    These quotes were genearated by a huge language model from OpenAI called GPT-3.  After prompting the model with real quotes by famous artists like “Art is a line around your thoughts” (Gustav Klimt) and “To be an artist is to believe in life” (Henry Moore), GPT-3 responded with a wide range of its own quotes.  A small […]

Those that are unreliable are gradually […]
