Artists on the Lensa AI app and the future of art
A new app that creates digital portraits is generating buzz among artists. Lensa AI produces artistic profile pictures using images uploaded by account holders. The artificial intelligence has raised concerns about privacy and ethics. The process has also led to questions about how technology and art intersect, and what that means for artists and the future of art.
This hour, we're joined by artists who share their take. Our guests:
- Magnus Champlin, Rochester creative
- Allison Roberts, visual artist
- Ya'qub Shabazz, owner of Sankofa Studios, and founding member of the 9th Floor Artists Collective
