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.
What’s next for the fans of the Fallout universe? The hills of West Virginia in Fallout 76, of course. A prequel to all the previous games, the next part will introduce a wonderful world which is four-times bigger than the wasteland of Fallout 4. ‘Almost heaven, West Virginia.’
All-new lighting, rendering, and landscape technologies are here to help the team generate 6 unique regions with 16-times more details than any other previous Fallout games.
One more thing, all the other players, all the inhabitants are real players. The game is 100% online. About 4 years ago, the team came up with this idea that led to this big story of West Virginia.
Death never means the loss of progression. You’ll be in a world with dozens of players. A game bigger than any game Bethesda has ever done.
Like previous Fallout games, you can play solo or… Make your life easier by joining other players.
