This bizarre short film is actually an incredibly interesting experiment in Artificial Intelligence and machine learning. As part of a series of experimental videos, a pre-trained deep neural network (we don’t know either) was shown a webcam feed and made predictions on what it was being shown based on images it had previously been shown. Basically, the videos explore how we contextualise what we see based on what we already know – for this video the network had been fed a stream of images of classic painting of landscapes and flowers, so whatever it could see it would project as variations of these paintings. It’s a very cool concept that leads to a weird visual effect, with the AI making a dishcloth appear to be a moving seascape, and car keys and phone chargers a still life paintings of daisies and other flowers. Follow the link below to read more about the project, because they explain it a whole lot better than we do and it’s actually very interesting…
