Re: Report 6: Vision & Machine Learning

I have been reading David Marr's book, Vision. It surprised me that how much similarity the principle of neural networks similar to human perception. In the book, Marr discussed how information is extracted from visual signals. Starting with seeing the image, followed by a primal sketch, 2.5 D sketc...

Re: Report 7: Aesthetic Explorations in AI

I would like to share my thoughts on Dr. Ahmed Elgammal research of creative GAN, i.e. CAN. 1706.07068.pdf Overall, I think it is very inspiring and critically innovative. The research trained an GAN with universal architecture, however, two changes have been made to improve its artistic creativity....

Re: Report 5: Generative Art, Computational Aesthetics

Although Generative art is often referred to algorithmic art, or computer art, I think it dates back to the age before computer is invented. Marcel Duchamp's idea of ready-made liberates the artist from the manufacturing of artifacts. The conceptual artists in Sol Levitt changed people's traditional...

Re: Report 9: Final Project

My final project is to explore the concept of see CNN intermediate results as image representation. I would like to refer to representational framework in the book Vision by David Marr. I hope to frame a general methods for CNN to create image representations, which can then be used for image genera...

Re: Report 3: Material-based, Software-based Explorations

What's changed after the photography's transition from being analog to being digital? The analog photography is a chemical process, whereas the digital photography is signal processing. Within signal processing, it can be divided again into two subcategories, the analog signal such as magnetic tape ...

Re: Report 2: The Pixel-based Image & its Processing

Several responses to pixel When images are presented as pixels, photographs can be viewed as purely numeric data information. Many artworks were referencing to the Information Theory, to remove redundancies in a photograph, to compress the data and present the information with minimal number of pixe...
