This nails the problem of AI art for me.

I think those who say that there will always be a demand for bespoke art severely underestimate just how many people will choose saving money over paying for talent every time.

it's a tough time out there in general in tech (and elsewhere tbh), but this seems like a noticeable spike in crypto compared to what we've been seeing over the past year. not to mention noteworthy that three of these companies had already done substantial layoffs

It's not hard to see that a lot of "progress" in the US is cosmetic only. It's new flooring, paint and furniture in a house that needed to have the foundation replaced. Little fixes have been made, but centuries of deep, structural rot has never been rooted out.

The first AI model? Shudu is made and modeled in the same exact program I use. Where does it say that sheโ€™s the first AI model? Your reservations about Cameron are definitely wanted but Iโ€™m not understanding how she equates to AI when she was made in Daz Studio and ZBrush.

Working on some refactoring for Koype. Before, I'd pass the token all the way through methods, which made me a bit uncomfortable. Now I do some resolution of the token (asserting expected access) and now I use that serialized form as how things can be rendered. Need to make sure things like generation information don't break, heh.
