Rabbiteer Session #3 - Deeper Dreams of Electric Sheep
"Imagination" is a human trait, right? We're going to try and prove that wrong by building a creative AI.
Ever wondered what the limits of AI are? So, sure neural networks can classify pictures of cats and determine what movies we might like, but can a neural network be creative? Our resident machine learning engineer Jade Abbott explores whether a neural network can learn to create art by training a generative adversarial neural network to design it's own album covers.
Jade Abbott is a Senior Software Developer and Data Scientist at Retro Rabbit. Since 2013, she's built software for every field from social upliftment to banking, working on projects throughout Africa. She's worked at every end of software (with a particular preference for backend) and considers herself a polyglot. Since then, her focus has shifted to her life long passion - AI and data science. In the past 2 years, training deep learning models to perform a variety of NLP tasks for real life systems. She has recently completed her MSc in Swarm Robotics and as a published researcher has presented her research locally and abroad. When she is not wrangling data, she plays bass for South African instrumental band Follow Me Follow You.
