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.

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.

@platypus Yup, that seems to be one of the answers it's pretty consistent on!

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"

@WizardOfDocs Ha, this is definitely GPT-3, and I'm not sure I've seen someone demonstrate it decoding homophones before. Pretty cool!

@varx Hmm maybe the knock knock jokes? The Ireland You Money Butt joke is mostly plagiarized from the training set: aiweirdness.com/in-which-a-neu

ai generated british food 

I decided to give two neural nets a go at the Great British Bakeoff technical challenges. They did both much better and much worse than I had guessed.

I feel like we often don't acknowledge how very strange US grocery store names are. People just think it's normal to shop at a place called Big Bear or Giant Eagle or Piggly Wiggly.

So I used GPT-3 to add to a list of Perfectly Normal grocery stores.
