Doesn't they say the same thing about photography when it was emerging? ;)

Agreed. This is just depressing and is a detriment to society. If this keeps advancing at its current rate, good art will be so trivial to generate that it won't be special anymore. Art will slowly morph into a banal distraction, with creating an original piece being as easy as applying an Instagram filter. The role of the human artist will change from a craftsperson to someone who picks a bunch of parameters, gives it to the AI, and chooses the best output. This type of technology is a threat to the very existence of art as a craft, will completely devalue artwork, and will make the journey of training to become an artist obsolete. I hate these researchers for what they're doing to a field that I love.

I disagree. There will always be demand for real artists. Like any other digital software, this is just a tool with the possibility to help artists create compelling worlds faster and add realism that would otherwise have taken days to make using other methods. As a 3D character artist, I would love to use this to create quick backdrops to place my characters in to enhance final renders.

Have you tried simulating beach waves in Houdini? How hard is the task? One thing is certain – the result can be extremely beautiful! Lucas Stringhetti has presented his little experiment with beautiful butterflies, fishes and a dinosaur skeleton.

Special thanks to my friends who helped me to obtain this result with many tips and suggestions, especially for Raphael Vinicius who animated the butterflies.
