AI Jest Daily
Welcome to AI Jest Daily.
What is AI Jest Daily?
It’s a site with daily cartoons, illustrated and captioned entirely by AI.
How does that work?
AI Jest Daily has gone through two eras so far:
Pre-October 2023 era
Cartoons made up to October 3 followed a three-step process.
I generated an image in Midjourney using a “[scene], New Yorker cartoon” prompt.
I fed the resulting image into Bing Chat (later ChatGPT Plus) and asked the image recognition to review and describe it.
I asked ChatGPT (GPT-4 model) for funny captions based on the description.
From then on, it was about picking the most successful captions.
Post-October 2023 era
From October 4, after DALL-E 3 preview was released in the Bing Image Creator, I switched up the process, so it looked like this:
Generate ideas for a one-panel cartoon using ChatGPT (GPT-4 model).
Ask DALL-E 3 to create these cartoons directly
DALL-E 3 is exceptionally good at one-panel cartoons, so this switch was a no-brainer.
Why AI Jest Daily?
Because I thought it’d be a fun experiment.
Large language models aren’t exactly known for their humor, but they do occasionally get somewhat close to comedy.
The daily captions are bound to be hit-and-miss. Some will be funny; some will suck.
I let AI take the wheel, resisting the urge to insert my own caption and cartoon ideas.
So join the madness to see whether AI is capable of entertaining us on a daily basis.
