What a Deep Neural Network thinks about your #selfie

quote [ Convolutional Neural Networks are great: they recognize things, places and people in your personal photos, signs, people and lights in self-driving cars, crops, forests and traffic in aerial imagery, various anomalies in medical images and all kinds of other useful things. But once in a while these powerful visual recognition models can also be warped for distraction, fun and amusement. ]

I wondered if that was the network itself or a byproduct of the original images chosen as 'best' to teach the network. It might be us who are biased. ;)

Nonsense. Everybody knows that machines (and all other non-human intelligences) are unnaturally attracted to white, blonde women, and want to kidnap them for nefarious breeding purposes.
