Generative AI is overhauling the way we work and live, giving superpowers to ordinary individuals to create smart copy and stunning images in fractions of a second. But at whose expense?
In this episode of Techtonic, host Chris Stokel-Walker speaks to Karla Ortiz, an artist from Puerto Rico who has drawn for Marvel, HBO, ILM, Universal and more. She has also launched a lawsuit against three large generative AI platforms, alleging mass copyright infringement of her work.
She tells Chris how she felt when she learned her artistic expression had allegedly been co-opted, and what impact it’s had on her, both professionally and personally.
