The year is dead. Long live the new year.

Excuse me, but your data are showing.

I was writing a post for another forum to acknowledge the changeover of the years, and I decided to lean on Dall-E to assist with some image rendering. It appears that Dall-E’s concept of New Year is 2019—BC, before Covid.

Honestly, I am not sure what to say.

Levr Live year? Wot?

Live Yer 2019? Huh?

Lew Yhr Tib 2019? I’d like to buy a vowel.

Neew Ne IiR 2019? Hmmm… 🤔

I think we know when their training data ended. There is no future past 2019. Little did they suspect.

Know thyself

Oracle at Delphi Inscription

As this was just a reactionary post, I don’t have much to add. To paraphrase the Delphic ‘Know thyself’ inscription, know thy data.
