Death Selfies: How More Bizzare Can AI Get?


AIRobot Overlords: The TikTok account promises “daily disturbing AI-generated images”.

The TikTok video of the requested imagery was posted to an account called overlords, which has a bio touting “daily disturbing AI-generated images” as its mission. Robot overlords included references to both Mid journey and DALLE-E 2, the Elon Musk-founded OpenAI’s newly revamped platform. DALL-E 2, the latest artificial intelligence system from the company co-founded by Elon Musk, can turn simple text prompts into incredibly beautiful and realistic-looking works of art.

Mid journey in its present form is a social network for creating AI-generated art from a text prompt – type a word or phrase at the input prompt and you will receive an interesting or perhaps wonderful image on screen after about a minute of computation. And DALL·E 2 can make realistic edits to existing images from a natural language caption. It can add and remove elements while taking shadows, reflections, and textures into account. DALL. E, the AI system that creates realistic images and art from a description in natural language, is now available in beta.


The TikTok account promises daily disturbing AI-generated images:

The TikTok video’s creator didn’t say which text-to-image AI system was responsible for the image generation. A text-to-image diffusion model with an unprecedented degree of photorealism and a deep level of language understanding. Imagen builds on the power of large transformer language models in understanding text and hinges on the strength of diffusion models in high-fidelity image generation. The account asked an undisclosed AI image generator to show what “the last selfie was ever taken” will look like.

Each AI-generated image shows apocalyptic scenes. Oddly, though the undead figures are indeed quite ghoulish, each one is set against heavenly backgrounds. One holds a handful of flowers, while all of the figures are seen in front of fluffy, sunshine-filled clouds. OpenAI’s other major AI, the text-generating GPT, has gotten a ton of flak for being repeatedly put to nefarious use, the company made sure to keep close tabs on who gets to play with its latest AI system.

AI-generated art means one of two distinct things: Neural Style Transfer or Generative Adversarial Networks. AI images are pictures generated through artificial intelligence software. Digital images are created out of thin air from a text prompt. The AI image-maker responsible provided us with a portrait of the afterlife that took multiple human descriptions of what life after death looks like, and gave us an AI-generated mashup of the two.
