Cat Playing Piano, in the style of

Here are 40 images I generated with Distropic, an interface to Stable Diffusion, a deep-learning, text-to-image AI.

These are rather prosaic in the world of AI imagery these days, but I wanted to get a sense of what it was like to use these engines. And, well, it’s mind-blowing, impressive, sometimes hilarious, sometimes creepy — and quite fun.

Distropic is cool because you can fork off of other people’s prompts, so it’s collaboratively creative (which is where I got “cat playing piano”). But there are suddenly lots of other easily accessible UIs for playing with this stuff, such as this one from Hugging Face. I haven’t spent much time with DALL-E, so I don’t know how it compares Stable Diffusion or others.

The world is getting weirder by the minute.
