This AI creates inspirational posters – badly
InspiroBot is a rudimentary AI – more accurately learning software – that creates inspirational posters. And it does it hilariously badly.
Inspirational posters run the gamut from encouraging to saccharine to ridiculous, and there never seems to be an end to them. “Hang in there,” “Follow your dreams,” “Liquor before beer, have no fear,” etc. You’ve probably seen thousands of them over the years, and the majority of them probably included an almost random image of something meant to be inspiring.
There are so many of them that they have become parody. So much so that even an AI gets the joke. Kind of.
A new AI known as InsipiroBot has been launched with the sole purpose of creating randomly generated inspirational sayings, displayed upon random images of things like mountains, fog-covered forests, people holding hands, and so on.
They tend to be… odd.
It’s also not clear who created the site or why. The only clue is from the site’s “about” page and it reads:
“I’m InspiroBot. I am an artificial intelligence dedicated to generating unlimited amounts of unique inspirational quotes for endless enrichment of pointless human existence.”
To be fair, it’s a little overblown to call this an AI; a more accurate description would be learning software. It is able to generate quotes on its own, but that’s about it.
Here are a few of the best/weirdest. Feel free to head over to the site and try it out yourself. Be wanted though, it’s a time suck.
