Deep Emoji

Deep Emoji

We use UNICODE digital images to convey complex emotions in digital communication. In other words, we use emoji. How does an image recognition algorithm see emoji? This is the question behind Deep Emoji.

Deep Emoji is a project created thanks to DeepDreamGenerator, which is based on Google Deep Dream, a modified image recognition algorithm that generates and modifies objects in photos. Using the words of Will Knight "...the images also hinted at how different deep learning is from human perception, in that it might make something out of an artifact that we would know to ignore."
