Ranjit commented on my drawing of Glossatory's definition of GARTER: "I find this one particularly evocative! Please do an oil painting next" so I colourised the original and fed it to StableDiffusion with different degrees of desaturation, and the prompt text "A man in a green boat holds a ladder to a red disc floating in a choppy sea under a blue sky with white fluffy clouds, yellow, green and purple discs in the distance, dramatic oil painting, winslow homer". I think the algorithm did pretty well.
I didn't post as many links this week because I was preoccupied helping to run the RSE Asia Australia Unconference - RSE referring to research software engineer, which is an attempt to carve out a professional identity which bridges people like myself, technical specialists who support research systems, and researchers who write and maintain software. It went really well and I plan on writing a longer post here in the next week or so.
It wasn't one of my daily links but this post about prompt injection attacks against GPT-3 is essential reading if you're interested in either machine learning or software engineering, and a great example of how the industry commits the same mistakes over and over again in different contexts.
