Have you been wondering how all those layers of neural networks really interact? The machine learning research site Distill is dedicated to clear and simple explanations of such complex issues. One article in particular is interesting for Deep Dreamers who wish to better understand what’s happening when they use DDG. The authors of “Feature Visualization: How Neural Networks Build up Their Understanding of Images” will walk you through the scientific nuts and bolts. Even if […]

Some deep dreamers post on Reddit. The dedicated subreddit features chronological posts of AI art interspersed with questions and information.
What is generative art? What is “generative art”? In a fairly recent definition by Jason Bailey from Artnome magazine, “generative art is art programmed using a computer that intentionally introduces randomness as part of its creation process.” So, why is generative art relevant for deep dreamers? AI art based on generative adversarial networks, GANs, is a subcategory of generative art. An aside: The Deep Dream Generator does not use GANs, it is based on convolutional […]
What does the open source software platform GitHub have to do with deep dreaming? Well, actually, GitHub is a version control system to track changes in software development projects. Many top AI programmers like to use this Linux-based online source code repository for their neural network projects and related information. Now, how is GitHub relevant for artists? First, it provides a Machine Learning for Artists platform. In turn, this platform contains an in-progress book with […]
The digital magazine Artnome is a great resource for interviews with digital artists. Additionally, it presents well-researched information about deep learning. What’s best is that you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to follow these articles. Dive in – here are some links: DeepDream Creator Unveils Very First Images After Three Years This article focuses on Alexander Mordvintsev, the inventor of DeepDream. AI Art Just Got Awesome This article is a great read about […]
