Midjourney doesn't use either of those datasets ( LAION-5B and LAION 400M ).
It also has content filters.
Some interesting questions do still remain, though.
If you have a Discord account (or are willing to sign up for it), you should definitely try Midjourney out before everything gets yanked into limbo by assorted lawsuits. You get 25 free tries with Midjourney and then if you want more it's $10 per month for 200 sets of pictures. Each set defaults to either 4 smaller pictures or 2 medium ones.
I find that Midjourney tends to give more artistic results. However, it sometimes doesn't have the degree of control that some other AI art programs do.
I've found several tricks to get better results. One of the top ones would be add the words gothic steampunk
to your request.
Requests are easy and basically like doing a Google search. Except that the AI just makes something up that matches your request.
However, knowing a few key phrases tend to give you better looking and more accurate results.
I've gotten hundreds of incredible looking pictures from this.
On Discord, just go to the Midjourney newbie forums and type /imagine
and then some words describing what you'd like.https://discord.com/channels/662267976984297473/976997370132848640
