Fun With Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence Art

Using artificial intelligence to create images from text prompts was all the rage a few years ago, so naturally, I'm just now starting to play with it.  This is what it generated when I typed in my full legal name as it appears on my birth certificate.

This is what came out when I typed in a brief description of myself.  It's definitely closer than the first image, but I think the AI is being a little too kind, particularly with my weight.

Here are some of the other things that Skynet came up with.

Here is a family of aliens drinking coffee.

And here is Godzilla in a bubble bath eating a cheeseburger.  I'm not sure why it added two weird fish blimps flying in the skies above the city, but they were a nice touch.

I tried a few times to get it to put the Phillie Phanatic, but it never came close.  The most amusing result was when I typed in "Phillie Phanatic riding a dinosaur in outer space".

I typed in "Man Eating Christmas Tree" expecting to get a monster tree that eats people, but it seems that AI has a habit of taking things literally. I tried to be a little more specific and typed in Killer Christmas Tree Demon and... well... it's a demon all right.  I'm not sure what disturbs me more, the jingle bell earrings or the Douglas Fir thong.

Speaking of demonic things, here is Mr. Rogers if he was a Satanic priest.

It's time to step away from evil and into things that are bizarre just for the sake of being bizarre.  This is Van Gogh's Starry Night if it was sponsored by Pepsi.

This is Vincent Price in a boxing match against another Vincent Price.

And this is Quentin Tarantino surfing on an ocean made of cheese.

My first experiences with AI ended with a trio of Seinfeld images starting with Jerry as a mafia don.  Apparently he lost a finger on his right hand at some point in his criminal career.

Here is Kramer as a ninja warrior.

Last, but certainly not least, this is supposed to be George Costanza riding on the back of a whale.  It looks like he's put on a few pounds.  Now that I look at it again, he looks a little like a white Al Roker.  He has been joined in the ocean by a man that appears to be a Costanza/Newman hybrid and a third bald man in a hoodie.  I think this one is my favorite of them all.
