Artificial Intelligence and Art

                  I've been tinkering with two excellent free software programs called SimBrain and jTRACE, which have helped me understand (the bare basics!) of the origins for computational psychology and neuroscience leading up to recent developments in deep learning and convolutional neural network always I am wondering, how can I work with these programs as an artist. This morning I had a quick play with Google's DeepDream software, which is a computer vision program designed to detect and classify faces and other forms of patterns.  I came up with one image that I thought was fun and provocative -- I thought I'd share it.

What an incredible time in history this is to be an artist, I think.
