Scientists at MIT have with the „Nightmare Machine“ developed an AI, makes the images scary. The aim was to link the fears of artificial intelligence in general with terrifying images. It was on „Deep Learning“ resorted, an algorithm, the well Google begins at Deep Mind. Indeed, so far it works pretty well. As the following examples from the own Instagram account show. LiveScience to:
‚Deep-learning algorithms perform remarkably well in several tasks considered difficult or impossible,‘ Cebrian said. ‚Even though there is a lot of room for improvement, some of the faces already look remarkably creepy!‘
Once deep-learning algorithms understood the visual elements that were commonly perceived as spooky, they applied those styles to images of buildings and human faces — with chilling results.
