The models have come on stronger and stronger, producing images that are indistinguishable from real pictures creating a new reality for the photography world. The first time an artificial intelligence image won a photography competition.

An Artificial Intelligence image won a photo contest in Australia in February. The company behind it said it was the world's first artificial intelligence-generated award-winning photograph.

Absolutely Ai said that they did it to prove that we are at a turning point with artificially intelligent technology.

Michael Christopher Brown caused controversy by releasing a series that was entirely generated by Artificial Intelligence. Brown wanted to show stories that are impossible to document with a camera and turned to artificial intelligence for his project 90 miles looking at the realities of Cubans attempting to cross the 90 miles of ocean that separate Havana from Florida. The documentarian came under heavy criticism for his embrace of artificial intelligence with fans of his photography enraged and threatening to unfollow his account.

Boris Eldagsen refused his prize from the Sony World Photography Awards after he revealed that his image that had won the Creative category was generated by artificial intelligence.

Levi's uses models to increase diversity.

Levi's announced in March that it was using Artificial Intelligence to increase diversity.

The company said that they are continuing to increase the diversity of their models in order to reflect their consumers.

With the list of legal cases hanging over Donald Trump longer than the butcher's line at Christmas, an artificial intelligence image was created showing him being knocked to the ground by police officers. The pictures posted in March showed Trump in a holding cell, the courtroom, and the prison yard. Although not everyone was fooled by the images, they still went all over the internet.

PetaPixel reported in February that two accounts on the social media site were fake. Emanuele Boffa, the photographer featured in Vogue, admitted that he had been passing off artificial intelligence images as real portraits he had taken. Boffa stated that the images generated with the help of computer graphics or artificial intelligence are not marked as such. Artificial intelligence can generate exactly what the author wants, when used correctly.

The incident prompted the expansion of the Community Notes fact-checking program.
