Recent work in neural style transfer has been successful in producing stunning images with a very similar look to real paintings, while resembling photographs in content. …


An animated free-form texture featuring rotational symmetry generated by examples.deepartist.org

DeepArtist.org is an image processing platform using convolutional neural networks to perform state-of-the-art image processing techniques. This software is targeted at hobbyists and digital artists, and as such this project is focused on the practical tools provided to produce pretty pictures. …


Hello! Today we’ll be learning about the MindsEye Artist’s Kit, a simple way for nearly anyone to produce their own deep learning artwork! Our goal here is to make this easy to use and simple to set up, using remote execution on Amazon EC2 to negate special hardware requirements. …

Now that I’ve cleaned up the testing and documentation of MindsEye, I have been able to re-focus on why I started writing it: Optimization Algorithm Research. In the course of playing with this code I have tried countless ideas, most of which taught me though failure…

In the last article, we covered a common testing framework for individual components, but we didn’t cover how these networks are actually trained. More specifically, how should we design a test suite to cover something so broad as optimization? A big problem here is that the…

A critical part of any good software is test code. It is an understatement that tests improve quality; they improve the scalability of the entire software development process. Tests let you write more code, faster code, better code. One of the leading testing methodologies is unit…
