Scary AI: MIT creates image-altering algorithm to haunt you this Halloween
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology have created a ‘Nightmare Machine’ that uses state-of-the-art deep learning algorithms designed to transform images of “haunted” faces and places into terrifying pictures.
The website features various “horror” images of iconic landscapes, buildings, places and faces generated by artificial intelligence.
“We use state-of-the-art deep learning algorithms to learn how haunted houses, or toxic cities look like. Then, we apply the learnt style to famous landmarks and present you: AI-powered horror all over the world!”
MIT is asking the internet to help improve the algorithm by voting if images are “scary” or “not scary.”
