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:

@janellecshane@wandering.shop 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.

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.

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.
