Here’s How Google Deep Dream Generates Those Trippy Images

You might know Google Deep Dream from the trippy, layered images it produces—some are like a digital cross between Dali and Van Gogh on acid. The Deep Dream Generator is a computer vision platform that allows users to input photos into the program and transform them through an artificial intelligence algorithm. This video by Computerphile, an educational Youtube channel about videos, explains just how Deep Dream works. The platform uses convolutional neural networks—a machine term for a forward-fed artificial neural network where neuron connectivity patterns respond to overlapping regions in the visual field—in order to enhance photo patterns with surreal effects. In simple terms, many levels of neural networks process the images input into the program. The artificial neurons are calculated and the weight of their sum processed through…
