Representations of famous artworks spawned from the artificial neural network released earlier this month by Google in an attempt to show how computers ‘view’ the world by recognising and emphasising patterns in otherwise abstract shapes.

It’s a little like the human phenomenon of pareidolia except with more nightmare fuel.

It’s called ‘deepdream art’ and it’s all over the Twitter, the Tumblr and the Reddit, should you wish to delve deeper.

    I really don’t like the fact that I keep seeing these pictures everywhere. Please make it stop.

        They’re already (mostly) surrealist paintings.
        Except now they look gack.
        Like a mindless algorithm screwed them up.
        Like it would.

    Computers do not view the world. An algorithm written by humans processes the images and the results are entirely predictable based on that algorithm.

        AI is just an algorithm and the one above is simply a more advanced version of a Photoshop macro. It is 100% predictable unless the algorithm has deliberately included a random number generator to seed the results, in which case, it is still not ‘viewing’ anything. We may eventually get to a point where AI is truly conscious but until that day the algorithms are just a bunch of commands that produce predictable results.

          The ELI5s (ExplainLikeI’m5) are excellent. We may develop something intricate enough to fool us very soon but I think a true machine intelligence might be quite alien to us.

    If only the people who came up with this crap were familiar with PS.Just another filter.
