The holidays are nearly upon us and 'tis the season to kick back and have some fun. Every year we design a card to send well-wishes to everyone. This year we thought we might go with one of the major themes of the year - the rise and rise of AI.
It's everywhere. Most of the start-ups we work with seek AI or ML programming skills and popular culture has fully embraced it. Alexa and Siri seem just a little smarter and publicly available on-line AI software seems to be doing everything from writing poetry to composing music to creating visual art.
So what does an AI-designed seasons greeting card look like? Well this is where we landed...
A bit freaky, huh? That's what it looks like, but we thought it worth explaining how we got there.
Basically we wanted to blend some of the typical themes of the holiday season with some deeptech ideas, so we signed up to DALL-E and asked for designs based on words like "DNA" and "Phage" with "Christmas Tree". Some of the various iterations were truly bizarre...
To mix it up, we asked for some of the designs in the style of various famous artists such as Picasso, Van Gough and David Hockney - interesting to see how DNA is interpreted through some of those filters. Oh... and we threw in the occasional reindeer for fun.
So there you have it. Happy holidays from the team at LUKA GLOBAL! Happy to hear your comments - both on the aesthetics and also the wider implication of the infiltration of AI into our lives. It's only going to be more prevalent.
See you next year ...
