I just found this while browsing Russian Television :

It has pictures. Much like art has been through the millennia, done with today's digital media.

https://www.rt.com/pop-culture/596257-ai-models-beauty-pageant/

So contestants from all over the world can gather and compete for the title of "Miss AI".

Excerpt from RT:
------------------
The event, called 'Miss AI', is being organized by the World AI Creator Awards (WAICA) in collaboration with Fanvue – an OnlyFans-like subscription-based platform that already hosts a number of virtual models, including those who offer adult content.

The digital contestants hoping to secure the Miss AI crown will be judged on their beauty, underlying tech, as well as their social media pull, according to WAICA's official website. The AI creator's "social media clout" will also be assessed based on their engagement numbers with fans, rate of audience growth, and ability to utilize social media platforms such as Instagram.
---------------------

I don't quite know what to make of this. There are so many viewpoints and I hope to see what others feel about it. One thing, it's an inevitable outcome of combining our technology and artistic expression, even done on ancient cave walls. Soon our digital presence can be tailored to anything we want it to be. Work from home. Zoom calls ( with your AI proxy, of course, which would handle as many simultaneous interactions as your server technology can handle ).

    "AI" itself is already ridiculous enough alone.

    Beauty pageants are already ridiculous enough alone.

    Combining the two is just next-level completely, absolutely absurd! 🙄

      "The Bald Soprano" combined with Andy Warhol? Could go either way.

      I was thinking almost the same thing!

      But then, considering how much effort people are putting into creating these...ummm....avatars, maybe this is a good place to show them off.

      I don't know what to make of this. It is so different from all I have known. But so was radio, then movies, then TV, then computers, now this. This is so close to something I wouldn't know the difference whether I was interacting with a real person or a machine, and worse yet, fall in love with it. Something like this could do a real number on me as long as it avoided any in-person physical meeting.

    Meanwhile, more people died in Ukraine.

        I think it's more about the source (rt.com i.e. Russian Television) than the subject per se.

            I live in America, but I cannot trust anything offered as being true. Anything not parroting official narrative is flagged as misinformation. One guy I did place some credence in screwed up some Sandy Hook families big time on his internet portal, and that has come back and bit him big time. I am so fed up with all this deception, while making it a crime for me to do the same.

              You weren't thinking of taking part in the contest were you?

              I am not interested in knowing who people are or where they live. My interest starts and stops at our servers.
