😧 Media Company Lays Off Writers To Switch To AI Content

Got some juicy controversy ahead. But then again, not really a new thing is it?

G/O Media is the most recent company to dump human writers for AI ones. They laid them off this week, and already started to post AI generated content.

Crazy timing, right? Let’s just say, people aren’t thrilled.

They’re not the first company to do it, and definitely not the first to get this kind of backlash.

  • CNET and Buzzfeed both took a leap of faith into AI generated content… might’ve been a premature leap cus the writing is meh.

  • And of course, Hollywood writers are still in an uproar over AI being trained on their own writing to generate new scripts.

And just like the guinea pigs before G/O Media, the writing is plagued with errors, and is an all around snooze fest 😴.

What’s the point? AI is still in the beginning stages. We’ve made leaps, but it still needs human input.

🎨 Midjourney Launches Panning Feature

The leading AI image generator Midjourney, is on fire and cannot cool down. They just dropped a new feature called “Panning”.

It allows you to click up/down/left/right arrows to expand the image in that direction. Say hello to your wildest panorama dreams. You can even change your prompt mid extension to add anything you want to extended image.

How to do it:

  • Clicking an arrow extends your image in the corresponding direction

  • The "/settings" command and selecting "Remix mode" allows you to change your prompt as you extend your image

Another sick feature from the best AI image generator on the market right now. What baffles me is how they can keep pumping out great stuff like this with a tiny team of only 11 people in total.
