Please get pleasure from this creation calendar, generated and illustrated with the assistance of three machine studying fashions (GPT-3, DALL-E, and Midjourney)

The way it was finished:
I used GPT-3 to generate the door descriptions of an creation calendar by having it full the next story:
It’s the yr 20022 and the robots have carried on sure human traditions. Lots of them come and go, however yearly with out fail there’s an creation calendar, originated by a glitchy robotic santa in collaboration with a motorized christmas tree. The robots have researched the calendar and decided that the Christmas scenes behind every door are extremely atypical of the human custom, however everybody enjoys them anyhow.
The Christmas creation calendar for the yr 20022:
Temporary door descriptions:
I used the unique DaVinci variant of GPT-3, which tends to be higher at producing bizarre textual content than the newer variants (which attempt too laborious to make it appear to be textual content they’ve seen earlier than). As traditional, I saved perhaps 1 in 10 door descriptions it generated, with the others being normally both too unusual as an example, or shut copies of doorways it had already generated.
For the illustrations, I used two totally different text-to-image fashions, DALL-E2 and Midjourney, asking them each for one thing like «The minty breath of the Starfish, 16-bit pixel artwork recreation reduce scene» in an try to get them to generate a picture that will look good whereas tiny.
Not like Pixray, which I used to generate pictures for the 2021 creation calendar, DALL-E2 and Midjourney aren’t really working with just some pixels. As an alternative, they’re faking it. Take a look at the picture under, which DALL-E2 generated for the door description «The minty breath of the Starfish». It appears at first look to be pixel artwork, however the pixels differ in alignment, measurement, and side ratio. Some pixels even have curved sides. It is aware of roughly what pixel artwork seems like however not WHY pixel artwork seems that means. I discover the idea of pretend pixel artwork fairly humorous.
Midjourney takes much more license with the idea of pixel artwork. It has a restricted coloration palette and a few strains with pixelated edges. However are these clean gradients within the sky and water? And the way massive are its «pixels» anyhow? The midjourney mannequin is optimized to make issues look fairly above all, together with above constancy to my bizarre prompts.
The «minty breath of the Starfish» door is without doubt one of the ones I rejected as not prone to work nicely when illustrated. Certain sufficient, each fashions simply slapped a starfish in an ocean scene and referred to as it a day.
