Computer Generated Images
Thanksgiving weekend was the weekend just passed. Pam and I had a pretty quiet time. It was good because she was sick before Thanksgiving and she passed her illness to me and I was sick during Thanksgiving.
During this time I started "playing with" computer generated images. I'm going to post some of the better ones I created below.
Here is what I think I've learned.... "Think I've learned" means I may have it wrong and I want "wiggle room" to change my mind.
This first image is a composite. I took the dragon from one image and the knight from another and combine them together here. I won't go into the details of all the other changes or alterations because it is boring.
But the important thing is this. You ask the AI (Artificial Intelligence) to generate an image based upon its "learning" of what a dragon is, what a knight is, and the other parameters you give it. Then some images come up with watermarks on them or a indiscernible scribble in the lower right of an image. This tells me the AI is browsing data bases of images and presenting an image NOT creating an image.
My guess is that the image below was the painstaking creation of someone and the AI has altered it a good deal, but it is still someone's work. (I couldn't bring myself to put a © on it)
Having said that...
Here is another image. I asked the AI to create an image of multi colored cloth strips, close up. It took a few tries to get to this image. I think this image is likely "original", meaning the AI actually created it verses scraping an image out of a data base and altering it
When I asked the AI to generate a horse and Amish buggy it didn't know what to do. The horses had between 3 and 5 legs. The buggies had unattached wheels and three of five of them. So it has yet to "learn" what an Amish Buggy is.
I will likely continue to play with this, but I don't expect it to go far for me at this time.
If and when I'm convinced the results crate original content then that might change.
Here are a couple more images for you that are either AI in part or whole.
