I hate this, and I pretty much need you to hate it, too. Apart from where it's funny, that's OK, we can all laugh. The rest? My nightmares, made real. And I've enough troubles in my waking hours without being haunted, too.
As covered on Kotaku, an artificial intelligence programme called StyleCLIP is supposed to give IRL human features to cartoon-like and video game-y characters. It is, according to this blog post from Max Woolfe, "Photoshop driven by text, with all the good, bad and chaos that entails". There are some horrific AI-generated versions of Mark Zuckerberg on the other end of that link, so be wary of clicking, fellow person who'd like their lunch to stay down.
YouTube channel Corridor Crew went further, taking unreal-looking cartoon characters and using StyleCLIP to change them into hideous real-world humans. Watch, and shudder at some of the results (please, watch long enough for Jar Jar Binks)...
Twitter user @siberian_644 has had a lot of fun with the AI, applying it to Street Fighter characters. Just look at Guile, below, and then enjoy the whole thread. I mean, I say "enjoy". Your mileage will vary. The Ibuki one, oh my days.
If you want to know more and mess about with this AI yourself - please, do not send us the results - you're advised to head back to Woolf's blog for relevant links and the like.
