What AI thinks about America’s 50 states

DesignBro, an online marketplace for graphic designers, apparently had a lot of time on its hands and decided to find out what AI thinks about America.

It used OpenAI’s GPT-3 language model, which harnesses deep learning to produce content, and asked what it thought about each state. The model scoured through millions of pages of information online to come up with funny, rude and sometimes startlingly accurate answers.

You can try out GPT-3 at OpenAI. Sign up for a free account to get access to the 'playground' where you enter a text prompt (such as 'develop a tagline for a shopping website') to see the AI create content.
