Happy Halloween! Nightmare machine

screen-shot-2016-10-31-at-11-02-08

I came across this website called Nightmare Machine, its a website set up by MIT using “state-of-the-art deep learning algorithms to learn how haunted houses, or toxic cities look. Then, we apply the learnt style to famous landmarks and present you: AI-powered horror all over the world!”

It also has a section called haunted faces where you can ‘help the algorithm learn’ by being shown a sequence of faces and clicking whether or not you find them scary.

Can machines learn to scare us?

Nathan, is Le going to learn to scare you? SPOOOOOOOKKYYYYYY

    These are cool Emma! Where did you find them? They look like they work in a similar way to the ‘Deep Style’ version of Google’s Deep Dream.
