What is Deep Dream

DeepDream is a computer vision program created by Google engineer Alexander Mordvintsev which uses a convolutional neural network to find and enhance patterns in images via algorithmic pareidolia, thus creating a dream-like hallucinogenic appearance in the deliberately over-processed images.

Frequiently asked questions

What are the image license

The base images are all from artworks that are in the public domain. You can use the generated images under the creative commons license, or generate your own.

Can I make images like these myself

Yes, there are many tools availible, like or

The artist likely intended some meaning to the artwork, is that not lost when combined with the deep style / deep dream process?
