From one of the grandmasters of digital art comes an explosion of the most interesting images the world's ever seen.
Turn any photo into compelling, lasting visual art. Using next generation neural networks, Pikazo works the way your brain does to rip apart and assemble image details into something new and extraordinary.
Created by the image scientist behind landmark visuals seen in the Myst games, The Matrix films, 300, and Second Life, Pikazo lets anyone create and share beautiful artwork.
Pikazo is at the very bleeding edge of neural network software. It really, truly, actually works by simulating the way your brain sees images.
This is incredibly computationally intensive, and even on a cloud of the fastest computers, it takes a few minutes to process each image.
Sometimes Pikazo paints masterpieces; amazing images that take the air out of the room.
Sometimes it doesn't.
Sometimes, it doesn't work at all.
To be honest, we're not yet sure why it works. That's why we need your help – to discover what types of images are successful and what aren't.
We would like to sincerely thank the following genius digital neurosurgeons who made Pikazo possible: Leon Gatys, Alexander Ecker, and Matthias Bethge at Bethge Lab at University of Tübingen; Justin Johnson and Kai Sheng Tai at Stanford University; Karen Simonyan and Andrew Zisserman at the Visual Geometry Group at University of Oxford; Alexander Mordvintsev, Chris Olah, and Mike Tyka at Google.
