Are you not terrified and repulsed??
I prompted GPT-3 with some human proposals for marking a nuclear waste site, in a way that will still be forbidding millennia from now.
"I’m not sure how to feel about the fact that telling a neural net to pretend it’s a smaller, more-confused neural net is now easier than actually training the smaller neural net."
welcome to the future I guess
Rather than collect 1000s of supervillain bios, train a neural net on them, and style-transfer them all to be about AI, I just had GPT-3 generate the resulting blog post.
I collected my favorite AI supervillains and illustrated them.

There are several ways of getting GPT-3 to generate drawing prompts.
For #Botober I chose to give it a short story to complete, in which it had to generate lines for an erratic station AI. The neural net took over after "1."
The neural net suggested #Botober drawing prompts based on how the words fit, and not on any concept of how the objects might look. This list makes that abundantly clear.
I'm hand-curating the GPT-3 generated #Botober prompts because many of the neural net's drawing prompts are terrible for one reason or another.
Here are some of the prompts that were unfairly difficult.
For the first #Botober collection I generated, I had GPT-3 generate "things". Here's an alternate collection in which I had the neural net generate "concepts". It's different, but I'm not sure if it's easier.
Introducing #Botober, a set of AI-generated drawing prompts for each day in October!
I generated these using GPT-3, a neural net trained on a huge amount of internet text, but not on drawing prompts specifically. (This explains a lot)
A single typo in an Open Street Map entry caused an ordinary 2-story building in Melbourne to become an eerie 212-story pillar.
The Melbourne Monolith is now the most famous landmark in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020. A successful completion of the Monolith Challenge is to land neatly on its roof.
In today's disturbing news, I discovered that GPT-3 can write AI Weirdness blog posts.
1st paragraph is my prompt. The rest is GPT-3 simulating the fumbling of a much less powerful neural net.
getting gpt-3 to generate poetry on command seemed like a good idea at the time

I used GPT-3 to generate personality quizzes, and it turned out better than I expected.
