Day 96. 68 pages, 30,301 words.

This is definitely one of the best things I saw this week. Some madman has created an AI that generates motivational posters.

Special thanks to Mr. BRKN for showing me this particular Internet Gem™.

Even more brilliantly, the AI also generates increasingly creepy messages while it’s generating the memey goodness.

Good memeing, Dave.

I don’t know if we’ve lost track of what an AI actually means, but if anyone didn’t see “the first AIs will be able to beat humans at memes” as the obvious Twenty-teens extension of “the first AIs will be able to beat humans at chess”, well. You just haven’t been paying attention, have you?

About Hatboy

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends. Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages? I am Hatboy.
