As with any new technology, there are things that need ironing out and generative AI comes with a few big wrinkles.
Not all image generators are created equally — read the fine print of whatever service you use to understand where they source their data from. The current Firefly generative AI model is trained on a dataset of Adobe Stock, along with openly licensed work and public domain content where copyright has expired. Other generative AI tools like Stable Diffusion may use a variety of available sources.
Be aware of potential bias. Many image generators allow you to flag a generated image if it shows bias around sex, race, gender, ability and other traits. Don’t be afraid to flag any images that seem off to you.
Generative AI is still far from perfect, but your willingness to speak up about potential issues and make your voice heard will help the technology develop the right way.
