A Masterpiece of Deep Learning: GTC Provides Canvas for a Revolutionary Style of Artificial …

Can a machine become an artist? One of the most beautiful demos at this year’s GPU Technology Conference might help make up your mind. The DCGAN, or deep convolutional generative adversarial networks, demo has a computer take thousands of works of art that share similar features — say seascapes from Victorian artists. It then processes them using deep learning to create new images in the same style. That’s good news if you’re a fan of a long dead painter, but DCGAN is about much more than pretty pictures. More Than Pretty Pictures Based on work by Facebook’s Soumith Chintala, DCGAN demonstrates unsupervised learning, considered by many to be the holy grail in the quest for true AI.   To create the DCGAN demo, we trained the deep learning system with…
