Google can dream
« on: July 07, 2015, 09:06:57 AM »
Google has been experimenting with artificial neural systems of late, it seems. The result? A computer hallucinating, and it's the most beautiful and terrifying thing I've ever seen. Truly fascinating stuff. Full link here.

Quote from: Gizmodo
The “Deep Dream” system essentially feeds an image through a layer of artificial neurons, asking an AI to enhance and build on certain features, such as edges. Over time, pictures can become so distorted that they morph into something entirely different, or just a bunch of colorful, random noise.

Here's an image fed into the algorith and 'dreamed about'.



And, here's the crazy part. It's on Twitch right now, and you can participate. Yes, you can be the internets sandman! This is what 2015 looks like people!

Oh gods, I didn't realize they released the source to this.

I feel like, instinctively, I know what I must now do.

Yep - you have to start with something else, then have it dream porn.  (Although with the freaky predilection it has for eyes, I think I'm going to pass on 'trying' to get it to dream porn.  Ken Russel's 'Gothic' comes to mind.)

The way I understand it, the thing has a list of 1000 subjects, mostly basic stuff like types of animals and plants and buildings, and each topic has a wide range of pictures associated with it. It will check the picture given to it for anything even remote similar to any of the thousands of pictures in the database. So... yeah, anything spherical will probably be compared to the pictures of eyes in the database. I'm not sure why it seems so prone towards dogs, though.

And you thought Goatse couldn't get any creepier. Just add staring eyeballs.

Well, building my own database, it'd probably put breasts where it currently puts eyes.

A friend sent me the links to the dreamified porn screenshots and said, "I think this is what the world would look like if you were God." I don't know how I feel about that   ???
