How artificial intelligence imagines the future of...

I've started a little experiment. A weekly exploration of how artificial intelligence «imagines» the future.

I start with a very simple prompt: the future of...{something}.

I then ask two of the most widespread tools, ChatGPT and Midjourney, to create a haiku and an illustration. Apart from a few formal and aesthetic specifications, I'll leave it entirely to the tools what to make of the prompt.

My hope is that this will elicit some interesting insights into what versions of the future these tools gravitate towards.

What futures should I explore next? Let me know.

The Future of...Energy

Solar wings unfurl
Fusion ignites the new dawn
Boundless power thrives.

The Future of...Food Production

Future crops take flight
Tech and nature blend as one
Feast evolves, sustains.

The Future of...Travel

Jet trails fade away,
Virtual worlds take their place—
Yet, feet still roam Earth.

The Future of...Glaciers

Ice whispers retreat
Melting toward tomorrow's heat
Future incomplete.
