The company Midjourney, the developer of the neural network under the same name, canceled access to the free version of its product. It is reported by
Business Insider
.

Midjourney founder David Holtz stated that the reason was extremely high demand and abuse from users.

At the same time, he warned that the free “trial” versions of the program were disabled temporarily, until the system update was released.

The scandal around the neural network broke out after images of Pope Francis in a stylish white down jacket went viral on the social network. Donald also got it Trump — in the generated image he was arrested by the police. The pictures were so realistic that social networks did not immediately realize that they were generated by artificial intelligence.

A paid version of Midjourney is currently available. The cheapest tariff will cost $10 per month.

Recall that the popular visual neural network Midjourney, which creates images based on text descriptions, demonstrated how the characters of the Star Wars franchise would look like if they were drawn by the Dutch painter Hieronymus Bosch.
