Google Artificial Neural Networks – A collection

19 Oct

A few months ago the internet was raging about the new psychedelic videos released by Google. Apparently, when you take Google’s artificial neural networks (ANN) which recognize patterns in images and cause them to reiterate in loops, highly psychedelic patterns emerge, which caused many to ponder the ways in which these ANN’s can teach us about the psychedelic nature of reality and our consciousness. While Samy has already dedicated a great post to this issue,  it seems like a good time for a retrospective of the Google ANN phenomena. So here are some of those psychedelic mind boggling courtesy of Google’s Deep Dream algorithm.

First some explanation of how these images are created:
