Watch How Google's Artificial Brain Transforms Images In Real Time

This Artist Is Making Haunting Paintings With Google's Dream Robot

It’s been a week of nightmarish image-making, thanks to the public release of Google’s “DeepDream” algorithm. If you missed this whole thing, let me explain: DeepDream is an artificial neural network that Google originally developed to identify the contents of an image using computer vision.
