Artificial intelligence has created images of “what happens if humans live in the metaverse” – and the results are seriously creepy.
The Facebook founder has big plans for the metaverse and wants it to be so good you won’t want to leave.
Zuckerberg previously told tech podcaster Lex Fridman: “A lot of people think that the metaverse is about a place, but one definition of this is it’s about a time when basically immersive digital worlds become the primary way that we live our lives and spend our time.”
When asked to create concept images of this metaverse future, Craiyon AI didn’t imagine things quite like Zuckerberg.
The AI trawls throw unfiltered data from the internet to inform its masterpieces.
This is how it comes up with an image based on keyword prompts.
Craiyon AI was asked “What does a metaverse future look like?” and “What happens if humans live in the metaverse?”
It produced several horrifying images of sickly-looking humans with VR headsets seemingly inserted into their skulls.
Some of the human-like figures just had VR headsets for heads and other distorted body parts.
DALL-E mini has since changed its name to Craiyon and is in the process of redirecting users to its new website.
The change came to avoid confusion with another AI called DALL-E which was created by OpenAI and can also conjure up unusual images.
