Mario Klingemann is brilliant as always.
I followed him since the early flash days1 and always admired him. Got to meet him once. Great artist with creative access to code and inspiration. Nice talk from Cyril too.

Machine learning is a field of computer science that uses statistical techniques to give computer systems the ability to "learn" (e.g., progressively improve performance on a specific task) with data, without being explicitly programmed.The name machine learning was coined in 1959 by Arthur Samuel.

DeepDream is a computer vision program created by Google engineer Alexander Mordvintsev which uses a convolutional neural network to find and enhance patterns in images via algorithmic pareidolia, thus creating a dream-like hallucinogenic appearance in the deliberately over-processed images.Google's program popularized the term (deep) "dreaming" to refer to the generation of images that produce desired activations in a trained deep network, and the term now refers to a collection of related approaches.
