AI helper #01

We decided to experiment with getting a new studio ‘helper’ – in the form of GANs (generative adversarial networks), two contesting with each other neural networks. We trained the algorithms with a data set based on our illustrations, and hoped to get plenty of new artworks created by the AI.
Our neural networks became more individualistic than we have predicted and produced some unexpected results. Nevertheless, we like it!

We are interested in machine learning as a tool in our creative practice and its meaning for individual creators.

We used DCGAN which we tweaked a bit: https://github.com/soumith/dcgan.torch
