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.
A summary of my experiments generating logos with #dalle https://www.aiweirdness.com/ai-versus-your-corporate-logo/
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.
"Easter eggs, matte painting"
matte paintings are usually epic film backdrops so
(generated using @midjourney's CLIP-based text-to-image algorithm)
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.
I trained GPT-2 on a list of 15,000 golf course names and got some perfectly normal results
Tired of generic greetings?
Confuse your friends with AI-generated Valentine cards!
GPT-3 generated the messages and descriptions, and then I followed its instructions to create the cards.
I prompted GPT-3's DaVinci model with 13 paint colors (name, and R G B color coordinates) from a neural net I trained 5 years ago.
DaVinci drew on its internet training to generate these.
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.
Lucrative startup idea: use AI to predict the next toy fads!
Here I used GPT-3 to complete a list I seeded with pet rock, tickle me elmo, and furby. Its job is prediction, and its dataset is the internet. It is made of math so it is infallible.
I made an interactive AI-generated advent calendar!
Image descriptions by GPT-3, illustrations by Pixray.
Neural net generated ingredients list
My hobby is getting neural nets to complete lists because even the advanced ones make it weird.
