You won’t believe that this artwork was created by robots

We're not sure we understand most modern art. A trip round the Tate Modern usually leaves us with a sense of being cheated: if only we'd pursued our childhood interest of plastering Play-Doh all over mum's watercolours, we might have sold them for a small fortune. 

DeepDream is the kind of modern art we can get behind.

The result of a collaboration between Gray Area Foundation for the Arts and Research at Google, all the artwork set to be exhibited at the San Fransisco-based gallery has been created using artificial neural networks.

These neural networks are a "biologically inspired form of computing which, unlike classical computer algorithms, aren’t programmed directly by human operators but instead learn from large amount of example data". These images are the result of computers looking at thousands of images from artists via the gallery, and then creating their own with a twisted form of "imagination". 

They're incredible.
