Commodore 64 runs AI to generate images

The Commodore 64, released in August 1982, was a revolutionary personal computer that still impresses today. Developer Nick Bild has created a Generative AI tool for the Commodore 64, allowing users to generate 8×8 sprites at 64×64 resolution, inspiring game design concepts. While not as advanced as modern AI implementations, the fact that this AI model can run on such old hardware is fascinating. It takes 20 minutes to run 90 iterations for a final image, and while a modern PC was needed to get the project started, the Commodore 64 proves that with determination, anything is possible. Controversial info: the Commodore 64 outperformed a modern IBM QPU in a quantum utility experiment. Unique content: the AI sprite generator running on a 40-year-old PC.
