Good To Know: What It Would Look Like For An AI On LSD To Watch Bob Ross

April 6, 2017


This is Deeply Artificial Trees, a video artwork that "represents what it would be like for an AI to watch Bob Ross on LSD (once someone invents digital drugs)." What? But I've already invented digital drugs. "No, that's a 64GB flash drive." Your face looks like the Matrix!

[This video] shows some of the unreasonable effectiveness and strange inner workings of deep learning systems. The unique characteristics of the human voice is learned and generated as well as hallucinations of a system trying to find images which are not there.

Well, I just managed to watch all five minutes and I'm fairly certain now that I've been brainwashed and hypnotized. Quick, tell me to do something and see if I do it. "Stop being such a f***ing idiot." Oh, false alarm. Whew, that was a close one.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to George, who agrees it's all fun and games until you're attacked by a digital drug-addicted robot with a rusty screwdriver.

    I have to hand it to the Alexander. He realized with his MIT degree that he could either punch a clock in a soul-sucking office and engineer crap or just leverage his intelligence and ability to fabricate bullshit into being a "consultant, writer and artist" who makes money to "speak and appear on panels discussing everything from design to robot ethics". I think he really just wants to build wacky crap and 1/2 of his theories are complete bullshit but what do I know - I'm not an MIT engineer.

  • Good for him. Fuck you.

    I don't see any difference. This is just a typical Bob Ross video. These videos don't always look like this?

    How much acid do you take on an average day?

    Why do you ask? And why do you think I need to answer to a giant fish person with the face of a cat who is smiling down at me from the ceiling? I don't even speak German!
