Google’s image recognising robots turned on themselves, making weird dreams that could show why humans are creative

Computers have dreams, according to Google — and they’re often highly trippy, strange ones of dog-fishes and bananas. Google’s highly-powered, clever computers are normally used for image recognition — a technology that requires computers to think like humans, learning what things look like. But the company set them loose identifying small, subtle things, skewing the images to show a knight made of dogs or clouds that resemble a “pig snail”. The search giant is just one of many companies who are working on artificial neural networks, which use highly-developed mathematical methods to simulate the way that human’s brains think. But by turning those computers upside down, they throw out the strange more -
