#deepdream video

July 23, 2015

I’ve been reading with interest the developments by Google in Neural Network image recognition and how it drives their Inceptionism Deep Dreaming. You are effectively forcing a computer to hallucinate and the results are extraordinary.

My first thought was “How can we run video through this?”
I started experimenting with animated gifs – manually stripping out frames and using the dreamdeeply.com website to process them. The results of these can be seen below. In the last few days there have been several libraries uploaded that allow batch processing of frames on home machines, which means that large sections of video can be processed efficiently. This processed clip from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas really broke my mind. I’m hoping to get these libraries installed and play more with this technique.

I’ve linked the animations below behind poster images, as they are quite large and heavy to load.
