Filling the internet with AI-created images will harm future AIs
The performance of image-generating AIs drops when trained using images previously created by other AIs, which can cause them problems given the proliferation of these images
November 21, 2022
The popularity of text-to-image AIs could be their own downfall: if the images they produce proliferate too much, they could contaminate the datasets new models are trained on, hurting performance.
AI tools like DALL-E 2Midjourney and Stable Diffusion can create images of anything people ask for, and their images are increasingly being shared online.
Such AIs improve their results by training on datasets of billions of images and …
