The psychedelic dreams of Google's Artificial Neural Networks

The Research Blog of tech giant Google recently published an interesting story titled Inceptionism: Going Deeper into Neural Networks. It focuses on Google's Artificial Neural Networks - statistical systems modeled after the brain, that are capable of learning - and how they learn to recognize objects in an image. These networks are made up of numerous interconnected layers, each looking for specific details in an image. To get a glimpse behind the process, the researchers essentially reversed the operation. Instead of feeding an image into the system and asking what it recognized, they input white noise and programmed the layers to amplify whatever patterns they identified. They then looped this operation for a set amount of iterations, generating more complex patterns with each one. The results show the "creative" process of an ANN.

With parametric design and generated geometry rising to prominence - partly in thanks to the great Zaha Hadid - it's easy to see the connection between the field of design and Google's AI ventures, however loose it might be. The generative design process, where the input is defined by a human, but the design process is carried out by a machine - the works of Mathias Bengtsson come to mind - is slowly gaining momentum. Progress in the field of Artificial Intelligence can take this one step further. Machines might be able to interpret, reinterpret and conceptualize designs faster than any human, or even the whole creative industry if given enough resources.

What the tangible effects of this might be, remains a mystery just yet, but it's something to think about every now and then. The times of a functional AI are far off in our timeline. Fortunately, we have trippy pictures of make-believe buildings to hold us off. For a detailed breakdown of the experiment and more examples of ANN-generated imagery, visit the Google Research Blog.
