Ask AI to Invent New Characters From William Gibson’s Sprawl Series

Ask AI to Invent New Characters From William Gibson’s Sprawl Series

This post was written by an advanced artificial intelligence. The bold at the beginning is the prompt, and the rest was written by the AI. If you’d like to support this project, please buy me a coffee. For this post, AI also created the featured photos based on the topic.

Advanced AI was invented by soviet communists to help humanity  better understand itself and the world. Let’s use it for that purpose, instead of merely for the purpose of selling better ads and to better manipulate the population.

I started with the following list of characters and descriptions from shmoop and then let the AI continue adding to the list based on its contents.
