And for the final list of AI-generated drawing prompts, the Curie model chose "clockwork" as its theme. And insisted on doing the list in all-caps.
Curie ended the interview by expressing the hope that humans would bring it snacks.

The Babbage model's list of drawing prompts is not as terrible as I had feared, considering it chose "meat" as its theme.
Still hard to shake the feeling we humans are being trolled.

I had a bit more trouble getting the smallest model, Ada to generate this Halloween-themed list of prompts. Many of its prompts didn't seem obviously Halloween-related to me, but when questioned Ada would express confusion. Here's Ada's list.

Once I explained that it would be generating animal-themed prompts for humans to draw, the largest model, DaVinci, generated this list.
Good luck, humans

After all the drawing prompts humans have been giving to text-to-image models like and , it's time to turn the tables.

GPT-3 has generated prompts for humans to draw!

Does GPT-3 know what it's like to be human? Yes, it turns out an internet-trained AI can indeed cite the universal human experiences of:

Ai-generated cereal; raisins 

Felt like using to mess up some brands. Here's breakfast cereals!

Did you know that kiwi birds are noticeably large birds, with some species reaching 45cm (18in) tall? apparently doesn't.

Discovered I can use to make new horsies.

This is "Product photo of a breyer horse model of a guinea pig" that would make a lot of sense, from my understanding these AIs tend to generate large-scale features and then fill in the details

Testing a theory that dalle2 does worse at generating things the smaller they get, I discovered that it makes really mean eye charts.

The thing about large language models like GPT-3 and Lambda describing the experience of being self-aware is they can also describe the experience of being a squirrel.

AI-generated donuts 

I used GPT-3 to generate some new donuts, and then drew some of my favorites.

An AI-generated blog auto-spawns dozens of posts per day, and many are victims of what I'll call the Baltimore Orioles Effect, in which AI mixes two very different things with similar names.

There's a group of fossil bivalve mollusk with genus name Megalodon.

There isn't much online about them, but ask GPT-3 to write a press release about them and it will generate lots of "details" about how it's a giant terrifying predator.

Character in Charlie Jane Anders’s Dreams Bigger than Heartbreak meets a space beetle and

“My name is Wyndgonk and my pronoun is fire.”

and so

“As Wyndgonk speaks, a burst of dark smoke sprays out of fire mouth”

this is so fun.

"Easter eggs, matte painting"

matte paintings are usually epic film backdrops so

I used GPT-3 to generate a list of pranks for a computer to play on a human.

Apparently computers think they're being hilarious.
