Back to My Dreams
For a birthday present for my wife, I commissioned two musicians to each create a pop song using lyrics generated by ChatGPT AI, album cover art generated by AI, and an AI generated music video. I made this website to present the songs to her as a surprise and explain the process of getting this project made. [more inside]
Infinite Adversaries: a fighting game generated and narrated by ChatGPT
Inspired by the "Choose Your Own Adventure" book series, Infinite Adversaries asks ChatGPT to generate perpetual, randomized encounters, pitting you against a never-ending army of imaginary enemies. You're given an option of weapons, and from there ChatGPT imagines an adversary, location, and a set of possible actions (along with their outcomes). As you decide what to do, ChatGPT narrates the results. If you survive, your prize is another adversary. [more inside]
A ChatGPT Primer for Writing Teachers (and other academic humanists)
Academics, like the rest of the world, have been talking a lot about ChatGPT. College writing instructors—people in the field of writing studies or composition and rhetoric—are particularly worried about (1) the possibilities of plagiarism and (2) the questions automated prose generators raise for the notion that writing is form of thinking. This informal 5000-word longread primer, with an extended bibliography for further reading, summarizes some of the technical operations of LLMs for a humanist audience and links those technical questions to larger pedagogical and philosophical concerns. Feedback welcomed!
Arrppier Suphder, ik Voby Tok
Arrppier Suphder (Wonderful About Spiders) ik Voby Tok is an AI assisted translation and visual regeneration of the children's picture book classic Spiders Are Wonderful (Toby Vok, 2011) into a language far beyond our own, for audiences in realms not yet known. [more inside]
I live-blogged the first days of the Biden administration.
The Kubrick Times
When making 2001: A Space Odyssey the production team wrote fictional news headlines to appear on the iPad-like devices. I've used HAL 9000 (OK, GPT-3 and DALL·E 2) to turn them into full articles. [more inside]
OpenCV AI Game Show
OpenCV AI Game Show is a trivia show all about artificial intelligence and computer vision. 3 contestants go through 3 rounds of questions in different formats. In our pilot episode folks are playing for a charity of their choosing. It's sponsored by Intel, and I'm the showrunner / co-host. [more inside]
The Gender Bias Inside GPT-3
In honor of International Women's Day, I decided to do an experiment to see what GPT-3 might reveal about human gender bias. And boy did it reveal a lot!
Guess the AI Jukebox artist
AI Jukebox is a fascinating project from OpenAI that uses cutting-edge neural neworks to perform all sorts of musical magic -- it can take a clip of a song and continue it in a new way, sing text lyrics in any artist's voice, make a song sound like it's being sung by someone else. My favorite? Tell it to generate music by an artist without any other info, and it will produce a gibberish song with nonsense lyrics... that still sounds 100% real and just like the actual singer or band with their unique style. You can hear instruments, melodies, sometimes an audience, the breathing of the lead singer -- but the whole thing is generated completely from scratch by the AI, not with samples or digital sounds. It's not flawless -- some of the songs ramble, with glitchy effects or a mutating voice. But these just add to the vibe, like it's from a dream or a parallel universe. I went through their database to find the best examples of these tracks from the most famous artists, then turned them into an audio quiz on Sporcle -- complete with AI-generated art of the artists I made to serve as hints in the second round. How many of the artists can you name? [more inside]
Student Digitalus - Critical Optimism Weblog
I research and read a great deal of texts on a consistent basis - here I share a collection of resources with thought provoking and or significant issues and news on a wide array of vital topics. Within the site are subsite-megaposts on a variety of topics. Largely posts without comment. Comments variously interspersed.
GANksy, the A.I. street artist
I trained a StyleGAN2 neural network on street art but ended up creating something totally new that generates dark and twisted imagery in its own unique style. The full-size 'signed' digital artwork is for sale to support producing more VOLE.wtf nonsense.

This MP Does Not Exist
I trained a StyleGAN neural network using official photos of UK Members of Parliament, then generated a whole new load of them along with names and constituencies (using segments from real MP names and structures of actual constituency names). The results are often blandly white, male & middle-aged, and occasionally very weird.
Generative Texts is a new kind of publisher. Rather than utilise humans, our publishing process is entirely AI driven, ensuring our texts meet the demands of our post-human future. As a publisher of AI-created, initiated, designed, and honed works, Generative Texts releases books exploring themes of interest to human and post-human minds alike, such as Irrational Numbers, Linguistics, the number One, the un-number Zero, and, in Brexit: The Commemorative Text, even politics, a subject previously considered beyond the interest of artificial minds. All our works are available to buy in splendidly produced machine-automated output forms, both in perpetual paper-based releases as well as in more ephemeral electronic data-propagations.
AI Dictionary (Twitter bot)
I wanted to see how much OpenAI's language model actually knew, so I tried to get it to define words... but I accidentally had it set to 'random', not 'best'. [more inside]
AI Generated Movie Posters
I built this website to generate movie posters using a neural network. The titles and tag-lines are generated by the AI, everything else is somewhat designed and randomized. Super random, so occasionally offensive.
It's No Game: A sci-fi short film (mostly) written by AI, starring David Hasselhoff
Last year, Oscar Sharp and I made the short-film Sunspring in just two days for the Sci-Fi-London 48 Hour Film Contest. It was (so far as we know) the first film created from a computer-generated screenplay [1,2,3,4]. This year, Oscar and I followed up on Sunspring with a new short film created for the same contest: It's No Game, starring David Hasselhoff. See the accompanying article in Ars Technica for more details. (Rather than generating the screenplay in its entirety, this time we used our neural nets as augmentative writing tools to generate short snippets of dialogue in various styles. )
Fact-Checking Can Reduce the Spread of Unreliable News. It Can Also Do the Opposite.
Moderators of r/worldnews on reddit worked with me to test an idea: what are the effects of encouraging fact-checking on the response and spread of unreliable news? On average, messages encouraging fact-checking caused a 2x reduction in the reddit score of tabloid submissions, which likely influenced reddit's rankings. [more inside]
TwitPoet - An iOS app to generate poems from Twitter, and post them
TwitPoet is an iOS app and friend and I wrote. It automatically generates poems from your Twitter feed, and (if you choose!) tweets them. It can compose Limericks, Haiku, and Rhyming Couplets. You can compose poems from your Home feed , a Trend, someone you're following or tweets you've searched for. twitpoet.com , Twitpoet on the App Store [more inside]
Meet Hum, the world's first robotic, artificially intelligent sex toy
Early this summer I discovered two physicists gone rogue. After they watched so many fellow PhD grads make killbots for the Department of Defense, they decided instead to use their skills to make love not war. This is our company. This is the world's first robotic, artificially intelligent sex toy. This is a vibrator for a new world. This is HUM. And the newsletter is definitely NSFW.
