All of these images were computer generated!

For the last few weeks, Googlers have been obsessed with an internal visualization tool that Alexander Mordvintsev in our Zurich office created to help us visually understand some of the things happening inside our deep neural networks for computer vision.  The tool essentially starts with an image, runs the model forwards and backwards, and then makes adjustments to the starting image in weird and magnificent ways.  

In the same way that when you are staring at clouds, and you can convince yourself that some part of the cloud looks like a head, maybe with some ears, and then your mind starts to reinforce that opinion, by seeing even more parts that fit that story ("wow, now I even see arms and a leg!"), the optimization process works in a similar manner, reinforcing what it thinks it is seeing.  Since the model is very deep, we can tap into it at various levels and get all kinds of remarkable effects.

Alexander, +Christopher Olah, and Mike Tyka wrote up a very nice blog post describing how this works:

There's also a bigger album of more of these pictures linked from the blog post:

I just picked a few of my favorites here.

+Rachel Priebee  I heard it's supposed to be on for at least six months. They don't seem to list an official end date so it looks set to be there a while. There is a lot to take in. I'm definitely going again at a quieter time!

Finally, one connector for everything!
USB-C is one new feature Apple's MacBook has that you need to know about—whether your next computer is a Mac or not.

Beautifully striking and tonally representational, Christoph Waltz's mind turns to stars in this poster for The Zero Theorem.

Excellent free-range Eggs Benedict, nice velvety coffee, friendly service and a big window view of the ocean! Although this place can get quite crowded sometimes, it's a great destination for breakfast and one of the best cafes in Wellington.
