I had an AI try to draw me, it was horrifying.

Every day we get closer and closer to an AI that can pass the turing test. From Siri to Alexa, there’s no shortage of artificial intelligence trying to make our lives just a little better. I can play some music or even turn off/on the lights with just a simple voice command. What else can AI possibly offer us? How about artistic expressions?

To put this to the test I used a website that I discovered on Reddit called fotogenerator.npocloud.nl that allows users to create a drawing in a small provided space and then the AI uses it’s complex algorithms to create… something like what you drew, only human-like.

I then decided to draw something that was almost human-like with a resembling face. I decided to go with a Halloween pumpkin.

The results were… interesting.

Had I just walked into a Tim Burton film? This was incredibly uncanny and I absolutely loved it.

So what have I learned from this experience?

 

Artificial Intelligence definitely has it’s place in our world, but there’s some things that just can’t be replaced with the human touch. From self driving cars to the internet of things, we are going to see a lot of new innovations arise in the next 10 years. As the technology improves, hopefully so do our lives.
