Google's Newest Computer Program Makes Trippy Art

Uh oh. Looks like Google's newest program found Uncle Jerry's stash of LSD and Grateful Dead tapes.
Well, not quite: Google programmed one of its artificial neural networks, usually used for image recognition to create these trippy images.
Google's Research Blog says the neural networks are programed to recognize certain features in images, which is what makes reverse image searching possible. The software can then be programmed to highlight what it interprets to be the main feature of an image and "amplify" it.
Doing this makes a feedback loop where the network recognizes, to use Google's example, a bird in a picture of clouds, making the clouds more and more like a bird with each successive pass.
