“That Time It Rained for Two Million Years”
“When Giant Scorpions Swarmed the Seas”
A lot of stuff has happened in 4.5 billion years.

I prompted GPT-3 with epic @EonsShow episode titles to see what the next billion years might hold.

I gave a set of 2020 headlines to the neural net GPT-3, whose training data cut off in October 2019.

Having never seen 2020, it tried to predict what headlines are next on the list.

GPT-3 generates reviews for the tiny neural net char-rnn's chaotic recipes.

GPT-3 is apparently trying to produce reviews that could plausibly be written by whatever weird humans are visiting this mangled recipe website.

So I managed to get GPT-3 to generate new Victorian handkerchief flirting codes.

I hope you find them useful for adding subtext to your next zoom call

This AI has never heard of but when I gave it the list of existing teams, GPT-3 predicted that these teams will come next.

The neural net GPT-3 has seen enough Halloween costumes in its general internet training that to get something unusual, you have to ask it for a twist.

I asked for high-visibility costumes for viewing in the age of covid, and was not disappointed.

Wondered what would happen if I gave this prompt, a permanent message designed for a nuclear waste site, to something oppositely ephemeral, a neural net trained on a snapshot of internet text from October 2019.

This post is not a post of honor.

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.

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 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 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 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 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 , 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.
