This seems precariously close to bullshit. Are the pictures just pretty, or do they actually convey useful information?


Yeah, there’s almost no way the relatively random bits in a neural net form such pretty pictures without heavy human intervention.

I was going to say, Could someone explain what I’m looking at in words of one syllable?

It looks like an illustration of someone’s acid trip, so I can totally buy it as a representation of what’s going on in a neural net, but I need some simple explanation of how it’s representing that and what it means.

They’re a profit-chasing tech startup, not a research group, and their website is absolutely awash in buzzword bullshit. Not a serious thing.

Pretty, though. Although so are the organic ones…
