DEEPDREAM

http://deep­dream­gen­er­a­tor.com

Neu­ral net­works see all sorts of weird pat­terns in im­ages, like the way we see faces in clouds. DeepDream uses al­go­rith­mic parei­do­lia to bring these to life—a vivid and psy­che­delic one. As an im­age is pro­cessed mul­ti­ple times, strange things ap­pear, as pre­vi­ously un­seen pat­terns are drawn out. Bizarre.

MITSUKU http://pan­dorabots.com/ mitsuku

This chat­bot has won the Loeb­ner Prize Tur­ing Test three times. She can chat on a num­ber of plat­forms, in­clud­ing Mes­sen­ger, Twitch, and Tele­gram, or just plain web chat. Fun for a while, al­though you don’t have to stray far to con­fuse her.

MI­CROSOFT CAPTIONBOT

www.captionbot.ai

Up­load an im­age and this bot writes a cap­tion for you. This one has been around for a while, so it should have had a good bit of train­ing. It’s still gen­er­ally only av­er­age, though—you won’t have to try too hard to fool it. When launched, its in­ac­cu­racy, and com­i­cal guess­work lead to a slew of pranks.

IM­AGE-TO-IM­AGE

http://affinelayer.com/pixsrv/

This takes your crude at­tempts at draw­ing cats, build­ings, shoes, or hand­bags, and through the magic of a trained ma­chine learn­ing en­gine, gen­er­ates ar­ti­fi­cial pho­to­graphic im­ages of the re­sults, which range from creepy to pretty good, es­pe­cially the build­ings. The bet­ter your draw­ing, the bet­ter the re­sult.
