Artificial intelligence predicts what the last selfie before the end of the world will look like. Beware, not for the faint of heart. Obviously, no one listened to the advice of Greta Thunberg …
What will the last selfies before the end of the world look like? What facial expression will the person who will be photographing have a few seconds before the apocalypse?
It’s a question we’d rather not even ask, but that doesn’t apply to Robot Overloards: a TikTok account followed by 200,000 people whose bio promises “daily disturbing AI-generated images.”
To get a sense of Doomsday, the videographer used an AI-based image generator. He asked her to take “the very last selfie.”
Apocalypse between heaven and hell
Yu should have heard about creative AI by now. DALL•E someone asked him to take “the last selfie on earth”, the result is accurate pic.twitter.com/zVnO5QdSIa

In response, the AI created a series of frightening images of emaciated skeletal characters in a devastated environment. It is curious, however, that some of these dying figures are in the celestial environment…
It is likely that this vision of Armageddon was created by artificial intelligence based on the many descriptions of the afterlife gleaned from the Internet. That’s why the end result looks like a mixture of heaven and hell.
In every frame, it seems that there is a huge explosion behind the character’s shoulder. One of them is also surrounded by a cloud of smoke.
DALL-E or Midjourney?
The creator of this video does not specify which text-to-image AI system was used to generate the image. There are links to both OpenAI’s DALL-E 2 and Midjourney.
Created by OpenAI, DALL-E is an artificial intelligence capable of creating images from texts. Having studied millions of texts, she learned to understand the relationship between images and the texts that describe them.
The latest version, DALL-E 2, has been available in beta since July 2022 and is one of the most advanced tools in the field.
For its part, Midjourney bills itself as “a small, self-funded design, human infrastructure, and artificial intelligence team.” Still, these apocalyptic AI selfies are impressive.
Netizens horrified by AI predictions

This video has already been viewed more than 10 million times on the social network, and 14,000 Internet users have reacted to it. One of them explains that he will “just continue to stay awake.”
Another user believes that these selfies do not appear to have been taken on the planet Earth, but that one of them appears to have been taken directly on the Moon. However, it is possible that the Earth will eventually become like the Moon …
The Observer, a TikTok user, also notes that “all the backgrounds are the same, taken from different angles.” Finally, the user hopes that “by then we will have the opportunity to live on another planet” …
