Computers learn to paint using neural networks

Deep, or machine learning is a process of “teaching” a computer to accomplish a task by giving it vague outlines and letting it fail until it can figure out a problem.We’ve written about it being used to teach RC cars to drift and master complicated games, but now it’s being used to create art. The process, which is outlined in a scientific journal titled “Combining Markov Random Fields and Convolutional Neural Networks for Image Synthesis” looks at two images: a base image and a “style” image. Using a process similar to how neural networks work in the brain, a computer can “learn” the distinct artistic look of the style image, and then apply that to the base image. This means that famous painters and artists long dead can be used to create…
