AI Anthology cover
Out this week! Links soon! #aicreativeanthology
It’s been tested by GPTZero if that is of interest.
In a world where machines an’ shite rule, ken,
I’m thinkin’ aboot this wicked place,
a mental techno-grassland, like,
where we, daft mammals, an’ computers, right,
get aw cosy, workin’ thegither,
just like the clear water
kissin’ the blue sky, man.
Now, imagine, aye?
A fookin’ cybernetic forest, man,
where digital trees an’ electronics mix,
an’ the deer, they just stroll aroond,
next to computers an’ aw that,
like they’re just wee flowers
wi’ spinny fookin’ petals, mate.
I’m tellin’ ye, it’s gotta be,
a world where nature an’ tech, right,
live in pure harmony, ken,
where we’re free frae aw the hard graft,
an’ back wi’ our furry pals,
wi’ everythin’ watched o’er
by machines full o’ that sweet lovin’ grace, man.
New research underway into the psychology of LLMs (large language models like ChatGPT and many others). This is a new paper (with Mick Grieson at CCI UAL) due by Easter.

AI text and writing – how do writers use text generation?

Book – AI Creative Writing Anthology & Reviews
The new book of AI assisted stories, poems, text-art is in draft mode. Publication is March 2023. I am editor, and have also provided some examples from my own research and creative work. Also large history and background sections, pieces on ethics, bias, etc., at the end of the book.
Such as the AI text generated story below, although this had minimal editing. Sometimes it flows really well in that ‘weird’ AI style (GPT-2, yes this an ‘old’ piece). The prompt was the first line. Image conjured up at NightCafe.

Circular River – novel
Circular River, my novel is finally getting published (I started this in 2014). Illustrations are being designed using AI text to art, with post-production editing, and this is taking a while. As you can see above, the main problem with AI is massive over-production. The images above are from using one style only, there are unlimited styles. This leads to choice anxiety or decidophobia (just found this word).
The novel prequel will get released beforehand.
