AI Art

August 24, 2021

A few days ago, I stumbled upon https://is.gd/artmachine in some HN thread. I’ve looked into AI-based art generation before, and I’ve seen notebooks that attempt make it easy to run them. They never were that easy. The linked notebook, however, is easy. It’s using Google Colab, and it takes a text prompt and some settings, then it iteratively generates images using machine learning.

The results are strange, fascinating to watch over time, and wild at times. Here are some of my favorites ones.
