Prompted by “Inceptionism: Going Deeper into Neural Networks”: http://googleresearch.blogspot.co.uk/2015/06/inceptionism-going-deeper-into-neural.html
“The techniques presented here help us understand and visualize how neural networks are able to carry out difficult classification tasks, improve network architecture, and check what the network has learned during training. It also makes us wonder whether neural networks could become a tool for artists—a new way to remix visual concepts—or perhaps even shed a little light on the roots of the creative process in general.”
This technology is seriously impressive. If interested, definitely read the prompting piece, and see the other images there (some of them showing psychedelic quality suggestive of better understanding psychedelic perception alteration with respect to humanity’s neural networks).
