Loab, the Internet Demon
Loab is an AI-generated character developed by the OpenAI team as an example of what GPT-3 is capable of creating. Loab’s backstory, personality traits, and appearance were all generated by the language model, which was trained on a massive corpus of human-generated text. Despite being completely fictional, Loab has gained a following on social media and has sparked discussions about the creative potential of AI. Swedish-based musician and artist Supercomposite has worked extensively with Loab, and claims this is the first instance of an internet based cryptid.
