ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE has been asked to predict what children on Mars will look like and the results are not good news for the future of humanity.
Scientists suspect that life on Mars will have several strange and negative effects on the human body, and no one knows how this will affect childbirth.
The US Sun asked DALL·E, artificially intelligent software, to make the prediction, and it came up with some chillingly realistic-looking results.
Entering keywords such as “children on Mars” and “baby born in space”, DALL·E displayed several different concepts.
One shows a baby with no face and missing fingers floating in space.
Another shows a very futuristic looking boy and girl with worried faces and huge hairstyles.
Nasa and Elon Musk have set themselves the goal of sending humans to the Red Planet within the next few decades.
As they work out the logistics, other researchers wonder what the new environment would do to the human body.
It’s possible that Martian colonists could eventually evolve into a new type of human.

Astronauts staying on the International Space Station have experienced weakened bones.
If these effects can occur in astronauts over a short period of time, scientists believe that being in space full-time could drastically change the way we build.
Shrinking skulls can lead to neurological disorders.
Weak bones and muscles can have other health complications.
Mars is farther from the sun than our planet and a normal day can look like a cloudy day on Earth.
This darker environment could change the human eye over time.
Other challenges include space radiation, which people would need to protect themselves from at all times.
Mars has an atmosphere much thinner than Earth’s and there is no magnetic field protection.
That means people would have to find a way to survive the high levels of cancer-causing radiation.
What is DALL E AI?
DALL·E is a machine learning model developed by OpenAI to conjure up unusual images from keyword prompts.
Developed in 2021, DALL E is known as the Transformer language model that can turn almost any idea into images.
“It receives both the text and the image as a single stream containing up to 1280 tokens and is trained with maximum probability to generate all the tokens in sequence,” it says Open AI.
“This training technique allows DALL E not only to create an image from scratch, but also to regenerate any rectangular region of an existing image that extends to the lower-right corner in a way that matches the text prompt. “
DALL·E was named after Pixar’s Wall-E The big topic.
