The artificial intelligence Midjourney generated four images when asked about the leader of the next century and the results are puzzling.
Midjourney , one of the most popular artificial intelligences (AI) today, has become the new oracle for a large number of Internet users and there are already several who are using it to answer all kinds of questions with images due to that it generates illustrations based on a textual description.
Although the range of queries to a Beta version of the IA is wide, one of the most interesting questions has come thanks to the GameStar portal . The page was encouraged to ask “who will rule the world in the next 100 years?”in the hope of obtaining some concise image of the leader or leaders of the next century now that the international situation and peace among world powers hangs in the balance.
The disconcerting images of the next world leader
Midjourney is the same image-generating AI that a user used to win an art contest without the judges knowing a few weeks ago. This AI is very popular and if a person wants to get results from its Beta version, they can do so by simply joining their Discord server and entering a text preceded by the command “/imagine” in one of their channels.
In this way, Midjourney generates four images for each text that is fed, and the style of the art that is obtained as a result usually has an artistic tone as if it were a canvas. GameStar got some photos that were both interesting and intriguing because they were all related to catastrophic scenes or very accurate considering the events of the last few years.
The first consists of a large-scale nuclear explosion . The second shows an army of soldiers looking towards the horizon as if it were a dictatorial regime. The third, although confusing, can be interpreted as the extinction of the Earth due to the increase in the temperature of the Sun. Finally, we have one where a group of people dressed in black are walking towards a huge golden door with a sphere on top.
Next, you can see the images obtained by the medium through artificial intelligence and draw your own conclusions.
AI and world domination of the next century
It is a fact that the nature of these images often have negative connotations because the AI processes the totalitarian nuance that “only a few will rule the world” present in the question. Although images are only obtained thanks to Midjourney , the Genbeta portal asked the same question to the OpenAI artificial intelligence and obtained the following answer:
“There is no definitive answer to this question. It is impossible to say definitively who will rule the world in 100 years. However, it is possible to make some predictions based on current trends.
The most populous country today is China , with more than 1.4 billion citizens. India ranks second, with more than 1.3 billion citizens. If current trends continue, these two countries are likely to continue to dominate the world in terms of population.
In terms of economic power, the United States is currently the largest economy in the world. China is second, and India is third. If current trends continue, China is likely to overtake the United States as the world’s largest economy in the next 100 years.
In terms of military power, the United States is currently the most powerful country in the world. China is second and Russia is third. If current trends continue, China is likely to overtake the United States as the world’s most powerful military in the next 100 years.
In terms of political power, the United States is currently the most powerful country in the world. China is second and Russia is third. If current trends continue, China is likely to overtake the United States .
