        Wrong. The future is each company having a tiny AI team for each aspect of AI they need to focus on. This small team of a few people will crank out gigantic amounts of content, spend their time tuning it and picking out the best, and THEN they'll farm it out to (a small desperate pool) artists for clean up, for pennies on the dollar. That's the future artists can look forward to.

        But hey, at least pixel art games will get to make a gigantic comeback, and homebrew will be bigger than ever before.

        I'm not hiring them, I'm just offering them the job that got them fired to rub salt in the wounds. None of them would take it

              he didn't say art director, he said artist. also, blizzard pays slave wages and always has. it's the pedigree of their name that lands you a job anywhere else, or it used to at least.
              further, you're missing the point entirely, homie. you're getting paid 15 bucks an hour to do absolutely nothing and you are using company time to make even more money doing the things you actually want to do.

      The big issue is everyone starts out with low skill jobs in order to gain experience and clout so they can move into the higher skill jobs.

      When you start cutting all these entry artist positions it means in 20 years nobody will have the skills to fill the higher skill roles and we’ll just have a bunch of shitters who have no idea what they’re doing making the big decisions.

        IT is like this, most people get their start in help desk then branch out to more skilled positions.

        I work in a huge IT company and it's becoming a shitshow. We've had our own ChatGPT solution for a while now and it's only useful for the bottom feeder zoomers that barely know how computers even work. Then you have the Indians and Filipinos that treat it like gospel so you can't trust them with anything remotely complex or risky, they'll misinterpret vague English and frick everything up and ask you to kindly tell them the next steps.

        And companies love this shit because they can pay them $2.25 an hour to do it. My company is straight up redefining our idea of ticket resolution to inflate the numbers to make up for how many tickets we just abandon or kick to our partners lately.

        btw what happened with the Gamestop vs Reddit shitstorm from a couple years back? did that people became rich or are they still holding?

        • 1 month ago
          Anonymous

          Gamestock was undervalued at like 2$ a stock because it was overshorted, it spiked to 40-50$, smart people sold off their 20x and morons held on because they think they could magically make the stock worth infinity dollars and someone would buy it at that price, and then it slowly declined as more people realized that wasnt happening. It is now worth something like 15$, which means that people who bought in at 2$ and are holding to this day are merely at a 7x.

          Of course, there are also morons that bought the peak, but it is better to think of them the way you would think of a wild ox that walks into an abatoir and hooks himself up to the assembly line.

They're cutting 3 people (total # of people on art is 6, so cutting 50%), and he told me it's to save money since concept art can be done nearly exclusively with AI + touch ups. Brother literally has a massive notepad file with like, 500 lines of different prompts, categorized for specific attributes.

                I can't speak for other studio's obvious, but it's happening at his because of ai.

    I fricking hate the homosexuals on here who will say AI is okay, like it's not, I'm sorry you have a shitty blue color job and resentment for artists but eventually you're gonna make it and then you'll have to worry about AI replacing you and it's not fun.
    Even if you aren't threatened by it you shouldn't fricking support it like sure Novel AI fat porn of your favorite character is cool but it's all the same and there's no meaning or soul behind it.

    i feel like I'm the only one screaming into the darkness about this AI shit and i hate it. This WILL destroy us VERY quickly.

    all the discussions i see here and in the right-leaning circles i partake in seem to have reached the moronic consensus that AI is LE BASED because it's sticking it to the leftist trannies. where we should have been reclaiming the realm of art and creativity and returning it to rational and religiously inspires people - as was the norm for 99% of history - we're patting ourselves on the back as we OWN THE LIBS while AI makes obsolete the very things that made life worth it. People are suicidal and sterile and insane these days because they're disconnected from the challenges that give life meaning. We like effort and overcoming adversity and sweat equity. It's why we know that old hand drawn animation is instinctively more soulful than 3d. It's that times 1,000. Put another way, it's the difference between training hard and climbing everest vs paying a few Gs to get helicoptered to the top. good art satisfies us because we know it took dedication and skill and collaboration to make. We're satisfied either as creators or observers. AI is suicidally automated

    It's going to frick everything else up too believe me. You thought diversity hiring was bad, that's nothing compared to the coming AI induced competency plague. NO ONE will know how to do anything, degrees will be even more usless than they are now since you can just chatGPT all your assignments. Oh a tool to detect chatGPT use in essays? That's okay we just updated the algorithm so that won't work anymore. So now there's zero incentive to actually be skilled. "Sorry sir, you can't get your surgery, the machine is down. Hmm? No we don't have any surgeons at this hospital. We just use the machine. The machine that's down. No, I just press the buttons and stuff."

      Economy is fricked too. I had concluded that while marxism is moronic at all times, capitalism isn't beyond reproach. It clearly worked during a certain sweet spot, but it eventually leads to shit like central banking, usury, fractional reserve banking, driving down wages via mass importation of immigrants and all sorts of social israelitery to increase profit margins. "of course you shouldn't get married goyim, if you get married you'll share a car, a refrigerator, a mortgage, etc. stay single forever and i can charge you both for each of those and make twice the money!"

      Capitalism favors competition which is great until you remember that someone eventually wins a competition and then eats the loser, leading to monopolies. So you have situations where all 15 shampoo brands on the shelf are owned by the same parent company and all "competition" is fake and gay leaving you with no alternatives.

      So capitalism is mos concerned with increasing profit margins. This is where we're fricked because there's no greater potential profit margin than the literally free "labor" of ai. And if you think that everyone will be happy being unemployed and laying about while AIs do all our work then you're moronic, or Andrew Yang, or both.

      So we've leapt from "we better fix capitalism and tighten up the system to sustain GENUINE competition in the free market" to "this whole system is fricked and we have no conception of what comes next." Because awful as it is AI isn't going away. It's too convenient. It would be like getting rid of electricity or the concept of literacy. They're too widespread and everyone has a stake, no one would wanna delete those. I happen to think all human society would be immediately improved if the internet were permanently deleted, but like the use of AI it will never, ever be done

Vast majority of people don't even know how electricity works, or really the vast majority of anything, yet society blunders on. All that will change is people will rely on AI instead of spending years of their life learning a niche skill and working on projects that an AI will be able to churn out in seconds.

      The AIpocalypse will happen, but it will be a phase, and completely avoidable.
      It's already happening to open neural networks. They're being cross fed with its own output resulting in worse and worse results, and it all has to be manually filtered out or it can and will destroy the model completely.
      If AI is to have a chance to survive as a tool, it's going to need continuous, aggressive development (because using one model will become stale) and strict oversight.
      And that requires a lot of work, and a lot of original input.

      If anything, it's evetually going to reach a point where we simply drop AI because of this, or it'll fade back to become a regular tool instead of the craze we're seeing now.

        Because they're not necessary anymore. Corpo Drone #4 who makes $7.50 an hour will do the prompts with corporate mandates. The drone will make art that would take dozens of artists hundreds of hours to do, and they'll do it inside of a few days. Nobody will make money except for the executives and the lawyers.

On top of visiting a ton of cool places. One of the better options if you're STEM since your chances of getting stationed anywhere outside the US is rare.

              The entire point of this argument is that AI poses a massive threat to nearly every kind of job imaginable.

                You simply do not understand what AI/ML is.

                In order to train a model you need a near perfect dataset. There is a reason that the only industries that are at risk comprise of those where there are billions of curated samples that are perfectly tagged.

                Do you wonder why AI/ML figured our Art and Coding so fast but seemingly everyone is stuck with Self-Driving cars?

                That's really the cusp of the issue here, a general lack of understanding of what AI is.

                Remember when Elon Musk was saying full self-driving cars would be around the corner ack in 2016 and we're now in 2024. Yea, it's easy to get to a Minimum Viable Product and have it fly around and do basic things. But there's a reason self-driving cars are stuck at Level 2-3 and nowhere near Level 4-5.

                The real world is a b***h compared to the extremely controlled world of anything that exists online. Again, this is just a general misunderstanding of what AI/ML is. It isn't even AI at all. Look into how models are formulated, and you'll understand why this is ludicrous.

      >blizzard pays slave wages
      Who in the actual frick believes this? That company is so tied up in political bureaucracy that they would immediately get slapped by California courts for underpaying their employees. The only "complaint" about payments I see is that the severance packages are not ideal.

    It's for the best actually, that way the gaming industry WILL heal.
    So i'm totally OK with AI coming to take their jobs completely, just like these degenerate "artists" wanted the blue collar workers to die of hunger and have their children taken away by the Govt. to cut their balls off and call them "girls".
    All these ANTIFA troony furries and their friends only belong in one place in this WHOLE planet: the hardcore gay porn industry.
    Not in the video game industry or in society at all, and it would be an insult for the actual crazies to put these degenerates in the looney bin.
    Only in the hardcore GAY porn industry they can call home.
    Communism, diversity, environmentalism, the 50+ genders and feminism+ are all gay porn-tier ideologies.
    I will be happy to see all of them getting fricked in the ass, hellraiser style by some black leather-armor wearing dominator while they are calling for Lenin, Mao Zedong and the other communist idols to come join the holy party.
