Think Your Street Needs a Redesign? Ask an AI

A Brooklyn-based artist is harnessing the power of DALL-E to reimagine roadways to be more friendly to pedestrians and bikes. 

What would a six-lane highway look like if it were replaced by a promenade bordered with trees and luxurious grass? DALL-E can now show you that easily.

Born out of the San Francisco lab of artificial intelligence company OpenAI, DALL-E generates photorealistic images based on a text prompt. You can also submit a picture and ask the AI to replace a specific area of it by whatever you like.
