Dec 4 2023 Share

Malta.ai has tried the ongoing trend of asking artificial intelligence to intensify a particular quality on an image – in this case, making the boy in the image progressively more Maltese.

The boy starts out as a humble local lad before suddenly growing up into a bearded fisherman. Following an other de-ageing, he takes on knightly qualities.

Clad in armour and standing gigantically in a Maltese port, he then transcends his humanity as is typical of this trend. 

What do you make of this fun little experiment?

Oxford University Press Chooses “Rizz” As Word Of The Year 2023

Oxford University Press Chooses "Rizz" As Word Of The Year 2023
Dec 4 2023 Share

If you possess the ability to charm or flirt with potential partners, you might already have “rizz,” the Oxford Word of the Year for 2023. 

Primarily used by young people, “rizz” is an internet slang term denoting romantic appeal or charm. Oxford lexicographers selected it from a shortlist of eight words representing the mood and preoccupations of 2023, as determined by a public vote.

The term, widely popularised on platforms like TikTok, is defined as style, charm, or attractiveness, especially concerning the ability to attract romantic or sexual partners. It is believed to be a condensed form of the word “charisma” and can be used as a verb, as in “to rizz up,” meaning to attract or seduce someone.

Other contenders on the shortlist included “beige flag,” describing a partner perceived as boring or lacking originality, and “situationship,” referring to a non-formal or established romantic or sexual relationship. 

The Oxford University Press clarified that words without draft definitions are already present in the Oxford English Dictionary, while those with drafts may be added after evaluating their longevity, frequency, and breadth of usage. Notably, the previous year’s word was “goblin mode,” representing unapologetically self-indulgent behaviour.
