Artificial intelligence: a generator of Creation or an accelarator of Precarity for photography?

Artificial intelligence (AI), or generative intelligence, is at the heart of the public debate. AI offers creators impressive new creative functions, but they also infringe copyright on the images they train on, and the value generated is not shared with them, lastly, augur ill – instability or even disappearance – of certain photography professions. We will take a look at the current state of play and the prospects for regulating this technology.
