Zu Halloween haben sie am MIT ein Neural Network auf Horror-Themes trainiert und generieren damit jede Menge Haunted Houses und Voodoo-Fratzen: „We use state-of-the-art deep learning algorithms to learn how haunted houses, or toxic cities look like. Then, we apply the learnt style to famous landmarks and present you: AI-powered horror all over the world!“
Since centuries, across geographies, religions, and cultures people try to innovate ways of scaring each other. Creating a visceral emotion such a fear remains one of the cornerstones of human creativity. This challenge is especially important in a time where we wonder what the limits of Artificial Intelligence are: Can machines learn to scare us? Towards this goal, we present you Haunted Faces and Haunted Places: computer generated scary imagery powered by deep learning algorithms and evil spirits!
