Prime Matter, the writer of the upcoming System Shock remake, has discovered itself in a little bit of sizzling water after posting an AI-generated picture of SHODAN, the collection’ villain and quintessential evil AI. (Effectively, perhaps tied with GLadOS.) Whereas the idea in itself is not horrible – an AI portray an AI makes a form of sense – the put up has raised moral considerations about AI being utilized in an official capability and placing actual artists out of labor.

Curiously, System Shock developer Nightdive has gone on report stating that the put up was fully the work of the writer – I suppose if anybody can be cautious in regards to the doubtlessly catastrophic energy of AI, it would be the individuals actively making a sport about that very subject. Prime Matter has not backed down, pledging to maintain utilizing AI, however supposedly “by no means on the expense of utilizing expert individuals or their inventive abilities”.

Personally, I do not consider that for a second. These instruments could very nicely proliferate as extra sport corporations understand they’ll use them to get round paying artists, however that simply means individuals should maintain calling them out. The System Shock remake comes out later this month – maintain a watch out for any traces of ChatGPT in it.
