Google thinks they should at least have a chance. On Friday night, they did.
San Francisco played host to “DeepDream,” an event that its organizers, members of Google’s research and virtual reality divisions, call the first ever art exhibition produced by neural nets — the in-vogue artificial intelligence tool that roughly mimics the human brain. The artworks were auctioned off to benefit the Gray Area Foundation for the Arts.
“It’s just random noise,” explained Mike Tyka, a Google researcher and the show’s most prolific artist. That is, the coder feeds visual data into the neural nets, unable to predict what will emerge.
Blaise Agüera y Arcas, a Google researcher, gave the evening’s keynote.

So from an earthly standpoint, we should all be evicted.
