamey, but this is definitely a very serious topic and should be used with respect. It is ethically and legally important to give credit to artists/musicians who have inspired work created via one of our chatbots.
Even if the AI chatbot is changing the art to something “new”, if it was inspired by a previously copyrighted work, the artist should be cited and credited for the inspiration. I have.
The music industry, especially rock and roll juggernaut Led Zeppelin, is full of examples of this. The band has had some pretty bold rip-offs from old blues his musicians, and Muddy Waters is his one of the biggest cases of that.
This situation occurred long before these AI generators were launched and became widespread, but the underlying problem still exists. If your work is inspired by someone else’s work, you should give them clear credit and acknowledgment in or around the work itself.
As a musician myself, I know it would be incredibly frustrating if I released a song I wrote and someone stole it and they made a lot of money off it.
On the contrary, I think these AI image generators are great catalysts for creativity. If you’re like me and struggle with drawing/painting, you can use these AI generators to get some inspiration for what I’m trying to draw.
“The upside of things is that a huge world of imagination opens up to people who have creativity but lack the skills,” Stinson said.
As I said earlier, it’s pretty hard to start painting, so I often don’t participate. But with advanced AI, you can enter different styles of art. This allows you to tap into or completely mimic a very cool realm of inspiration.
“If I had a definition of ‘I used AI to formulate my idea, but then I built it from a blank canvas,’ that would be fine. If you’re feeling , you can take inspiration from what it says,” said experiential learning designer Chris Lavoy.
This has to do with Stinson’s words about inspiration and piracy. If you use AI to influence your own work (provided it’s not someone else’s work), it’s a great tool for creativity.
A line is drawn when someone has their job stolen and loses potential income or opportunities because of it.
The world of technology is changing rapidly, and we all need a citizenship to encourage our communities and everyone in the world to stop using and piracy of the works people have spent their entire lives creating. I have a legal obligation.
