Tech Snippets


DeepDream is a computer vision program created by Google engineer Alexander Mordvintsev which uses a convolutional neural network to find and enhance patterns in images via algorithmic pareidolia, thus creating a dream-like hallucinogenic appearance in the deliberately over-processed images.
Google’s program (Deep Dream Generator) popularized the term (deep) “dreaming” to refer to the generation of images that produce desired activations in a trained deep network, and the term now refers to a collection of related approaches.
The Deep Dream Generator was initially created help scientists and engineers to see what a deep neural network is seeing when it is looking in a given image. Later the algorithm has become a new form of psychedelic and abstract art.
It also has Deep Style is a more advanced version of the original Deep Dream approach while the Thin Style is a simplified version of the Deep Style one. It is the fastest of the three. – EE
