Google has already shown us the weird possibilities when images are processed through a neural network

But a new experiment takes this dynamic to a new level by transforming any photo into an image that mimics the painting style of one of the old masters

The details of the project are revealed in a research paper titled “A Neural Algorithm of Artistic Style.”

“Here we introduce an artificial system based on a Deep Neural Network that creates artistic images of high perceptual quality,” reads the paper, penned by a group of researchers from the University of Tubingen in Germany. Read more…
