We’ve all been there, awoken & confused, from a peculiar set of circumstances where certain places, events, people, feelings & ‘things’ were all mashed together to gift us ‘dreams’, or sometimes nightmares…

Whereas before you would have to try and explain this scenario to someone using very complex hand gestures, a fancy new AI tool can now do all of that for you. That is, it can take your words and present them in a visual form.

Created by OpenAI, an artificial intelligence research lab co-founded by Tesla CEO Elon Musk and many others, ‘DALL·E 2‘ is their latest and greatest AI technology system. Without getting too technical, the technology works by having received ‘training’ on hundreds of millions of images, and their associated captions. Thus, it has learned the relationship between images and the text used to describe them.

You an apply to use this platform by requesting access via their website, although there is a waitlist for this… https://labs.openai.com/waitlist

BUT DO NOT DESPAIR! A version is available to the public, introducing, the ‘DALL·E mini’!

  • Want to see a giant Shih Tzu in space? You can.
  • How about a shark receiving a parking ticket? Absolutely.
  • And what about pigs flying? Too easy.

Granted, these outputs will sometimes leave you feeling a little confused, which is why it returns a grid of 9 examples of your request. With 1 usually standing out among the rest as being the most ‘realistic’, or something resembling realism anyway…

With AI being an ever evolving technology now seemingly capable autonomous learning, how will this affect our future and the way we live day-to-day? Is it good, bad or both? Should we ever fully trust a computer program to act in our best interests?

Time will surely tell, but until then, enjoy this harmless bit of fun!

As predicted, the internet has been busy with this one… See below for some of the examples generated by the ‘DALL·E mini‘ :
