System Shock studio angers fans by having an AI imagine its own evil AI

The best-laid plans of mice and men, per Robert Burns, can often go very wrong indeed, as the System Shock remake developer Nightdive Studios has just learned. The studio embarked on a little marketing stunt that probably seemed like a good idea at the time, which has been met with fierce pushback: It used the AI software Midjourney to create a  picture of Shodan.

We’ll get to the pushback but this isn’t the worst idea in the world: As the post with the image says, it’s “Designed by an immortal machine for an immortal machine” and, y’know, you’re not supposed to like Shodan or what she represents. You can even see why this felt like an appropriate experiment.
