Planetizen founder Chris Steins recently published a Medium post collecting 20 AI-generated images of cities that push the boundaries of imagination.

For the uninitiated, Steins helpfully provides this description of how AI-generated images work:

An AI image generation service creates images using a machine learning technique called Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs). To create images of cities, the AI is trained on images of cities, and then it can generate new images of a future city based on a prompt — a set of words or phrases provided by the image creator. The AI algorithm uses a feedback loop to improve the images it produces, making them increasingly realistic.

The post, linked below, showcases 20 images, varying from a “Cyberpunk Barcelona” to versions of New York that replace rooftops and streets with trees.
