Q: How to play Go without board?

All these images are AI generated. There is a fashion of short clips on YouTube of X movie or game as an 80s sci-fi/horror movie - as you see I fancy the horror ^^

What do these images have to do with Go?

IIRC the thread is about Go-related images of newer times, even though the title doesn’t explicate it.

Moved the last images and comments from Images of newer times

p.s.: But admittedly amazing images.


Oh, I’m very sorry, somehow that completely slipped by me! :sweat_smile: I can take them down and post them elsewhere if you prefer?!

Edit: Yeah, there are some really kool pictures made by these AIs. Honestly mindboggling how fast they developed! Midjourney, the program with which these were made, still struggles with the number of teeth and fingers human have XD, all the other aspects tho look great!!!

Haha, but as we evolveβ€”because, surprise surprise, we’re far from being β€œfinished”—these numbers may change anyway :smiley:

OTOH changing numbers of eyes, ears, noses, mouths, limbs, etc. seem VERY improbable.

Thanks for moving the pics, here they are indeed more apropos ^^

i would give a lot to see how humans and human societies develop and evolve over the coming millenia and further.

There is a real cool piece of speculative biology available on the net, All tomorrows by the Turkish author C.M. KΓΆsemen, who also dabbles in handfeeding bristleworms. How is that for a pet?! XD - the book was published as a free epub in the 2000s. ^^

Image generator can draw spectrogram
and spectrogram can be converted to sound

so, text to music generator with just fine-tuned model, without changing image geneator AI itself:


So cool! :astonished:
