These stories were composed by OpenAI's GPT-2 language model and AllenAI's Grover news generator, which were given various prompts and asked to elaborate. My favourite results are recorded here — some lightly edited, many entirely intact.
The accompanying photos were generated by the AI at This Person Does Not Exist. They are not real humans, but you can look into their eyes nonetheless.
I post new humans here, and I have written about the project here.
