Pix2pix Tensorflow Artificial Image Creation

Christopher Hesse created a way for internet users to experiment with artificial intelligence-created images. The idea is that you draw an outline, and the machine uses the info that it already knows to create your image. There are four generators, each with their own database of information: facades, cats, shoes, and handbags. This is an example from the facades generator.

Pretty neat, huh? What could possibly go wrong? Well, what happened was that, internet users being who they are, everyone wanted to use the cat generator, which uses a database of about 2,000 cat images. This is what happens when you draw a fairly good cat.

And this is what happens when you draw a not-so-good outline of a cat. I drew this.

But not everyone drew a regular everyday cat. That's when it gets horrifying.

Some folks drew things other than cats.

-via Metafilter, where you'll find links to more examples. Try it yourself!
