Welcome to the world of tomorrow!

I recently got access to the OpenAI's text to image generator Dall-e. It took 2 months, but wow... It was worth the wait.


In case you haven't heard about Dall-E, it's a neural network that generates images from textual descriptions. The results, when not hilariously bizarre or straight-up creepy, are pretty incredible.

There are many images being shared across social media generated by ai, however, Dall-E is the best I've seen so far which is why I was so excited to try it.

Something from nothing

Aside from restrictions on requesting content containing illegal activities, drugs, political figures and images intended to cause disgust or incite hate, you are welcome to ask the machine to look into the abyss and pull out your image.

Its impressive how quickly it can generate the results, in only 20-30 seconds it will deliver something like the following:

New memories?

Tired of your same old boring memories? Why not try making some new ones with AI image generation?

Be careful, don't look too closely or you'll be seeing these faces in your nightmares for years to come.



Imagine a world where web image search always delivers the image you are looking for, regardless of whether it really exists. Not just the images but the text too.

In the attention economy, I don't think it's too far a stretch for companies, bloggers, or even influencers to generate ultra-engaging, low-effort images and articles with the sole intention of keeping your attention.

Who needs truth, so long as we're making money? That's the important thing, right? RIGHT?

What do you want to see?

I have to admit, I've spent way too much time generating images, it's super addictive. There's a hopeful moment between when you click 'generate' and when your images are delivered that I haven't experienced before.

There is a slight learning curve when you begin describing things and my initial results, looking back, were a little underwhelming compared to what I can get out of a request now.

I will say that this process is much better with friends, so if you want to give me your description in a comment, I'll generate it and reply with your results.

What "a piece of art that Dall-E would like to present in their #introduceyourself post on a decentralized blockchain based platform called Hive" would look like?

Im not sure what it wants to say, but it's definitely trying to say it.

ahilte Divrtate von a Deteste?

maybe ;-)

This is disturbingly fascinating. Wow. Thank you so much for sharing your experience with Dall-E, I didn't know about this site and am anxious to see what it can generate... At this time in history when the topic of artificial intelligence is so intense, this post is a gem (btw I LOVE THE TIGERS SO MUCH!) 🐯 💖

Thanks for reading! Do you have a request I can generate for you?

😳 Omg, can I order something? You are so kind! Let's see:

Something with a Chinese dragon, red carnations, and a pagoda? I leave the context to you 👏


Really interesting compositions here. Hope you enjoy it!

I love them! They are so beautiful, omg thank you so much! o//)7//o

You’re very welcome.

Great post! I saw a streamer that I watch on Twitch playing a game involving Dall-E which was my first interaction and it was amazing.

The game they were playing involved having multiple people trying to ring a buzzer first to guess what the phrase was to generate the pictures.

I haven't tried personally but the realism compared to others alike is eerily good. It truly does scare me the potential this thing has on misinformation and other ways to spread panic.

Absolutely agree with the potential for misinformation. Actually it’s one of the terms that you agree not to use it for, but how to police it?

Do you have a phrase you’d like me to input for you?

That's the problem, even just technology as a whole. It is hard to enforce anything, I recently had a ethics class over technology and how IT have duty to not breach data privacy.

Uhhh I haven't personally thought about doing that. How about "Batman riding tricycle"? That might be funny.


Enjoy 😄

Wow! This is incredible. Who could have imagined that AI could create Art?


Is there something you would like to try generating?



Close enough 😅



Nailed it 💅🔨


Dear @elliotjgardner, we need your help!

The Hivebuzz proposal already got important support from the community. However, it lost its funding a few days ago when the HBD stabilizer proposal rose above it.

May we ask you to support it so our team can continue its work?
You can do it on Peakd, Ecency, or using HiveSigner.

All votes are helpful and yours will be much appreciated.
Thank you!
