Google’s Abstract ‘Inceptionism’ Art Made By Artificial Neural Networks
By Yap Yen, 23 Jun 2015
This collection of images can be both mesmerising and creepy.
Demonstrated by Google, the images are created by artificial neural networks that use 10 to 30 stacked layers of artificial neurons to process an image and try to interpret what is being shown. As the networks try to recognise pieces of an image, they generate a heightened version of what they “see”.
However, the networks often misinterpret the source and result in “inceptionism” artwork, like buildings generated from trees. The networks are even able to process abstract images from simple static and color noise.
Google has presented a gallery of these “inceptionism” artwork. Scroll down and head over here to see more.
