This week, Cherlynn and Devindra dive into the world of AI art with Senior Editor Dan Cooper and Creative Futurist John LePore. We know that Dall-E and Midjourney can create really compelling images from a little bit of text, but do they owe anything to all the images they’ve trained on? We also examine the deplorable state of Meta and Cherlynn gushes about the new Pixel Buds Pro. Stay tuned until the end of the show for our talk with Joshua Stiksma, Design Director of moss 2, which discusses the current state of VR game development.
