Adobe needs to STOP pushing generative AI to scientists

I am a scientist. Please, please, please stop prompting me to use generative AI while producing scientific figures that represent my data. I personally know better than to use this, but it is terrifying when I imagine the trainees in my lab, or the Center I direct, whose careers depend on making exciting new observations, being presented with these prompts.

 

Up until now, illustrator and photoshop have been crucial tools for scientists.  Introducing generative AI into the data presentation process risks- at minimum- having universities and scientists turn away from these tools.  I have explored with my institution whether we should ban the use of Adobe products for scientists because of this flaw.  At worst it encourages scientists, especially junior scientists, to create the data they believe are exciting, rather than present their actual experimental data.  This undermines science at large.

 

PROMPTING SCIENTISTS TO USE GENERATIVE AI MUST STOP. Please please please. I propose Adobe issue generative-AI-free products that universities can choose to subscribe to for their scientists.

Which version are you using?

 

The popups for new functionality should not appear anymore when you have closed them once in the latest version. You are not alone in this, but this is really not a plot against scientists.

Adobe Illustrator 2024. The popups keep coming. Also, the popups are not the only problem, it's the functionality that is the problem. I am sure it's not a plot against scientists, but the functionality will prove too tempting for some to ignore.

That has been already happening ince the invention of science I suppose. But do you want to ban pencils?

 

I agree that those recurring popups are too much. Which 2024 version exactly are you using? There have been several updates. Also: you might need to reset preferences.

In fact, if Adobe were to come up with a "chain of custody" product that could ensure no elements of an image had ever touched generative AI this would be very valuable to the scientific community.

I'm glad Adobe is thinking about this, thank you for the link. I hope content credentials can eventually be extended to include legacy image acquisition hardware somehow
