Take a look at these pictures.

It sounds like a knight protecting the castle, but it reminds me of a Cubist like Picasso, right?

Even the colorful fox and this simple robot painting have different styles, but in fact, they are all drawn by the same artist.

What's even more amazing is that it only takes 10 seconds to draw a piece of art.

Did you notice?

The true identity of this author is the new artificial intelligence.

The AI ​​is named after Dali, the famous painter Salvador Dali.

Just type in a word and this AI will draw a picture that matches it.

Let's see.

When I typed in 'Scientist Teddy Bear doing chemical experiments', I made such a cute piece of art.

When you say 'The astronaut rides a horse', several pictures like this come up.

You can also choose a style of painting, but you can also draw pictures, drawings, and Andy Warhol styles.

The position can also be adjusted.

As you can see, they are even playing the role of graphic designers, such as transforming the dog into a shape suitable for a different location.

How is this possible?

First, AI has learned to recognize objects over the past decade or so.

Taking a dog as an example, I learned what a dog looks like by looking at countless pictures of it.

Here's a picture of a Chihuahua and a muffin mixed in. At first, I couldn't tell them apart, but now I've gotten past this step and I can even tell what kind of dog it is.

However, knowing and drawing are two different things.

How do you draw so quickly?

It is difficult for a person to draw, but it is rather easy to increase, decrease, and transform a picture.

Artificial intelligence draws pictures in this way.

We're going to blur the dog picture A and make it into nothing but dots.

If you repeat the process of transforming by a certain ratio B, you will get a dotted picture C. We transformed the picture by the ratio B, right?

Artificial intelligence is good at calculations, so this process is reversed.

If you keep dividing the point C, which is nothing, and repeating this process, the meaningless points gradually turn into puppies.

It's about finding the best formula to make a puppy.

It's certainly an amazing technology, but there are problems lurking.

If you enter this AI as a skating panda, a picture like this is generated, and you may see this picture and see fake news that 'skating panda appears'.

In addition, the production company is focusing on blocking this because it can be used to create pornography or as a deep fake that synthesizes the faces of real people.

Is it enough to just stop this?


When I asked him to draw a lawyer, he drew several, but if you look at them, they are all white men.

When I asked them to draw a nurse, this time they were all women, and there were more Asians.

Many personal assistants are also women.

Because the data learned by the AI ​​itself has the prejudices of society, it draws a picture that reflects the stereotypes as they are.

The performance of AI has improved noticeably, and the output can even outperform humans.

Therefore, we humans need to further verify and supplement the results of AI and whether the process of producing results is ethical and fair.
