I didn't expect this to work so well. • Includes text generated by OpenAI's GPT-3 at my request: openai.com • Art by Chris Quay: www.chrisquay.com/ • Got an idea for a video? www.tomscott.com/contact/
Filmed safely: www.tomscott.com/safe/
OpenAI had no control or sign-off on this video, although I agreed to abide by their ethical guidelines and social media policy.
Thanks to Eddie the corgi's owner for introducing me to the folks at OpenAI: eddie_corg

I should clarify that by "out of ideas", I mean that I've only got enough to last me until the end of March, or maybe the middle of April if lockdown eases. The way I work, that's close enough that I start to get worried.

Tom, Nostalgia for a thing that never existed is what Vaporwave is.
thornofnight Pred 9 dnevi
Anemoia is almost a good enough word for "nostalgia for a thing that never existed" because if it has never existed, then one can certainly have nostalgia for that thing they never experienced.
Articulated Pred 10 dnevi
Hey Tom, there's a town in South Devon called Decoy. There is a local legend that it was built specifically to convince the Luftwaffe to drop bombs on them instead of Plymouth. I was always skeptical, but could be worth a look!

Lofthouse is about 30 minutes away from a village which was fully submerged following the building of Thruscross Reservoir, so the AI got so very close to being right

Jeremy Clarkson's lottery of death is something I want to see (also, Clarkson must be a great source of material for AIs). And I'd love to read the script for British Moon landings as well, because why Britain should stop at Earth when could conquer the universe?

Lloyd Davies Pred 2 dnevi
Also it’s funny you said you don’t think there’s a word for nostalgia for something that doesn’t exist, but actually in welsh there’s this word, ‘hiraeth’, which doesn’t translate, but sort of means a longing to go back to either wales, or a place/time that doesn’t exist!

“The cliff that refuses to be a cliff” would be a great video explaining a geological terminology error made in 1963 that has never been corrected

“The cliff that refuses to be a cliff” There are so many great reinforced cliffs out there. If a cliff needs to be reinforced multiple times it could be said that it’s refusing to be a cliff.

Just a RANDOM question: If an AI built something, who does it belong to? The creator of the AI, or the person who placed in the details that the content the AI generates is based off of?

Regarding "The British Road That Is Also A Boat", I direct your attention to the SS Badger, a ferry in the US between Ludington, MI and Manitowoc, WI that is officially a part of highway US 10.

When you don't know a video idea, you just make a video about video ideas. Seems about alright.

Plot twist: The AI is from an alternate universe which is why it had prompts for things that don’t exist, it is slowly creating a portal for the universe it came from and by telling prompts of things from that universe, once it has told enough alternate universe prompts, a portal will open and the alternate universe will take over our universe

I can imagine eventually that the whole youtube process could be entirely automated by AI, finding video ideas, generating a script, creating an animation. Its very possible for something like that to happen, which is quite a scary thought...

Ezio133798 Pred 9 dnevi
2:54 Oh wow, that's actually quite accurate, coming from someone who knows the area. Edit: Damn, there's some good ones in here. The Village That Was Saved By Synchronised Traffic Lights: Sounds like any village, on any given day honestly. Cars can cause some havoc if the traffic lights stop displaying what they should. The White Cube At The End Of The World: Huh. So, an ice cube? Maybe a sugar cube? Sounds like the beginning of a sci fi film to me. The Sanity-Defying Crossroads on the Isle Of Skye: Who the hell can figure out how crossroads work anyway, right? I'd say just use GPS, but that explains what makes it so sanity-defying. How a Secret Gadget in The Beam of The Olympic Stadium Helped Deliver Britain's Medals: What, are aliens beaming down Olympic medals now? The Long Forgotten History of the British Moon Landings: Huh. It's right, I certainly don't remember the Brits ever landing on the moon. Seems like something that I would remember... The Island With a Gravity Defying Vertical Mountain: I love that it has to specify that the mountain is vertical. As if there's any doubt that the mountain isn't somehow on its side. Honestly, THAT would be more gravity defying. The Strange Light That Floats Over Oxfordshire: The sun? Maybe the moon? I dunno, a street lamp? The Lost Village of Lofthouse That's Now Invisible: Explains how we managed to lose it. Are we sure it didn't just get demolished and the owner's in denial? The Dream of a Russian Utopia in East Yorkshire: The only thing fictional about this story is the fact that the Russians haven't been able to make it happen yet.
