My fellow inebriates,
As you know I’ve been playing around with AI.
Today I found this strange service from Microsoft Bing—a kind of visual cousin to ChatGPT.
When I asked it to create a “mangy-looking bear drinking wine,” this is what it came up with:
I was thinking it would produce something more heartwarming, like this picture of yours truly:
I tried again and got this:
Seriously, Microsoft Bing, that is one creepy set of photos. You went WAY PAST mangy and somehow got to bloody. And clearly all those bears have been, like, operated on. OMG.
I gave it one more try. This time I specified that the bear should be drinking white wine, to establish whether this AI was giving me bloody bears or wine-soaked bears. (I can’t tell; can you?)
And I got this:
So, it was the word “white” that did it?
This seemed implausible, so I specified “rose wine.” No problem. Microsoft Bing produced this:
What about chardonnay?
Content warning again.
But viognier gets a pass:
They still look a bit bloody, so I’m guessing SOME of the stains in the red wine shots aren’t blood. But some are…?
