Data visualization(-ish) in the style of famous artists

DALL-E is an AI system from OpenAI that creates images from text. You can enter very random things and get very real-looking output. So of course someone entered “data visualization in the style of insert-anything-here” for a wide array of inspiration. I’m partial to the bar chart made out of cake. Tags: AI, DALL-E, OpenAI

AI says if you’re the a**hole

There’s a subreddit where people share a story and ask if they’re the asshole. WTTDOTM and Alex Petros trained AI models based on the responses so that you can enter your own story and see what the AI outputs as responses: AYTA responses are auto-generated and based on different datasets. The red model has only been trained on YTA responses and will always say you are at fault. The green...

AI-generated movie posters

Noah Veltman fed an AI movie descriptions and made it generate images. The results are in quiz form so that you can guess the movies. I would give myself a poor rating for guessing the movies, but once you see the answer, you’re like oh yeah of course. Veltman used VQGAN+CLIP, which you can find out more about here.

An AI chatbot to talk to the dead

Joshua Barbeau fed an AI chatbot with old texts from his fiancee who had died years before, so that he could talk to her again. Jason Fagone for the San Francisco Chronicle wrote about Barbeau’s experience: As Joshua continued to experiment, he realized there was no rule preventing him from simulating real people. What would happen, he wondered, if he tried to create a chatbot version of his dead fiancee?...

DeepTomCruise breakdown

Chris Ume, with the help of Tom Cruise impersonator Miles Fisher, created highly believable deepfakes of Tom Cruise and posted the videos to TikTok. Ume showed the breakdown of the arduous process of training the A.I. model and editing each frame. The Verge talked to Ume more about the process: “You can’t do it by just pressing a button,” says Ume. “That’s important, that’s a message I want to tell...

A.I. love story

Pamela Miskhin, in collaboration with The Pudding, wrote a love story. It’s not just any love story though. The text is based on Mishkin’s own experiences and input from GPT-3, the language prediction model that produces text that sounds like it came from a human. The result resembles a cross between choose-your-own-adventure and Mad Libs. Tags: AI, Pamela Mishkin, Pudding, story

A game where you get to be a faceworker and mess with an AI system

Kyle McDonald, in collaboration with Greg Borenstein, Evelyn Masso, and Fei Lui, made Facework. It’s a game that imagines a platform where people use their faces in a gig economy and you’re encouraged to trick the AI that you’re something you’re not — with your face.

AI-generated faces as stock photos

The Generated Photos project is a work in progress to provide realistic AI-generated faces for use in things like presentations or user interface design. “Copyrights, distribution rights, and infringement claims will soon be things of the past.” An API is in the works so that you can generate the kind of faces that you want, but for now, a set of 100k images are available. Cool? Slightly creepy? Tags: AI,...

Spotting AI-generated faces

Computers can generate faces that look real. What a time to be alive. As it becomes easier to do so, you can bet that the software will be used at some point for less innocent reasons. You should probably know how to tell the difference between fake and real. Kyle McDonald provides a guide to the telltale signs of AI-generated faces. Tags: AI, faces, fake
