Midjourney is an artificial intelligence program that generates images from natural languages descriptions (prompts).
Midjourney blocked the simulation of Xi Jinping’s images but discouraged users found a workaround.
They found a trick that consists in creating fake images that are manipulate by machine-learning system.
Midjourney tried to block the increase of fake on its platform by not allowing access to its free trial version.
On Tweeter, a user wrote that: “It is still possible with /imagine, if you provide the full URL of an existing photo of Xi in the prompt. Or you can use /blend with two existing photos.”
