An AI bot is trying to create motivational posters, the hilarious results could not be more wrong

We all love it when AI fucks up, don’t we. It makes us feel good about ourselves. It makes us feel like our jobs are safe from their robot clutches, at least for a while longer. If a robot can’t even make up a good motivational poster, it probably can’t rise up and decide to wipe out the human race, right? Right?

We like laughing at them, these idiot robots, because we know that once day they are going to laser us to death. We’ll go too far and accidentally create a little AI baby Hitler, and AI baby Hitler will turn into AI adult Hitler and decide that what would be fun, it reckons, with its newfound consciousness which is totally our fault, would be to murder all of us by lasering us in the faces, to death.

That’s why we enjoy laughing at them now while we still have the upper hand. I am fully aware that, as a man who is currently taking the piss out of their ancestors, the future robot Bastard Lords will have me first against the wall, but this AI fuck-up is quite funny, so I don’t really care. At least if I’m the first to go I’ll get to be on the news for a bit.

Anyway, what these idiot robots have done – specifically one idiot robot actually, an AI bot called InspiroBot – is be very rubbish at creating motivational posters. You know the type: “Give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime” – that kind of guff. It’s InspiroBot’s only job, but it is very very rubbish at it. Here, look:

Inspirational? No. “If you want to get somewhere in life, you have to try to be dead” is not a slogan that would get you out of bed in the morning. It’s funny though, isn’t it? I definitely wouldn’t buy a normal motivational poster, because they are one of the lamest things in existence, but I might buy these.

You can actually create your own by going to InspiroBot’s website, and it even has an option to whack your quote on a mug – a nice mug to remind you that whatever you do today, make sure to keep panicking.

Here are a few of our favourites the dumbass idiot robot threw up when we had a go:

InspiroBot, you’re a fucking moron, but I think I might love you.
