But does this amount to creativity? Can we reasonably claim that deep learning produces art? By Zachary Chase Lipton, UCSD. comments Are deep neural networks creative? It seems like a reasonable question. Google’s “Inceptionism” technique transforms images, iteratively modifying them to enhance the activation of specific neurons in a deep net. The images appear trippy, transforming rocks into buildings or leaves into insects. Another neural generative model, introduced by Leon Gatys of the University of Tubingen in Germany, can extract the style from one image (say a painting by Van Gogh), and apply it to the content of another…
