We all have dreams, some we remember and many more are fleeting images that are forgotten as soon as we awaken. The folks at Google began a process in June last year they dubbed “inceptionism,” in an effort to understand how artificial intelligence (AI) interprets the world. Basically, Google engineers were intent on finding out how AI neural networks carried out classification tasks so engineers could further improve the system. The neural networks had to be trained to identify images, and as they “learned,” the network began to gradually adjust its parameters and learned to recognize visual patterns.
