This scientist made an AI that invents paint colours and the results are hilarious

Annalee Newitz experiments with neural networks – you might remember her from her previous viral hits such as asking a computer to create recipes.

Annalee Newitz tells us it’s “quite possibly the greatest neural network experiment of the day, involving paint colors”.

Now take a deep breath, and see if you can read all these robot-invented paint colours without cracking up.

“The creator says the neural network is bad at naming paint colors? I DISAGREE” writes @Arcibulka.

“These are all unreleased aphex twin tracks” says @Hell0jed.

“oh god. stanky bean. help. laughing too hard. can’t breath. robots killing me with comedy” says @Qdot.
