Artificial intelligence (AI) has the ability to generate images and photographs that never actually existed. These images, often referred to as “AI-generated” or “synthetic” images, are created using machine learning algorithms and data sets.
One use of AI-generated images is to create nostalgic evocative photographs that never actually existed. These images can be used to evoke feelings of nostalgia or longing for a time or place that never existed.
Some people find these AI-generated images to be interesting and even compelling, while others find them disturbing or unsettling. Regardless of one’s personal feelings about them, these images demonstrate the growing capabilities of AI and its potential to create entirely new kinds of art and media.
