Scientists Try to Teach AI To Create Children’s Book Art — AI Creates Apocalyptic Nightmare From Hell Instead

By Piper McGowin

Well, this is certainly comforting (in much the same way getting a hug from a rabid, starving polar bear would be considered “comforting”).

A team of scientists attempted to train a deep learning algorithm to recognize illustrations from thousands of pages of children’s books including those by authors Dr. Seuss, Marc Brown, and Maurice Sendak. They used not one or even two but three models to do it: ALexNEt, VGG-19 and GoogLeNet.

Should be no problem easy peasy pie, right?

Wrong. What came out the other end was either a bunch of stuff being set on fire in what looks like the pits of hell, or something strikingly similar to puddles of cartoon blood spatter.

Here’s a smiling turtle… lit on fire by AI:

Here’s a city scene… which AI turned into an apocalyptic nightmare from hell:

Here’s what used to be a little girl…:

And here’s what happens to Cat in the Hat drawings:

The AI was supposed to learn how to recognize individual objects, such as an eye, a car, a tree, etc.

But…

This is what happened instead.

If this is the way AI programmed by our best and brightest computer scientists sees our world, then I can’t wait for it to take it over and run the whole show, can you?

    This article is a great metaphor for what would happen if we let the elite-controlled A.I. take over: we are promised heaven and we are given hell.

    Some more tabloid sensationalism from Piper. Three out of the lot went weird. Big deal. Why not do close ups of the one where it added color to a b/w turtle? And if you read the linked source, it even mentions that those three were consider failures. I mean, obviously AI is not a good idea overall, but this author should be writing for the National Inquirer, not a site that want to keep its integrity and legitimacy. It obvious that the literal next step in AI is the Terminator as this article is suggesting.

      “added color to a b/w turtle”. Well that’s no big whoop, since mankind has been adding color to everything including old b/w Hollywood movies, frame by frame. We don’t know how its going to end with AI, but I can tell you this, satan and his demon armies will take full advantage of gullible man.

    Looks sorta like what they’re doing in public schools right now anyway…

  • Hahaha

    Its clear that artificial intelligence is far from superior intelligence! My roomba is proof of that…

    I don’t see any of the “art” that is impressive. But that’s not surprising–there’s no such thing as true “AI,” and there never will be. There’s only very clever programming.

  • Alexander Panasenko

    More I read about AI, more it looks like it’s the image of the beast that people will bow down to or be killed for not worshiping it. Revelation 13:15-18

    “And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”

    The blind normally lack the ability to teach sight.

    As does hued-man lack the clarity to instruct genius
