Random design #27

What’s more random than a Rorschach test?

That’s what I explored this week, thanks to Paul Stuffa original code design. But I didn’t stop there, I took the results to a friendly AI using a convolutional neural network to analyze images. What surprised me most is that the result is one of the least recombined images the AI ever sent me back – and I’ve tried many before with other subjects.

Is my friendly computer-vision AI Rorschach’s shy? If it only it could talk – I’m sure I would have an interesting computer personality profile too!

Random design #16

Different sizes and perspective of the same original sample of 2 and 6 neurons randomly communicating with each other. The blue tiles – 2 neurons communicating in 2 layers. The tan tiles, 6 neurons communicating in 6 layers.

Not much difference it seems, but there is a nice fractal dimension to it and it makes for a very orderly tiling too!

I guess I should thank Daniel Smilkov and Shan Carter for writing this script for TensorFlow. Good job!

Neural network – the Eldorado of randomness!

This image is a representation of a neural network – thanks to our friends at Tensorflow. Confused? It could be my brain, your brain at work looking at this pictures as thousand – maybe million of our neurons random-connect to each other every millisecond to interpret and make sense of what we see. Not convinced? That’s how AI are been trained to solve problems & be smarter. 

A mind is a pretty thing – if we can make sense of it!

Random design #6

Not quite done with last week’s random pattern.

I found the tiles color blending so intriguing and pleasant, I had to take it to my favorite AI. And this is what she saw!

I took last week background (red & blue), inverted it (yellow & green) and let the AI recompose the two images.

It’s the second time an artificial being sends me back a very painterly image. Almost a fabric pattern in the background! I drafted a simple 3D composition in the foreground to increase the contrast between human-robot visual rendering perception. How odd!

Random design #3 – AI poetry

Random design #3

A Watercolor?

What are the chances of a robot seeing my work? Many. What are the chances of a robot showing me what it sees? Very few!

Thanks to the Deepdream team, I took my two previous work to their random algorithm – and this is what the AI saw.

I haven’t done watercolor in years! I didn’t know robots had watercolor dreams! I was so surprised I (almost) left it as is. I put actual image #1 in the background to show where the transformation started from.
