By now we’ve seen everything from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas to Donald Trump to popular memes processed by neural networks like Google’s Deep Dream. They’re like bizarre drug trips, but without the drugs. But it was only recently that Alexander Reben was curious enough to see what a neural network would make of…
It’s been almost two years since Google liquefied our brains with its Deep Dream neural network and the nightmare-inducing images the technology created. But now, a team from the University of California, Berkeley is sort of doing the opposite—emphasis on “sort of.”
This glorious menagerie of dick-esque space-oblongs does not contain any actual dicks. Instead, it’s the result of an image manipulation experiment. A month ago, Yahoo launched an open-sourced neural network, called “open_nsfw,” that rates images on a scale of 0 (SFW) to 1 (NSFW). So Gabriel Goh created a Google…
Look at the dog-hand. Look at it.
Mother of god that’s cool-looking.
Google’s artificial intelligence has already taken on the form of a human nerd, but now it’s time for its next act. Can AI be an artist?
Artificially intelligent computers understand Donald Trump not unlike artificially intelligent humans. His speeches read as extended phrases of semi-clarity interrupted by moments of utter horror. Just watch.
Last summer, the internet was overrun with six-eyed dog faces, human legs that are actually slugs, and other images reminiscent of the day you ate magic mushrooms and feverishly explored your kitchen floor. In fact, these were the dreams of an AI developed by Google. And it was only a matter of time before the…
When will a neural network know who Donald Trump is? How long until one can come up with a joke on its own? How about recognize Yoda?
Lion fish. Petri dish. Dough. According to one very befuddled artificial neural network, all of these things can be found in the short intro to Star Trek: The Next Generation.
The first week of July 2015 will forever be known as the week the internet freaked out about a bunch of triiiiiiippy images generated by a snoozing computer. Please. In my day we didn’t need Google to help us see melting dog faces with six eyes that are actually snails with centipedes crawling on their shells. We did…
By now, the entire internet’s realized that Deep Dream, Google’s artificial neural network, is capable of some pretty trippy images. But what happens when you run a movie about acid trips through the acid trip generator? Fear and Loathing in your worst nightmares, that’s what.
