Is A.I. Ruining Social Media for Artists?
If you've browsed fanart on Instagram or other social media platforms, it's almost impossible that you haven't come across Artbreeder images. These perfectly crafted, photo-realistic portraits are often made to resemble famous characters from animated films and television programs. Portraits like these also often resemble real artwork, made by real people, but they are not. If you see an image with the caption "made using Artbreeder" then you should know that the image you're seeing was generated by a complex A.I. program designed to produce artificial artwork. Artbreeder is a GAN Breeding program that allows any user to create unique pieces of art by having the A.I's system combine other images already in its database. These pieces of art are quite literally bred, with the traits and qualities of other images being endlessly recombined and changed to create them.
The New Virtual Normal – Memberships & Subscriptions
Here i go with my second story on Vocal again for a challenge and again just a few hours before the deadline : )) Deciding to join Vocal+ was a big question mark ? as i am still not ready to publish as much to justify the Plus Badge; but couldn’t resist as the “Membership” ecosystem fancied me a lot. Even though the term is no new to me but i was not aware of its monumental growth as a full-fledged business service offering starting with a minimalist approach catering to individual short-term needs to complex long-term corporate needs. Now, what are these NEEDS ?
Social media and its positive side
The presence of social media has added a lot of tremendous achievements to the media world at large. Its value and relevance can't be undermined. The rate at which it gradually revolved and evolved has been alarming. There is virtually no place on earth the presence of social media isn't felt. Or maybe i should say 90 percent of the countries in the world have the presence of social media.
Such a pain in the bots
Seriously, am I the only one who can not stand these damn bots ? you know all those long or short automated comments and the fake contents all over social media.
Death of the Masses?
A Shepard herds sheep much like a corporation does the masses... In a more modern perspective, one would ask what would musicians be without record labels? Or even imagining what would tech be without Apple or Microsoft? Corporations such as these have existed for decades without any real check on which way they may be shepherding the perceivable multitudes. Apps such as YouTube are propagated by the Mega entity Google and Instagram is kept alive by Facebook. What is to be said about these apps that engulf the user and more of their data?
The Cult of Social Media
The promise of large-scale globally-connecting projects, all tied to technological innovations, is always to foster understanding between peoples and cultures.
Comparison: Unfounded and Paradoxical
We all know social media sucks sometimes. No matter which "bright side" you've found in the magnitude of the internet, be it immediacy of connection and information, educational resources, or friendships, the internet and social media have polarized the world's societies, misinformed the masses, and changed human behavior forever by means of manufactured FOMO.
Randonautica: Reality Shifter or Real Time Waster?
If you have not heard about the sensational app Randonautica, then you must not have a Tik Tok or troll YouTube much. More popular with those under 30, the app is a fancy random number generator and an experiment in mind-matter interaction. The app translates quantum random numbers into GPS coordinates. The idea is to control your experience by thinking of an “intent” before and during the coordinate calculation. So what does this all mean?
The Youtuber who’s raising the vibration of our planet.
Did you know that we are utterly connected to our home planet & that it's one big electric healing circuit of energy? Scientists are beginning to understand more about the effect of these healing energies our planet has on us humans & how our own vibrational energies are connected to it, it’s no wonder why we call it ‘’Mother Earth’’.
I found that over the quarantine caused by the global Covid-19 pandemic, that TikTok is a GREAT distraction from reality!! Which due to current circumstances, is greatly needed. And one day,l while I was on this app, I discovered possibly one of the geekiest and funniest videos out there, that for some reason never went viral! It is a video by a creator named @adamkrimmel on TikTok who made a video on Diogenes of Sinope. Now this might sound odd, but hear me out: he was a real badass guy with the coolest character arc!!
