This Is What AI Thinks A Moose-Powered Car Would Look Like: Cold Start

My friend Rob set up an instance of one of those AI image generators on a server, and I was playing with it, because these are fascinating, strange things. I asked it to create an image of a “moose powered car” and the result is what you see there. It appears to be less moose powered and more of a car made with moose parts and some generalized moose-like specifications. It’s a strangely good mashup of moose and car, I think.

There’s definitely some moose-fur-like surfacing, and perhaps some moose shapes in that nose, too. Maybe moosey proportions, also, tall and narrow. The huge, exposed front wheels are interesting, as are the hooded lights.

These black box AI systems are weird, no question, and I don’t think whatever is going on inside them is even remotely related to what we understand as intelligence, but in this case, I think a pretty effected moose/car hybrid has been achieved.

Good work, AI. I think.

I am instantly (infinitely) skeptical of any AI that can’t recognize a symbol of nature that predominant.
I know what a moose looks like up close. I know what a car is.
That AI interpretation is simplistic at best, depressing at worst.

I’m making $80 per/hr to complete some jobs on the laptop. I have not at all believed that it’d even possible but my close buddy qqa was making $27k only in five weeks working this easy offer and she had influenced me to join. Check extra instructions by visiting following web

Where are the antlers?
If I think of a moose my human brain sees antlers as one of the most prominent features. AI missed them completely. I am not worried about “SKYNET” taking over any time soon.
AI is still in its infancy. We haven’t even figured out how to make the steel mechanical coils of a simple vending machine reliably deliver the snacks I just bought.
Moose have antlers. AI doesn’t know that. It’s kind of a sad picture if you ask me.

It’s a female moose car. They don’t have antlers.

Even male moose don’t have them all the time. They grow them for mating season and shed them afterward, same as deer. Also, sexually immature moose of both sexes lack antlers. Generally speaking, if you pick any random moose at any random moment, it’s probably gonna be antler-less.

Moose, no. Aardvark, yes.

Are you sure the prompt wasn’t “moose car getting a colonoscopy”? 😉

I don’t know how these AI image generators work. But I assume that this is a randomly created one-off photo that was generated, right?

Meaning that if Jason went back the next day and typed in the same “moose powered car” it could create an even worse looking mash-up photograph and not just the same scary nightmare thing, right?

Interesting how the front and rear wheels appear to have opposite camber?

By far the best AI image I’ve seen is this:

the Prompt:

MidJourney, and the prompt was “Glamorous photo of a rugged Bob Ross wearing an intricate barbarian armor, muscular, holding paintbrush, vibrant and colorful.”

I find a great prompt for these AI things is _____ muppet. Lady Gaga muppet. Cher muppet. Trump muppet.

“Stained glass Muppets” was pretty good, as was “Britney Spears popping a wheelie.”

So this hints at how the Talbot’s design came about?

That moose seems very surprised to be a car.

Like Turbo Teen, where the kid turns into the car and back again.

Turbo Moose?
Alces Turbo?
Turbo Antlers?

Don’t park that thing in Alaska. Half the population is capable of field-stripping it in three minutes.

And Alaska isn’t big enough to turn that thing around in. You’d be stuck.

So is it powered by a moose running on a treadmill? Or by burning dead moose parts? These are important questions.

I imagine it would actually be genuine Moose Briquettes, shoveled into an insulated furnace. C’mon, we’re classy around here.

I think that should be quite moose repellent.
I live in a world where driving a car or truck you are told to hit the deer, but avoid the moose.
With this the moose would avoid you!

The door must be in the rear like a horse trailer. This is pretty cool overall.

Now that’s a gasket designed to keep a moose from coming through the windshield in an accident.
