What an AI makes of Super Mario and other game heroes is just cruel



It’s amazing what artificial intelligence is now capable of. Let films that are more than 120 years old shine in 4K or create real versions of famous cartoon characters. But sometimes the results can be disturbing, as examples from the Midjourney tool show.

It is still in a beta phase, for which you can apply at midjourney.com. The AI ​​generates images based on text inputs such as an abstract field full of daisies.

We don’t know exactly what words Reddit user EarlGrey_Picard used for the image below of Super Mario and Luigi, but one thing is certain: with the cuddly Italian plumber, who many people remember from their childhood days and also well beyond remember, that has nothing to do anymore.

But there’s more bad news: The Reddit user was shockingly willing to disfigure other popular game characters if desired. Think twice before scrolling down!

At GameStar Plus we have dedicated ourselves to a much more harmless, but no less exciting AI experiment. You can find the result here:

Finally, if you need some distraction after watching these scenes, but still find the AI ​​topic exciting, we encourage you to take our quiz linked below.

It can also be a bit frightening how an AI creates human faces that are difficult to distinguish from real faces. But maybe you can also prove the opposite and easily assign all the pictures correctly:

Real vs. AI Faces: Can you match all 20 correctly in the quiz?

Are there any specific characters that spring to mind for the Midjourney app experiment? Or do you just find it cruel what artificial intelligence did to our poor, virtual heroes? Feel free to write it in the comments!
