This paper seeks to analyse the ethics of such visual outcomes by drawing upon philosophical discussions regarding autonomy, authenticity, and creativity. I shall attempt to give a holistic perspective on the ethics of art produced by machines. This article shall inform and motivate the reader to deliberate on important questions such as – What qualifies as an artwork? Who is an artist? What are the ethical implications of accepting artificial intelligence in the world of art?
