A few days ago I wrote an article about how Google’s image recognition software could be used to produce some spectacularly weird, trippy and downright unsettling images. Well, what I hadn’t noticed at the time was that Google had open sourced the code.
For those of you that don’t like to tinker with code, there are a few websites already up that have done all the hard work for you such as Psychic VR Lab and Deep Neural Net Dreams, though they are being crushed by the flow of traffic as I write this.
For those of you with fragile minds and stomachs (who nevertheless clicked on this post despite the picture above) I would advise you not to scroll further. For those of you still with me. here are some of the results others have posted on the web using the hashtag #deepdream. Don’t say you weren’t warned.
