OK… I’ll give this variation on the Turing Test a crack.
No cheating… (google etc.) just my eye and my thoughts about what I see and what I think.
In the order they appear:
This is tricky in that all of these could have been made by a human. In fact, given that a human created the AI and provided the input for the subject, technically, they are all ultimately generated by humans.
So… how to discern the difference? I noted a difference in level of storytelling: Static vs Dynamic.
Best example is the boy and dog… they seem to have personality, specifically, a sense of joy and wonder and also companionship… sharing the joy and wonder. Seems more likely that a human could add these layers in such a subtle but compelling manner.
Next best example: the tower of buildings: they are all compositionally related but each building has little quirky individual characteristics.
The difficult ones were the first two. On the first one, I can imagine a deeper story (mythology or history of some sort) but I’m projecting it rather than learning it from the piece. So… Computer.
The second one I was stuck on until I realized that the Great Red Spot of Jupiter was located precisely to best effect to elicit a classic SciFi theme. In fact, this piece looks like the cover to a paperback from the 80’s.
How did I do?
By the way… even if I failed 100% I stick by my opening statement…. And further… the whole exercise begs the question “how much help did the AI have with tools it was given by humans?”
Is spellcheck or even grammar check AI? Certainly not… but often smarter than me.
AI seems to always be the things we say computers can’t do… until they can…(chess anyone?) and the it turns out computers still do what they are assigned to do… like any good tool in the hands of a creative human.
I want AI to be real… not convinced yet.
