Discover more from I Think We're Alone Now
Neat post on AI. I too fell under the spell of Dall-E-2 when it came into my feed a few months ago. I found most of the images fairly useless but was initially very excited at the prospect of an AI machine thingy, that I could prompt to help me draft creative visual ideas I have in my head. Alas, I failed miserably and never signed back in. But seeing your post on this topic, inspired me to go back and have a look at what I prompted the AI to create. Good to see our twin-ness isn’t fading with time.
I feared I hadn’t been specific enough.
I tried this next:
Still not what I wanted.
So I go back for more.
At this point, I still didn’t get that it was creating an image, not pulling an existing image from the internet. I’m a moron.
I think I get it now. But still, I decide I’m just not being specific enough with my prompts to get something that looks like us. I also try being a little more polite.
I move on from trying to get an image of us, and to an image of identical twins.
Not even a little identical.
I know it’s me that’s failing. But I still keep at it.
While I like this image a lot, I give up.
But just on Tegan and Sara.
I move on to the most obvious next source of inspiration in my life.
And then, not quite happy with how the dog looked, it was not Georgia enough to me, I tried:
And finally, for your nightmares:
I’ll say this, I hope AI doesn’t take over too soon. I think humans might still do it better. But for how long?
