Someone Ran Fear and Loathing Through Google’s Neural Network

By now, the entire internet’s realized that Deep Dream, Google’s artificial neural network, is capable of some pretty trippy images. But what happens when you run a movie about acid trips through the acid trip generator? Fear and Loathing in your worst nightmares, that’s what.

Some sinister Github user recently published a set of instructions that enable anyone to pump video through Deep Dream. As proof of concept, he gave a scene from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas the hallucination treatment.

Just as you saw in the still images, the neural network generates bizarre swirls and shapes of unidentifiable creatures. But when everything is moving, the scene becomes more psychedelic than your worst LSD flashback—no drugs required!

You can do more than just watch a Hunter S. Thompson epic with this utility. The Deep Dream Video process will work with any video or audio. You might want to avoid doing actual drugs when watching neural network-generated content. Sounds dangerous.
