So AI has made some amazing leaps and bounds over the years- it writes scripts, tells jokes and creates recipes. And now AI is foraying into the world of art, with one such effort known as DALL-E, which can take any text prompt and generate an image based on it (though it's, uh, "creative" in its interpretation). There's an online version known as DALL-E mini, a simpler version which has gotten a lot of attention from the Internet primarily by being a creator of nightmarish imagery. So after seeing it in a Markiplier video, I decided to give it a whirl myself.

Let's start off with something relatively easy:

DALL-E 1.jpg
That's... not bad, for the most part. (Don't ask me what's going on with that middle one, though.) Next:

DALL-E 2.jpg
I could use some of these as profile pictures, to be honest. Okay, let's try something more abstract:

DALL-E 3.jpg
Weird eyes aside, any one of those top three could really match the concept; that's pretty impressive. (That bottom right one, uh... yeah, I dunno.) Now, for something completely different:

DALL-E 4.jpg
Dante #4 has the right idea. The sleeve of a leather coat is more nutritious than anything you'd get from Subway.

I keep getting "Too much traffic, please try again." prompts.

Shame. I wanted to have nine images of "A parrot wearing a hat asking for directions".

I got it to work. Although I am not that impressed; I tried "A bird riding a dinosaur" and it mostly turned into images of dinosaurs riding birds. And they looked cursed.

It's not really very impressive. I tried a couple of things and it never really gave me what I asked for. This one was the most interesting.

I don't know what it is, but it's not what I asked for.

Edit: Uh huh...

Today I tried experimenting with different characters wielding chainsaws to pretty good effect.

Gary is the clear winner, though. Also, I think he has a shotgun in one picture for some reason.
