An image of the Pope Francis wearing a white thermal jacket has gone viral.
The funny thing is that this picture is not real and was generated by a artificial intelligence (AI).
The pope with AI-generated style.
The image was apparently generated by the Midjourney artificial intelligence and was shared in Redditwithin a forum of enthusiasts of the IA.
It was then shared in the social networks. Many users knew its provenance, while others thought it was real, noting the “style” of the Pope Francis.
The original publication shows the four alternatives created by. Midjourney. These reveal the limitations that still plague the imager.
Details such as the hands, the chain and the lenses of the Pope Francis look unrealistic or poorly generated.
Another pair of images generated a character that doesn’t look that much like the Pope Francis.
