In that case, the picture becomes painterly, an effect that will be instantly familiar to anyone who has experience playing about with photoshop filters: But if the neural network is tasked with finding a more complex feature – such as animals – in an image, it ends up generating a much more disturbing hallucination: Ultimately, the software can even run on an image which is nothing more than random noise, generating features that are entirely of its own imagination.

For instance, asking the network to discover dumbbells in a picture of random noise reveals it thinks that a dumbbell has to have a muscular arm gripping it: The solution might be to feed it more images of dumbbells sitting on the ground, until it understands that the arm isn’t an intrinsic part of the dumbbell.

Start with an image full of random noise, then gradually tweak the image towards what the neural net considers a banana.” The image recognition software has already made it into consumer products.

Google’s new photo service, Google Photos, features the option to search images with text: entering “dog”, for instance, will pull out every image Google can find which has a dog in it (and occasionally images with other quadrupedal mammals, as well).
