"Nothing" is meaningful

Constructed using the free availlable software RunWayML an open source AI solution which allows the use of a slew of different AI trained sets and provides means to use them on your own data

Using its text to image GAN (Generative Adversarial Neural Network) and selecting several sentences made of the abstract concepts: Television and Radio combined with some adjectives and nouns the following images were produced

The images themselves evoke a kind of eerie painterly atmosphere, which probably is caused by the un-understanding of the AI of the particular meaning of these concepts.

The dataset used appears to have the visual cognition of a 5 to 6 year old, it is interesting to see how this translates to the resulting outcome

Also interesting to note is that adding one or several spaces will change the output significantly. It is as if "nothing" is very meaningful for our AI!
