#DeepNeuralNet #LearningToSee (havin a hard time cos I'm playin w LR momentum gradclip etc in realtime - no post vfx, all from the DNN)
Following recent political horrors in US, FR, UK & my home TR, my computer's been having nightmares.
#LearningToSee (with Steve Reich)
this is what happens when you have a dirty dataset #LearningToSee #donaldtrump #theresamay #nigelfarage #receptayyiperdogan #marinelepen
more #LearningToSee: Dreaming Of Space (training on @apod). HQ version
.@apod #LearningToSee #DreamingOfSpace #WeAreMadeOfStarStuff #NotStyleTransfer (GAN trained on images from @NASAHubble)
I trained a #GAN on 150 art collections and now this is what it thinks of me v2. #LearningToSee #NotStyleTransfer
as gen deep models approach hyperreality in depths of uncanny valley, I'm still more fascinated by nightmares & 'failures' #LearningToSee
here's a few hallucinations of you-know-who in the pits of this high-dimensional space #LearningToSee #AfraidToDream #WannaSuckFace
ppl seeing F Bacon, J Nash, Picasso, Dali, Brakhage, Cronenberg, Munch, DaVinci. You see what you know. The loop is complete. #LearningToSee
I think I'm fascinated by this particular imagery bc I saw Yuzna's horror/satire Society as a kid. see ending if curious (NSFW+grotesque)
it's not just any gratuitous horror show, but a grotesque satirical look on non-egalitarian structures in society, rel bw power & workers
(prob too much for my 14yo brain :S)
I assume ppl make those connections, but of course I'm wrong. I see Yuzna's Society, I can't know what you see #YouAreWhatYouSee :)
I setup a #surveillance cam in my studio to let a #SHENANIGAN watch, learn and dream in realtime while I work. #LearningToSee after few hrs:
I've had a #SHENANIGAN watching for a few days & overnight. It was dreaming this when I came in this morning #LearningToSee (❤️chairs)
Amazing how quickly it adapts to change, eg me wearing brown/grey patterned shirt then white tshirt (+❤️that cherry sunburst les paul \m/ :)
#TrainingData. A brief, very incomplete survey of human (mostly western) Art:
#DeepLearning rly is magic. I've found a special seq of actions, when performed in correct order w precise timing, turns my pc off instantly
reminds me of the early days of #opencl #gpuwoes
#LearningToSee #HelloWorld working nicely while @quasimondo installs #xdegrees in bg. Once his massive bright screens go up -> #FailingToSee
I'm gonna have to build a wall. It's gonna be the best wall. And I'm gonna make Mario pay for it.
demo I showed at #kikk17. also @DocLab next week (full vid Good night & sweet dreams. #WeAreMadeOfStarDust #LearningToSee #WeSeeThingsAsWeAre #NSFW?
oh yea, twitter video compression :( vimeo version a bit better: Also, research 👇
