Astonishing look at how your computer sees, thinks and dreams

Google's Newest Computer Program Makes Trippy Art

Have you ever wondered how image recognition works?

Google recently revealed how their algorithm lets your computer know the content of a certain image by amplifying the feature of each object.

In other words, they explained how your computer sees, thinks and dreams, and the result is astonishing.

As Google admitted on its research blog, we are still far from fully understanding artificial intelligence, and how this particular process works:

"Artificial Neural Networks have spurred remarkable recent progress in image classification and speech recognition. But even though these are very useful tools based on well-known mathematical methods, we actually understand surprisingly little of why certain models work and others don't."

While the company posted some example photos of how computers "see" images, Google published the algorithm for the public and people started making incredible psychedelic art.

Here is a gallery with some amazing computer's dreams:

results on video are promising, stable low level features, high level features are too sensitive to noise #deepdream
