While artificial intelligence is getting better all the time, its bizarre shortcomings still can make us laugh. Janelle Shane (previously at Neatorama) attempted to train a neural network to generate Halloween costumes before, with mostly disappointing results, because the concept is quite broad. This year, she added a 2020 dimension to the experiment to include social distancing, meaning the costumes must be designed to be seen at a distance. While the algorithm kind of “got” what she was going for, the results are still quite odd.
