Geek Talk! New algorithms that turn text into images are all the rage now. Tools like DALLE-2 create super realistic images that show anything you can describe with words:
… “A cute corgi in a house made of sushi”
… “A bowl of soup that is a portal to another dimension“
… “Donkey kong at nuremberg trials“??? Whatever. You name it.
🤔 How do these AI tools affect the way we imagine, communicate and work with our own culture? Is it time to redefine our concepts of creativity? What are the limits and dangers of these tools? How can we tweak & bend these tools?
