Plutchik's Wheel of Emotions.
Using attnGAN, an AI made to transform words into images, I created 8 images. Each image represents one of the 8 basic emotions defined by the Plutchik's Wheel of Emotions.
As humans, can we define emotions?
Is it really possible to categorise them?
The AI uses 2 different datasets where people match images with keywords. Some images had also emotions between their keywords.
Using any word, the AI tries to create an image based on the totality of images related to that word it can find.
Anger was the only word the AI couldn’t find any picture in the dataset related to, resulting in the impossibility of creating images.
