Epic’s CEO says he will not ban AI art from his platform

THE CEO of Epic Games, the creator of Fortnite, has said he doesn’t want to “gatekeep” the AI ​​from his platform.

Tim Sweeney tweeted why art created with AI was and will continue to be allowed on his platform.

ArtStation is Epic's platform that will enable AI art.


ArtStation is Epic’s platform that will enable AI art.

Epic owns a number of platforms including the Epic Games Store and ArtStation, which the tweets refer to.

He began the series of tweets by saying, “AI has made amazing strides in the past year, from the dreamlike synthesis of images that approach the perceptual complexity of mammals, to complex streams of text connected in seemingly logical ways. Seemingly!”

In later tweets, he acknowledged that current AI generators often violate copyright law by copying the works of existing artists.

He wants people to be able to choose whether their art can be used for AI or whether or not they see AI art while browsing, but will not prevent AI art from being shown on the platform.

Sweeney claims he doesn’t “want to stifle innovation,” which is why he allows the AI ​​to continue despite resistance from artists on his platform.

He brings up the court case between Epic Games and Apple when Apple tried to ban Epic Games’ payment system from the platform.

He wrote, “I don’t want to be the you can’t use AI company or the you can’t make AI company.”

The tweets further claim that banning AI on ArtStation would violate fair use law.

Sweeney wrote, “We don’t lock out AI by default because that would make Epic a ‘You can’t make AI’ gatekeeper by default and prohibit uses that would fall within the fair use rules of copyright law.”

This decision has obvious implications for Epic and its other platforms.

While there is currently resistance to AI in the art community, there is also a movement to prevent AI from entering video games.

AI is already being used to add voice to dialogue in games, which people say removes the emotional elements from the performance.

Sweeney has stated multiple times that he doesn’t want Epic to ban AI from its platforms, then it makes sense that the same would apply to the Epic Games Store.
