Memo Akten’s Vimeo channel is full of fun visual experiments pushing the limits of deep learning and artificial intelligence, but his latest video, gloomy sunday, is an especially fascinating look at image processing and how an AI’s ability to see the world can be manipulated. The video features three examples of a trained deep neural network trying to understand images coming from a live webcam, based on what it’s seen before. Except that the ‘what it’s seen before’ part is limited to vast image collections of either ocean waves, fires, or flowers.
