AI dreams, sort of a bit, well not... but fascinating anyway. Like a Salvador Dali plugin for photoshop.. a bit.

Cutting meat and dairy consumption will help the world to meet its 2050 carbon emission targets, says Giles Crosse. The problem can be tackled, but only if the world’s governments stop ignoring the issue and subsidising cheap agricultural products

3D printing brings to life a boroque painting in this incredible zoetrope. Watch the video! http://ow.ly/Na0FU
Check out this 3D printed zoetrope, which artist Mat Collishaw made with Sebastian Burton in order to bring a Baroque painting by Peter Paul Rubens to life!

AI infinite fractal like dream thingy. 
 
These acid trippy videos made by an AI get tiresome real quickly but for now I am fascinated. https://vimeo.com/132462576  

The "artist" offers a great explanation of the recursive nature of these images.

"This can be thought of as asking the network "Based on what you've seen / what you know, what do you think this is?", and is analogous to you recognising objects in clouds or ink / rorschach tests etc.
The effect is further exaggerated by encouraging the algorithm to generate an image of what it 'thinks' it is seeing, and feeding that image back into the input. Then it's asked to reevaluate, creating a positive feedback loop, reinforcing the biased misinterpretation.
This is like asking you to draw what you think you see in the clouds, and then asking you to look at your drawing and draw what you think you are seeing in your drawing etc,"

"so open-minded that your brain falls out"
Jim and Louise Laidler used to believe in alternative medicine. Their story is a microcosm of the debate over treatments such as homeopathy, reiki, and other alternative techniques.

I loved it too. It belongs to Carl Sagan i think. Anyhow I expect i should get a fair amount of use out of it!
