Some Sadist Ran A Donald Trump Speech Through Google's Neural Network

Some Sadist Ran a Donald Trump Speech Through Google's Neural Network

Artificially intelligent computers understand Donald Trump not unlike artificially intelligent humans. His speeches read as extended phrases of semi-clarity interrupted by moments of utter horror. Just watch.

The above video comes from photographer Eric Cheng who explained:

The source video is a CNN highlights reel from Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy announcement in July 2015. I used audio volume (averaged over each frame) to dictate how deep to dream. For fun, I used a picture of Cthulu as a guide image.

Cthulu meets Trump as understood by an A.I. that can dream. Welcome to the state of American politics in 2016.
