Google’s DreamScope App Turns Your Photos into Surreal Art

Google’s research on artificial neural networks aims to improve image classification and speech recognition. They train these neural networks with literally millions of examples. But they also used simple techniques to visualize how these networks learn.  They then wondered,  “whether neural networks could become a tool for artists—a new way to remix visual concepts—or perhaps even shed a little light on the roots of the creative process in general.”  The  DeepDream code they developed has just been released to the public to play with as the Dreamscope web app .  What it does is to turn your photos into surreal art.
