MP Kristyn Wong-Tam befriends a capybara

Explainer: Check out the AI ​​art generator that’s breaking the internet

Have you ever wondered what Congresswoman Kristyn Wong-Tam would look like next to a capybara? What about what Doug Ford might look like if he appeared in the 2019 horror movie “Midsommar?”

A hilarious internet tool can show you…sort of. It’s still learning.

A new AI model that generates illustrations from human-typed text is grabbing attention across the internet and filling our social media feeds.

Users are prompted to enter a phrase describing the desired art, and a grid of nine images is offered for your consideration.

According to a post by Dall-E creator Boris Dayma, the model learns “by looking at millions of images on the internet with their associated captions.” The model retains some memory – individual images and search terms – but continues to learn when faced with unique inputs like, say, “Doug Ford drinking bubble tea.”

Over time, the AI ​​model will continue to improve, creating more accurate images from text prompts.

The name of the generator refers to the surrealist artist Salvador Dali and the cartoon robot WALL-E.
