Playform // Creating Artificial Art Like a Boss


Dear readers,

another day, another #GAN experiment. This time, I took a series of #artbreeder portraits and ran them through a #popart model. Here is the animated gif of the first 100 iterations of my favorite portrait:


While I'm quite used to creating generative images with artbreeder, this was my first experiment using a service called Playform.

Playform allows artists and creatives to experiment with the latest in artificial intelligence and machine learning technology in an intuitive and code-free online environment.
Here is a short explainer video to see, how it works:
If it doesn't work, here is the link!

No Excuses

If you ever wanted to dive into machine learning and artificial art, now is the time. Tools and services like Artbreeder, Playform and Runway provide an easy access to this fascinating technology even without knowing the technical background.

Thanks for watching!

OK i have to try this; I wonder if you can pair it with the "Deep Dream Generator" and create complete chaos. Fantastic work you are making with this; thank you for sharing:)

Thanks for your feedback! l‘m happy to be able to inspire other artists to check out my findings and I‘m certainly looking forward to seeing your „complete chaos“ results ;-)

This is so cool, I have always wanted to try this but my coding skills are... not good? I'll have to add these to my to-do list! I have included this post in my weekly curation Ocean of Art!

To be honest, although I have some technical skills, I'm definitley more interested in the artistic process. Therefore I'm really thankful, that more and more platforms provide access to AI and ML. Looking forward to your first results. Thanks for including me in your curation post!

Thanks a lot, I can already see it as a part of a trippy music-video ;-)
