The header on the image says,

DALL•E mini
AI model generating images from any prompt!

The box beneath the header repeats the title of the image -- 'pingu playing chess with a grizzly bear in iceland' -- next to a 'Run' button. As for the images, in DALL-E Wikipedia says,

DALL-E and DALL-E 2 are transformer models developed by OpenAI to generate digital images from natural language descriptions. Its name is a portmanteau of WALL-E and Salvador Dalí. DALL-E was revealed by OpenAI in a blog post in January 2021, and uses a version of GPT-3 modified to generate images.

If that doesn't make sense to you, Wikipedia explains 'transformer models', 'OpenAI', 'natural language', 'portmanteau', 'WALL-E', 'Salvador Dalí', and 'GPT-3'. If that still doesn't make sense to you, you're on your own.
