Combining real-time weather data with generative AI
Try it at WeatherPainting.com
What happens when we connect real-world information to AI's rapidly-expanding creative skills?
Can AI's generative speed and scale capabilities help us understand the world around us in new ways?
The Impressionist Weather Report uses real-time weather data to make AI-generated art in the style of impressionist oil paintings.
Location, date, time and weather data are compiled into a prompt and sent to OpenAI's Dall-E image generator, delivering real-time depictions of any location on the planet.
Our typical relationship with weather information is based on utility: we use weather information to help make choices about what we do and how we do it.
But what if we could use weather data to tell a different story—to paint pictures of the world in a way that wouldn't have been possible in the past?
Assembling an army of human impressionist painters to paint any location on Earth in an instant would be impossible, but AI's text-to-image ability can help us do this for the first time.
WeatherPainting.com launched in April, 2023 and was used to generate over 4,000 paintings in less than 4 days, with users in 5 continents.
