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.
