pareidoloop

  1. generate random polygons
  2. feed them into a face detector
  3. mutate to increase recognition confidence

difficult stuff (the cv lib) by liuliu

idea via roger alsing's evolution of mona lisa, and greg borenstein's machine pareidolia

notes

  • try out a demo
  • currently tested only in chrome (v 21)
  • hangs firefox in some cases, on some OSes
  • "autosave images" only works in chrome (uses a@download attribute)
  • large output sizes result in corrupt images (data:// URLs too long?)
  • probably a bunch of other bugs in there
  • have patience - let it churn away for a few hours and see what you get
  • annealing simulation from russellmcc
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
