Google's Deep Dream

Google put their image recognition software into a feedback loop and produced Deep Dream.  Then they released the code into the wild.  At some later time, I want to post a bit about the theory behind deep learning, especially convolutional neural networks.

Anyhow, a good place to find Deep Dream images is reddit /r/deepdream.  Here's a google blog post describing the software.

From that post here's an image worth 1000 words about Deep Dream:

And, since I'm an artsy-fartsy kind of guy myself, I couldn't help but make a bunch of images with it from photos I've taken.
