Words of an AI (sort of)

Disclaimer: Term clarification: neural networks aren’t the same as artificial intelligence but a part of it, at least as far as I’ve understood. Putting AI instead of neural network or ANN (Artifical Neural Network) sounded so much better in the title, so I put it there and wrote this disclaimer.

I stumbled upon Talk to Transformer, which is about a neural network completing text given to it. Since the FFM writer I found it through, Flammenfeder, asked its opinion on politics, I decided to ask it the question “What is art?”

This neural network gave me the most beautiful answer I’ve ever read:

What is art?

Art is not a scientific concept, but a human one. To us it is something more than the study of things, or the creation of art. To art we are all born, and to the human race we belong. We are born to love art, and to be the inheritors of our ancestors’ art and traditions. We are born to be artists.

As an afterthought while writing this post, I also decided to give it a small dose of Damon L. Wakes (because why not) and fed it 18 bananas. This is what it gave out:

Banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana banana

I’m worried.
