AI-generated breakfast food 

Used GPT-3 to generate new breakfast cereals and descriptions.
Some are a bit questionable.

I went on a quest to get CLIP to recreate those giant wooden playground complexes from my childhood. You know, one of these.

I figured it would work - they already look like a fever dream of an over-enthusiastic AI. I never got close.

Neural net generated food items to enjoy! 

Pixray generating "View from the end of the Thanksgiving Table"

Demo here: pixray.gob.io/text2pixel/

Pixray Swirl uses CLIP to generate each frame to match my prompt, starting from a shifted version of the previous frame.

Prompt here was "Straight trail leading past a jelly landscape with jello mountains

Come for the jellyfish, stay for the colossal jam jar.

After I gave it a few examples of changing one style of text into another, I got GPT-3 to draw on the vast knowledge encoded in its internet training and improve some common error messages.

If I give it a few examples, I can get GPT-3 to change the style of a sentence. See how it improves my writing!

I decided to see what CLIP+VQGAN would do when I gave it a house and told it to make it haunted.

vs modified to better match the phrase "a haunted Victorian house"

Because I so dearly love it when humans play along when computers ask for silly things, I have generated drawing prompts for !

I've managed to get GPT-3 to follow themes. Here's "animals". The rest are at this link:

It's easier to make an industrial demon than a unicorn cake? I experimented with @RiversHaveWings's new diffusion-guided CLIP method.

"industrial demon, matte painting, artstation HD"
"unicorn cake with golden horn and rainbow sprinkles"

AI-generated cake 

There's no cake fail like an AI-generated cake fail.

I had CLIP+VQGAN attempt some classic showstopper cakes. Here's its "galaxy glaze cake"

Pretty striking the difference that a byline makes when asking CLIP+VQGAN to generate images.

"Internet infrastructure"
versus
"Internet infrastructure by James Gurney"

Tried to generate a chair made of beetle kill pine.

It's a wood with distinctive blue streaks, salvaged from trees killed by pine bark beetles. Turns out it was easier to get CLIP+VQGAN to generate the texture than the chair.

Asking CLIP+VQGAN to generate

"a car driving down a road in monument valley"

versus "A car driving down a desert road in monument valley | dramatic atmospheric ultra high definition free desktop wallpaper"

SAME TRAINING DATA

What fascinates me about generating images with CLIP is that it CAN generate depth and realistic textures, but only if you know how to ask for them.

"A herd of sheep grazing on a lush green hillside" alone

vs with "amazing awesome and epic" added

The problem with taking startup advice from a text-generating neural network is even the advanced ones know more about what sounds good than about what actually works.

Generate buzz with these AI food truck concepts.

Remember, GPT-3 scanned most of the internet during training so it knows what's popular!

Botsplaining: turns out it's much easier to get a neural nets to sound confident than to actually be correct.
