I’ve got the most … disturbing results!
Hi Manuel! Yes I did! 😊
Absolutely not! Barely recognizable pieces, boards with adjacent squares of the same color
I’ve had some with triangular squares … 😝
Why does this happen? The traffic jams were just as bad! Wonky roads, blobs as cars ….
Yep, like a surrealist paining, with things melting, flowing into one another
Right! That’s it exactly!
That is also more or less how the algorithm works …
What do you mean?
Well, if you use more complex queries, like “a panda climbing the empire state building during an eclipse”
the AI generator will try to mash all those elements together, mixing them, overlaying them, and so on
OK, so something like making a collage? 😊
Exactly, yes. The AI “knows” some words, the relations between the words and the pictures, and can learn from them
Learn to make new relations?
Indeed, so from pictures tagged as “man riding a bicycle” and “monkey” the AI can then generate a picture of “monkey riding a bicycle”
You know, I’ve actually tried “bicycle” and some other everyday things, and the results were terrible …
none of the bikes I’ve see in those picture would actually work … some they had no pedals, others too many and in the wrong places
Yep, that is down to two things: ostensive definitions and scribbling
You’ve lost me …. 😅😅
I’ll explain then!

Anything is art if an AI says it is
Do not you understand? This is a whole new dimension, even according to the canons of the classical “art sacre”. This is a real revolution. Do you understand, ladies and gentlemen? This is the first hot plastic artwork! You! You! My boy … you are an artist!
“Young man, you don’t think I’m encountering constructive symbolism for the first time, do you? “Unplug”: free yourself from physicality, from the vulgar earthbound physicality, from the evils of civilization, from electricity, nerves, and so on. Isn’t that what this is? The association is crystal clear, I’d be tempted to say, perhaps even too obvious” (Kishon 1987)
As far as AI can see
The case of the use of the abacus by Japanese school children and adults … tool’s use becomes incorporated into a culture-specific technology
All aboard the Spike Train!
The experimental results from neurobiology have lead to the investigation of a third generation of neural network models which …
The Network is the Message
A continued stimulus, such as a state of tension, a light or a sound, produces a continued passage of sensory impulses to the central nervous system.
I’m in your brain, releasing your transmitters
The mechanism of action of nerve stimulation is unknown… it is possible that substances are formed under the influence of nerve stimulation
Come in Neuron: do you copy?
If we liken the nervous currents to electric currents, we can compare the nervous system below the hemispheres to a direct circuit from sense-organ to muscle
Zap goes the Neuron
If I do not greatly deceive myself, I have succeeded in realizing… the hundred years’ dream of physicists and physiologists, to wit, the identity of the nervous principle with electricity
Today one Neuron, tomorrow the Brain!
The Navy said the perceptron would be the first non-living mechanism capable of receiving, recognizing and identifying its surroundings without any human training or control
Do Neurons Count?
Neural computers do not execute typical machine instructions of digital computers unless they are made to emulate the behavior of physical neural networks
