Creators Get Revenge on AI with Nightshade

A tool called Nightshade that attaches itself to a visual artist’s work online, and corrupts any AI program that attempts to use the image for training purposes.

A pretty interesting read. Also a more in depth on the tool in the link below.

Read up on it some more and found:

It works by tricking models during training into miscategorizing images, rendering them useless. Though it only affects new models and risks escalation, Nightshade represents creators' efforts to impose costs on unethical AI firms to push for proper licensing, as the rapid growth of generative models threatens artists' ability to control their work.

Interesting way to stop “AI theft”. Hoping government bodies step in here so that we don’t have to resort into tricking models.
