WATCH: More DeepDream obsessions

Since Cory posted about the Deep Dream image recognition algorithm last month (and Rob earlier today) it's inspired an explosion of iterations like Roelof Pieters' DeepDreamed Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas.

Using the movement's hashtag #deepdream, Twitter user Marpi_ tweeted a pretty freaky one: "this is when #deepdream starts to creep me out a bit. a strange creature appears where my friends' son is looking at "



Milek Smyk noted the similarities between DeepDream iterations and artist Louis Wain's shift from consensus reality to his later neurodiverse state of experience.


This deep dive into the neural network layers is also pretty trippy:
