    Google brain creates horse-riding acid trip dog knights

    WHY ARE GOOGLE’S NEURAL NETWORKS MAKING THESE BRAIN-MELTING IMAGES?



    The acid trip you’re looking at is the result of a feedback loop occurring in an artificial neural network, which is a series of algorithm “layers” acting like neurons do in the brain. These networks can learn — each neuron connection can adjust its own “weighting”and prioritization — and with practice become much better. Google does this with their image-recognizing neural networks by feeding them millions of photos and adjusting the layers until the output is correct. The ultimate goal is to have a program that could see any kind of picture with a dog in it, for example, no matter the lighting, orientation, color, etc., and tell us there’s a dog in the photo.

    For these trippy images however, Google engineers decided to look into what each neural network layer was doing as it looked for certain image aspects, starting with basic components like edges and lines, and ending with “dog”.
    ...

    Google calls this technique of diving deep into the abstractions of images at certain layers of image recognition “Inceptionism”.


    Cool little surprise gift of the internet age.

    Oh God, Someone Ran Fear and Loathing Through Google's Neural Network

    http://gizmodo.com/oh-god-someone-ra...s-n-1716036990

    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.

    Some sinister Github user recently published a set of instructions that enable anyone to pump video through Deep Dream. As proof of concept, he gave a scene from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas the hallucination treatment.

    Just as you saw in the still images, the neural network generates bizarre swirls and shapes of unidentifiable creatures. But when everything is moving, the scene becomes more psychedelic than your worst LSD flashback—no drugs required!

    You can do more than just watch a Hunter S. Thompson epic with this utility. The Deep Dream Video process will work with any video or audio. You might want to avoid doing actual drugs when watching neural network-generated content. Sounds dangerous.

    Well I dropped a ton of shrooms before the first time I saw Fear and Loathing...how much worse/crazier could it possibly be to do it and watch it in Google Deep Dream!?

    So where's the enhanced version of Altered States?
    That was THE movie to watch on acid the year it came out...
