Artificial intelligence certainly has a topic of discussion this year, both technically and ethically. Like every technology it has its advantages and disadvantages. for photographers, Some AI-based tools are sent from the sky. For example, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve used Adobe Smart Selections Photo shop And the lightroom since its launch. Also, there are some AI-generated artworks that are just that surprising.

But thanks AI and This interesting project by Albert YeseltasAt least I can see what they would look like if they lived long enough to be old.

Stock images of AI-generated humans are available for licensing for the first time: This is one of the breakthroughs in the AI ​​generated content industry. It’s not in my top ten simply because there are stories that I personally preferred – but it had to be mentioned.
