> From this story, though it was the shortest and the most simple too of all those I have recorded in this book, I feel that I learned several things of some importance. First of all, how much of our speech, which we think freshly minted in our own mouths, consists of set locutions. The Ascian seemed to speak only in sentences he had learned by rote, though until he used each for the first time we had never heard them. Foila seemed to speak as women commonly do, and if I had been asked whether she employed such tags, I would have said that she did not---but how often one might have predicted the ends of her sentences from their beginnings.
You could look through the various sets of samples and the more extreme psi examples and the interpolation videos and perhaps get a better idea of the extent to which the StyleGAN 'understands' faces and is being creative: https://twitter.com/gwern/status/1093701790971953152
It's true it is hard to define what art is. But I'm pretty sure /dev/random isn't an artist, even if a human artist can produce random things.
You're asking that rhetorically, assuming people will just agree there's a difference because a human artist did it and a computer doing it isn't an artist, but you know a lot of people would be happy to take one of those forks.
I really enjoyed the videos that transition through the different options for Holo.
It's cute but less interesting than, say, thisdoesnotexist.
If I didn't know it was an experiment, I'd think it was a bot-driven ad-fraud popup site or something.
Looks like it is kinda an AI research but I cannot get any detail behind it.
"Many hospitals conduct nightly wealth screenings — using software that culls public data such as property records, contributions to political campaigns and other charities — to gauge which patients are most likely to be the source of large donations.
"Those who seem promising targets for fund-raising may receive a visit from a hospital executive in their rooms, as well as extra amenities like a bathrobe or a nicer waiting area for their families."
Also, I thought HIPAA would prevent that behavior.
Locum health professionals are very common in the UK.
How about going more meta with thisthisdoesnotexistdoesnotexist.com?

This one is hilarious... Is it like, you need to wait for the block time (20 minutes) to get one reply from the bot?
"Get your groceries supplied by badly paid people because you're too lazy."
An actual working random address generation would be kind of cool. But this really isn't. Plus, as far as I know, postal numbers are available from OpenStreetMaps' database or Google Maps.

There's some deep truth in that.
I'm still mulling over the possibilities of what that could mean.
If it were an ML-model, it would be AlphaZero of sarcasm.
Boner, Applying Blockchain
Perhaps not a brilliant startup idea.
Then parodies started appearing, like http://www.thiscatdoesnotexist.com and this one, and probably a lot of others that I didn't hear about.
