Want to know how a Google's image-recognition
algorithms see the world?
Wanna see what they come up with if you run them in reverse instead?

Okay, okay. I hear you
tripping out. What the hay is going on?
Well, someone else already explained it in this video:
...And heck, there's even video-filters
for this thing. [link]
...Although I haven't bothered to check where to find 'em, all I got's that video. TL;DW
Google made the code Open Source, and now there's free websites like dreamdeeply.com
, where everybody
can make their own crazy
surreal art, with the press of a button
....... and anywhere between 30 seconds and 5+ minutes of wait-time. Before / After:
So far, dreamdeeply.com
's the best and fastest site I've seen. A few hints:
For even crazier results, run the thing again on its result, with a different filter.
In my experience - it does sometimes say "internal error"
or "Error - please choose a different picture"
, but then, after a few minutes or so the page refreshes and the picture is there anyway. Just leave the tab open and come back later.
Bit odd that it throws an error message but then works anyway, but I sure ain't complaining.
Let's see what wacky stuff comes out the other end for you!
