In the summer of 2015, Google unveiled a visualization tool named Deep Dream. Deep Dream was an artificial neural network — a series of simple algorithms linked together, in an approximation of the neurons in a mammal’s brain. Programmers gave Deep Dream a curious task: not to analyze photos like other recognition software, but to over-interpret the images. Google engineers likened Deep Dream to the children’s game of spotting shapes in the clouds. Where Google explored artificially intelligent reveries, Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers are now wondering, just in time for Halloween, whether an algorithm could generate night terrors. The artificial intelligence is called the Nightmare Machine. And true to its name, it’s creepy. Google, like its “don’t be evil” former motto, did not aim for horror show.
