Hate it out of the principle of it being creative. Machines should not be creative and take away the joy of being creative from humans. Creativity is the biggest joy from making something. Even if you work with your hands, doing some things creatively as opposed to doing them by the manual is always more fun. We even let kids be creative for fun. AI should serve humans, not enjoy itself instead of humans, and then steal the enjoyment from people. Its like if you made AI that makes tiktoks. People would not like it because part of the fun is seeing people enjoy themselves and think of different ideas, idea sharing.
>But AI is just a tool
Did you design any of those cars? Did you have that image of the car in your mind? No? Then shut your fucking mouth, all you did is type "Steampunk car conceptart" into Midjourney. Every other artist in any other field if they made this car either as sculpture, or drawing, or digital art, or 3D model, or as a tory made of crab shells, they had this design of the car in their minds, all of them, maybe it changed a bit while they were making it, but none of them "just made steampunk car". Even normies know it and hate it, which is why AI tagged pictures get on average less then if you did not tag that picture as AI. People do not want future where creativity is outsourced to machines, that to most people sounds worse then living in Matrix Metaverse owned by Meta. The threat does not come from people preferring AI art, but from AI art becoming on average indinstingushable from human art. Not just that the average person could be fooled into believing AI art is real art, but that there will be no artists who will not be asked if it was made by AI. Normies and people in general have prejudice against bots, AI and everything artificial, especially bots in online discussions, people will always prefer human art over AI art, the problem however is that it will become impossible for people to know it.
