An exercise in frustration

There's an anonymous facebook posting that's been making the rounds, in which a studio art director tried to hire AI prompters to make art, only to discover that they were completely unable to carry out minor revision requests. Asked to remove a person from a shot

Hidden 3D Pictures

Do you know those autostereograms with the hidden 3D pictures? Images like the Magic Eye pictures from the 1990s that look like noisy repeating patterns until you defocus your eyes just right? ChatGPT can generate them! At least according to ChatGPT. I've seen people try making Magic Eye-style

Learn your farm animals with AI!

Generated candy heart images. Messages include "le yas", "dove tut", and "hove".

Chocolates, labeled

So much of current AI-generated stuff is derivative sludge that I'm enjoying the pockets of weirdness where I find them. One of my favorite things right now: DALL-E3's attempts to label things in the images it generates. Here I asked "Please generate a cross section
A variety of unrealistic flightless birds, included a two-headed cassowary labeled "Kheo"

Flightless birds

I enjoy asking DALLE-3 to label things. I learn so much! Here I asked it to generate a labeled grid of flightless birds. I think it's trying to do ostrich (a female apparently! unusual for a bird poster but I approve), an emu (definitely not an emu'
Mammals with labels, most incorrect. A one-horned antelope with a long cat tail is labeled Danda.

Learn the mammals with DALL-E3

Here are the mammals! Maybe some of your favorites are pictured. Here's the prompt I gave ChatGPT4: "Please generate a set of mammals on a plain white background, each mammal species clearly labeled." However, ChatGPT4 is a text-generating model, so it doesn't have the
Cartoony bible-style shepherds and sheep with misspelled labels

Your AI-generated guide to the nativity

I asked DALL-E3 (via chatgpt) for "a simple Christmas nativity scene with each element clearly labeled in large capital letters for a child who is learning to read." I'm sure you will find this very helpful. okay one more there was an attempt! bonus content: two
Old-timey style illustrations mostly of birds in santa hats & garbled versions of verses from 12 days of christmas

Your illustrated guide to Christmas carols

Between the two of them, ChatGPT4 can generate the lyrics to Christmas carols, and DALL-E3 can illustrate them! Throw your old carol books away because this is the only guide you'll need. 12 Days of Christmas Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer (if you read out the tiny text beneath
