AI: Pictures of Science
If you are anything like me (which I suspect you aren’t and may be offended at the suggestion, but humor me for a moment) you are enthralled by the photography of National Geographic and similar publications. Their unparalleled skill in capturing nature and life at its finest is breathtaking. I wonder, though, how well they hold to their sense of responsibility.
Are they representing their subjects fairly? Is the practice of their art misinforming their audience?
Do science and nature photographers have a responsibility to be fair and honest? Can they be allowed the same artistic license granted to pure artists?
