AI Evolution in Garment Decoration

Erich: Welcome to the show Marshall. Tell our listeners a little about yourself and your history in the industry.

Terry: Tell us about Midjourney and how our listeners might use it.

Erich: What would a decorator learn from the newsletter?

Terry: Is creating AI “stealing” someone’s art? What are the risks?

Erich: Once you create art using AI, do you own it?

Terry: For our FB viewers, can you show some examples?

Erich: Marshall, how can our listeners reach out to you for more information?

Erich and Terry discuss AI

Erich: Though I’m by no means as far down the rabbit hole of AI as some, I’ve found myself using various products and exploring some of the possibilities- for me, there are a few questions and concerns that are fairly universal as well as just an increasing awareness we all have that makes this a topic that’s fruitful for discussion. I’d like to toss around a few questions and get your experienced outlook on the way AI is being used in this industry and elsewhere as well as kick in a few of my own observations. Are you game to discuss this, Terry? 🙂

Q1: Being that we just got done talking to Marshall about Midjourney and other image-based AI questions, what are your comments and concerns on AI being used to generate art for print/decoration as well as secondary art like marketing materials?

(E’s notes – Tools, generative fill, Canva. Elementor, etc. vs/ direct AI to Digital Print chains)

Q2: Being a writer as you are, I’m sure you have seen the various uses of Large Language Models like OpenAI’s GPT models being used for ‘writing’- What have you seen and what’s your take on AI for text?

(E’s notes – ChatPDF/Support, self-trained models on documents, etc.)

Q3: In general, what are your chief concerns about the implementation in AI across the decoration space? What are your concerns about what you’ve seen so far?

(E’s notes – Creative Replacement vs. Reducing Labor)

Q4: Take a look into that crystal ball we keep for the end-of-the-year predictions, where do you see AI going in the decoration industry going forward, and what would you like to see?
