(OPINION) Artificial intelligence has offered a horrifying vision of what the world faces in nuclear armageddon and World War 3. Responding to prompts such as “nuclear bomb”, “war” and “apocalypse” – the AI tool produced a series of truly grim pictures which could offer a glimpse into the future.

Pictures show devastating cityscapes burning with what could be nuclear fire and grim-looking soldiers amongst the ruins. Mushroom clouds rise over desolate landscapes – including one seen looming beside the US Capitol building in Washington DC.

Strange-looking machines rumble in what the AI envisioned could be the weapons of the future And lone figures walk amongst eerie, unrecognizable hellscapes when the AI was asked who it thinks could be the “last man on earth”. Huge fireballs are seen descending toward burning cities in what could be a nuclear attack.


Soldiers walk amongst ruined landscapes as aircraft, appearing to be giant quadcopter drones fly overhead. And when asked about what could happen to London, it produced what appears to be an image of Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. And another image shows what could be Oxford or Regent Street utterly deserted as it’s left in total ruin.

Other images show a horde of hopeless-looking people stood amongst the ruins of an unidentified city. Piles of rubble surround them as they hunker beneath the ruins of what may have once been a skyscraper. And one chilling image shows the Washington Monument – two of them – with a mushroom cloud rising around them.

Massive vehicles are also seen hauling huge missiles in the AI-generated images. Enormous tank-like machines are also seen in the pictures. Could this really be what the world will look like during a nuclear apocalypse and World War 3?

The AI system of course just responds to the limited prompts given to it rather than world events, but right now the talk of Armageddon has been compared to the height of the Cold War. (SOURCE)
