Why it matters
- These photorealistic AI images of the Kardashians show how powerful the technology has become and what it is being used to create. Recently, AI-generated images of Donald Trump being arrested and a fake audio clip of Taylor Swift went viral — with many social media users believing that they were real.
- The popularity of AI-generated images of the Kardashians also suggests that the famous family are still relevant in pop culture — despite what Gen Z may think. The Kardashians are a mirror of contemporary values and artists love re-imagining America’s real “first family”.
