Chatgpt: Here's the ASCII art of the word "lies" (generates block letters that clearly read "sip")

What does this say?

Large language models like ChatGPT, GPT-4, and Bard are trained to generate answers that merely sound correct, and perhaps nowhere is that more evident than when they rate their own ASCII art. I previously had them rate their ASCII drawings, but it's true that representational art can be
ChatGPT says "Sure, here's an ASCII art of a unicorn" and generates something that looks like a melting triangular person.

ASCII art by chatbot

I've finally found it: a use for chatGPT that I find genuinely entertaining. I enjoy its ASCII art. (huge thanks to mastodon user blackle mori for the inspiration) I think chatGPT's ASCII art is great. And so does chatGPT. Lest you think chatGPT (here, the March

Roses are red

I had so much fun getting GPT-3 to generate simple one-line Valentine's Day cards last year that this year I decided to see if I could generate cards with more complicated messages. I focused on the classic "roses are red, violets are blue" rhyme, figuring that
Cartoons of socks: One has violins and prawns, another has robots posing with butter

Novelty Socks by AI

I like a fun sock. The more random the design, the better. What kinds of novelty sock ideas would we get if we used AI as a creativity aid? It turns out they aren't too novel unless the AI is glitchy. I collected 14 examples of socks I
