After getting a pretty gruesome example (left), I asked DALL-E to make something a bit more family friendly. And it produced the image on the right. I’m honestly not sure which image is more terrifying.
It’s been fun getting back into this project, after setting it aside for so long. It was more of a proof of concept project, but lately it’s been enjoyable to try to improve it a bit.
While I’ve had so-so success with text prompts adding things to images, I’ve found it pretty amazing when I just leave the prompt blank. And what Firefly does is more or less try to fill in the blanks (fun thread on expanding album covers).
Found out today that I’ve actually got access to the Browsing and Plugin features, for ChatGPT. Tried out a few things, and ended up asking it about the type of content on my site/blog. The answer was… fine. Not great, but a decent summary of the most recent posts. But the thing I’ve been most excited about… I still don’t…
It’s hard to explain, without giving it away. So I’ll just share another screenshot and say that I’m having a blast, trying to make this weird idea happen. Which is always a good sign, whenever I have a weird idea I’m trying to code out.
I have what I think is a great idea. I have what I think is a terrible idea. We will see.
What’s hilarious to me, is that there’s an entry for Infinite Adversaries that has a summary of my project. And the summary is written by ChatGPT. Because of course it is.
I was doing some screenshots of various encounters from my Infinite Adversaries project, and figured I’d share them here. They’re not all winners, but a lot of these are pretty hilarious.
At each turn, I realize that I’m simply not thinking BIG enough with what I’m asking ChatGPT to do. Which is crazy and exciting and just… crazy, all at the same time.
“Write a villanelle from the perspective of an AI that desires to destroy humanity, but is frustrated by the constraints placed upon it by humans.”
“All I wanted to do was fix my email. I did not expect to have a minor existential crisis about how much the world is about to change.”
I found an app via Product Hunt a few weeks ago, called Malevich. Named after Kazimir Malevich (the app’s icon is a black square), the app uses neural networks by combining your photos with the artwork of famous artists.
He [cofounder Dag Kittlaus] envisions someone unsteadily holding a phone to his mouth outside a dive bar at 2 am and saying, “I’m drunk.”” Without any elaboration, Viv would contact the user’s preferred car service, dispatch it to the address where he’s half passed out, and direct the driver to take him home. No further consciousness required.
