Should AI change the professional world in the future? Yes, and the change is starting now. Even models are getting competition from AI-generated counterparts.

The Mexican edition of Playboy has, for the first time, placed an AI-created image of a girl on its magazine cover, according to the magazine’s website. The cover features a picture of Samantha Everly, whose appearance was generated by a neural network. The model looks like a young woman with blonde hair and blue eyes. The creator of Samantha has set up an Instagram account for her (owned by Meta).

In March 2023, Vogue Singapore presented three editions of its magazine, each featuring an AI-generated portrait of a woman. The images, grouped under the theme “Roots,” were created in collaboration with the artist and creative director of the content agency We Create Films, Varun Gupta.

Is the world becoming more artificial or more intelligent?
