AI Images: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO)

Continuing, finally,

tonight

I want to talk about artificial intelligence or a.i. It's a technology that, despite posing a clear existential threat to humanity, we currently manage to keep under our control using

images

of traffic lights, but make no mistake once the machines learn to recognize them. we all are now I wanted to talk about ai because there is a new popular trend that you may have heard of. It seems everyone is talking about these websites that use artificial intelligence to generate

images

. It's all because of a tool called Dolly that comes from a startup called openai you type a description of something you want to see and a computer creates realistic

images

to match it the fun part is you can be very elaborate with your descriptions the system was trained with 650 million

images

and the results are some of the best we've seen on computers so far yes ai image generators there are several of them now like dali crayon and halfway with each one of you. involves writing a text and it will create

images

for you in about a minute for example you can write let's say a roast beef superhero now what does that look like?

Is he a superhero made of roast beef? Is it a superhero that saves? roast beef is both i have no idea but this is what meat journeys was created based on that phrase and i have to say one robot well played is the fantastic roast beef superhero logo the roast beef hero of manners soft with legs instead of arms and no lower body the headless roast beef hero holding a roast beef stick of justice and the America shaped roast beef cut wearing a helmet that appears to have fallen to the ground, all four

images

they are now my favorite roast beef superheroes.

Watching phase five of the mcu right there, it's really fascinating to not only see the visuals come to life in seconds, but also to see how ai interprets these prompts. ul bumblebee frog or judy dench fighting a centaur on the moon or what the show decided to do when given the goose pilates two word message i think we could all agree excellent you can kill an afternoon looking to see what pictures do others have asked what one of our staff julia was doing when she made a fateful decision because she started putting the names of various late night hosts like james corden, which returned eight search results, including james corden flies an airplane and test camera footage of james corden eating teeth and i know it can be hard to watch him do that but there's one where he eats teeth with paul mccartney and it's actually very touching in an interesting way for most hosts , not many results, there were 14 for conan o'brien eight for colbert one three each for trevor noah and jimmy kimmel but this is where things got a little weird ras because then he put my name and do you want to know how many results he got?

It's 493 and look at one level I get it I get it I have a face that's already basically a boardwalk cartoon I have what the carnival performers call an actual softball but almost 500 hits is a lot and it's not just the volume it's the specificity of the accessories there are

john

oliver

emerging from a can of mt green beans

john

oliver

as an amoeba seen through a microscope and

john

oliver

commanding a horde of goblins to carry a potato all of them they deserve to be in the louvre and at least one of them represents a real nightmare i've had but there's a user halfway there who has gone beyond a user named post poo zoomies hi i won't pretend i loved saying those words, but i think you will agree that his artificial intelligence creations are just amazing, for example there is

john

oliver

as mona lisa which is amazing although i think maybe enough com or to be prosecuted as a felony in Italy, then there is

John

Oliver

, who is a perfect egg. and

john

oliver

is an egg with a bad attitude so don't mess with him or he will do to you what he did to humpty dumpty that's just one of many pictures where the post poo zoomies were apparently trying to tell a story complete there is also

john

oliver

at brunch with the girls and he laughs because debbie told a funny joke which is remarkable because that's exactly what i look like when debbie does that or how about

john

oliver

as a cowboy with such a big cowboy hat that no one respects you which is really amazing because I couldn't tell you what size a cowboy hat should be to instantly dissolve respect but that computer was able to calculate the dimensions perfectly and honestly bravo to you post poop zoomies , i had a few questions about his process until i found this post of you reading i just got high and ruined a million

john

oliver

s it definitely tracks but the real work mae stra midway is a long series of pictures that i like to think of as the cabbage saga created by post-poop zoobees and another account margaret the story begins as all good stories do humbly with the image of

john

oliver

is very confused in a cabbage patch from there we move on to

john

oliver

growing cabbages in his apartment a hobby that obviously takes off for me as we then see

john

oliver

giving a ted talk on proper cabbage growing techniques which, to to be fair its even better than this actual ted talk called how to tie your shoes then things start to escalate because next we see

john

oliver

throwing a cabbage and

john

oliver

throwing a cabbage at a kid for some reason and then in a great plot twist

john

oliver

having dinner with a cabbage because he realizes maybe he would judge them too soon that's a subtext that comes absolutely out of nowhere but Or does it make much more sense when you see

John

Oliver

gaze lovingly at his cabbage realizing that he is falling in love followed by Does

John

Oliver

love cabbage? they're getting married and oddly enough it's at this point that the ai for the first time seems to have trouble with a prompt because it appears to be a picture of me marrying myself and the cabbage somehow being there as a witness but that's not what what this story is about is and i don't know what this computer is struggling to understand about the very simple concept of a man who wants to marry a cabbage it's not a complicated computer that's why we don't let you drive cars yet but the story isn't there yet finished and I have to warn you that it takes a darker turn because the next thing we see is and this honestly made me gasp out loud oh no

john

oliver

dreamed of being hungry and ate the cabbage in his sleep which is absolutely mortifying and understandably followed by

john

oliver

crying in half cabbage and

john

oliver

will never be happy again his heart is broken but his stomach is full which is tragic and somehow beautiful and if You're w Wondering what I did with the other half of the cabbage which is made clear in the final message, that it's simply

John

Oliver

dumping cabbage ashes into the ocean and what a journey we've just taken.

This story is a true testament to the ups and downs of life. showing how poetic and charming and weirdly peppy cabbage can be there really is only one thing that bothers me about all of this and that is the wedding image because take a closer look at it right now the show ai achieved all of its other assignments but this image, the key image in the entire story, the focal point of the tragedy that follows, was somehow beyond his capabilities, which seems a shame, this story deserved better, after poo, the zoomies they deserved better, just like Margaret, we all deserve better and that's when it hit me. there is really only one way to remedy the fact that we were fooled with that key wedding image and that is to provide it to you now, but not through graphics, no, that would be too easy.

I'm thinking more of a full, vibrant painting that brings it all home, so please come with me because I'm about to marry a cabbage.

John
