These beetles do not exist

Check out this pithy report by Rob Beschizza describing an amazing AI program called Confusing Coleopterists. In brief, this program was trained on illustrations of extant beetles from existing zoological textbooks. In the words of Mr Beschizza: “The extreme formality of this art genre, and its placement within the public domain, makes it uniquely apt to the medium of generative adversarial networks ….” (Hat tip: Cliff Pickover.) Note: Imagine unleashing a “positivist AI” on the entire U.S. Code or the Supreme Court reporter. What new laws or SCOTUS decisions would it generate?
