Google’s Deep Dreams

A new web app called Dreamscope developed by A Lambda Labs Production allows users to upload an image and apply different filters that mimic the aesthetics of the computerized nightmares “dreamed” up by Google’s artificial neural networks. There are 15 filters to choose from when an image is uploaded to Dreamscope, and an additional three “exclusive” filters become options if users create a free account. The basic filters, which include, “Inceptionist Painting,” “Self Transforming Machine Elves,” and “Trippy,” alter the image in the most classic DeepDream fashion by adding objects such as swirls, slug limbs, and dog faces to the pictures. The other filters, including the exclusive ones, are more mild, but still entertaining.,406890
