Happy Thanksgiving from Synthetic Engineers! To celebrate the holiday, we thought we’d ask DALL-E to “cook” us a thanksgiving meal of AI-generated imagery.

The table is already set, so let’s begin!

Before we can enjoy our meal, DALL-E needs to spend some time cooking, of course. Thanks to the power of generative AI, we can go from zero to a fully cooked bird in about 15 seconds!

Yum! You can almost smell the diffusers stabilizing!

Of course, DALL-E wouldn’t forget the sides dishes. Those are the best part of the meal.

We’ve got the traditional mashed potatoes.

You weren’t supposed to put the festive decor in the potatoes, DALL-E! But whatever, you’re a robot–what did we expect?

Let’s get some stuffing going here, too.

Okay, let’s eat. DALL-E, would you do the honors?

What, you thought it was going to have human hands??

Delicious! Thanks for a great meal, DALL-E! Happy Thanksgiving, and enjoy your real thanksgiving meal, everyone, from your friends here at Synthetic Engineers.
