New drone views

A weekend hike, to Samaria and the Jordan valley, yielded 3 new exciting drone views:

  • Tell el-Hilu – an archaeological mound, at the junction of Wadis el-Helwah and el-Malih
  • Khirbet Makhruk – Ruins of a large Canaanite fortified city and Israelite Kingdom period fortresses
  • Tel Rechov – one of the largest cities in the region during the LB and Iron Age I-IIa periods

Text-2-Image illustrations

Started to use Open AI tool of Dall-E 2 – a new AI (Artificial Intelligence) system that can create realistic images and art from a description in natural language.

First use in web page: Burnt House.

Also used Stable Diffusion online with text, such as: “Greeks battle Hasmoneans”:

Yet another good text-2-image: Craiyon

These programs are a branch of AI that generate data, such as drawings in this case, hence they are called Generative Artificial Intelligence. The illustrations provide supporting material to the descriptions in Therefore – future helps to shape the past!
