One thing I have tried to do in class is show the students how generative AI has been developing at a phenomenal rate. This is an example of something spat out by Bing Image Creator of a much higher quality than before:
Image generated by the following prompt given to Bing Image Creator: “A lost scene from the iconic public television program “The Computer Chronicles” where the hosts show us a variety of 1980s computer technologies for the first time that help promote physical fitness. They are joined by multiple female physical fitness enthusiasts.”
Stewart and Gary seem to be missing from the picture, though. The system generates premium nightmare fuel, too. For example:
You might’ve seen this sort of picture in a computer magazine from the late 1980s or early 1990s touting the benefits of “the quantified self”, I suppose.
Things are starting to get really, really world in the generative AI space, I think.
