Despite the existential horrors that come from the ever-increasing wealth of knowledge gained by Artificial Intelligence —they sure do know how to create art. And now, the internet is making the most of this technology to generate some epically weird images with the help of Dall-E Mini. Named after the surrealist artist himself, Salvador Dali, DALL-E uses artificial intelligence to create images based on the text you write (no matter how weird). For example, if we typed in “Elon Musk trapped in space,” the AI would spin up images of the billionaire eternally trapped in the void of space (or one could hope so).

DALL-E was originally invented in 2021 by OpenAI but the images created were often grainy, inaccurate, and time consuming to generate. However, OpenAI has improved the software significantly, resulting in DALL-E 2 — a powerful new model that performs far better. DALL-E 2 is slowly being rolled out to the public via a waitlist but the version available to the public, DALL-E Mini, has provided some great results so far.

Twitter has been lighting up with some wonderfully interesting images from Cthulhu making an appearance on Sesame Street to a giant lobster playing basketball. So we took it upon ourselves to find 11 of the weirdest images we could find created by DALL-E.
