#AI  
Commentator Tania Lombrozo says her sense is that thinking machines elicit an existential response — perhaps because we're threatened by the idea that maybe human thinking isn't so special.

This is what happens when you feed the a clip 'Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas' to Google's neural network code #DeepDream , which then tries to visualize what it think is there.

Probably the closest approximation of a psychedelic trip without actually dropping acid... not that I would know.

We now have the power to easily alter DNA. It could eliminate disease. It could get really out of hand.

So yeah #deepdream is amazing. This is the same image being slightly zoomed in each time it's passed into the AI. This is the first 50 iterations I'm going to keep letting it run and do a couple hundred soon.

human?
in a word, i'm a bit 'amazed' at what they did. first off, i use linux. they fixed it properly within the linux environment (the problem was a very unique one as i was using a prototype computer with new hardware). so they not only fixed the problem, they did so in such a way that was more elegant and superior to what i suggested, it was the proper solution. and at the right price. if i were to use a second word it would be 'perfect'. they are very legit.
