Is Bing’s image creator depressed?
I’m a bit worried about Bing’s Image Creator. I tried to generate an image of a happy young girl and her father. After a couple of near misses, it finally decided it had detected content that goes against its own policies.
What these images are I will never know.
The last image it rendered is a touch disturbing in tone. After this, the creator blocked attempts to create new variations. Bear in mind I’ve asked for a happy girl with her father beside her.
This begs a few questions:
- Is there some inherent behavior in Bing that steers it towards darker themes?
- Is there an impact on me in terms of being profiled in a certain way?
- Have my searches on Bing prompted this darker vision of the world?
Whatever the answer to these, it seems to be an interesting development. A little like Microsoft’s earlier AI Bot became incredibly racist when exposed to the outside world, I wonder if the image creator is depressed.
Or perhaps I’m anthropomorphizing code.
