Inceptionism: Trippy new artform from the Google people...
« on: June 23, 2015, 11:29:06 AM »
I saw a post about this on reddit.   Pretty cool.

Apparently the people at Google took the Google Image search picture recognition technology and pointed it at itself in some kind of feedback loop or some kind of thing...  I don't really understand it, but the results distinctively remind me of when I tried dropping acid back in the 1980s.  (Not recommended kids).  Anyway, the gallery is here:

An extra trippy thing I noticed is that parts of the edges of some of the images "overlap" as in a repeating tilable pattern.  Here are a couple of screenshots as examples of the partial overlapping.

there's an amazing sense of relief in some of those - almost like old-fashioned embossed wallpaper...

this prob my favourite though

I can't wait until there's technology to let us create our own...   :P

... Remember those amazing images from last week that looked like a computer having an acid trip? What if you could watch them live?
A group of PhD students from Belgium have created a Twitch livestream which lets viewers look in to the mind of a neural network as it “dreams”. ...

I'm not sure what a "live stream" is... 
I wasn't able to view the video (or whatever it is) on my Kindle FHD, but can on my laptop...  Pretty trippy.

Zoiks! Looks like they cut the feed when it started dreaming about eating people and world domination.
