The internet is gradually becoming a place where nothing seems unfeasible. Now, with the advent of Artificial Intelligence, users are able to stretch the boundaries of digital creations and produce innovative and realistic art. One such form is gathering popularity on social media and has helped people visualize what was once only in their minds.
We are discussing AI-generated images. Through the use of artificial intelligence, artists are now able to render nearly everything as realistically as possible on the screen. AI has accomplished everything, from transforming various communities to providing never-before-seen avatars to prominent figures. Speaking of which, a new line of merchandise depicts how some of the world’s wealthiest figures would appear if they were impoverished.
The worlds wealthiest include Tesla CEO Elon Musk, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, former US President Donald Trump, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, and Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett.
In the photographs, the ‘Slumdog millionaires’ can be seen clad in tatters and standing in what appears to be a slum area.
The images, which were created by a digital artist named Gokul Pillai using the artificial intelligence program ‘Midjourney,’ were posted to the artist’s Instagram account with the caption “Slumdog Millionaires. (Did I overlook anyone on this list?)”
While the post has already garnered over 10,000 likes and numerous views, users are also sharing their reactions in the comment section. A user commented, “Yeah, you missed Ali Express,” while another commented, “This is gold!” But Elon is the only one who still appears wealthy despite being impoverished.”
“It’s remarkable how real they appear…” more like Slumdog Millionaire,” commented another.
Notably, the artist’s Instagram account features a plethora of other AI-infused works in which he has explored a variety of concepts.
