For a project called 'INCEPTIONISM', Google boffins fed pictures into the company's 'image recognition neural network' (ouch, my brain) to see how it would recognise, and emphasise, the edges, colours and features of the pictures. Confused? Me too. Still, let's attempt to power through.
The pictures were then fed through the software again, and again, until they became unrecognisable swirls of iridescent trippiness. The process has resulted in some significant examples of digital art - in the purest sense of the term. With this in mind, we have to wonder if AI will render the digital artist obsolete?
God I hope so.
