Some Sadist Ran a Donald Trump Speech Through Google's Neural Network

Artificially intelligent computers understand Donald Trump not unlike artificially intelligent humans. His speeches read as extended phrases of clarity interrupted by moments of utter horror. Just watch.

The above video comes from photographer Eric Cheng who explained:

The source video is a CNN highlights reel from Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy announcement in July 2015. I used audio volume (averaged over each frame) to dictate how deep to dream. For fun, I used a picture of Cthulu as a guide image.

Cthulu meets Trump as understood by an A.I. that can dream. Welcome to the state of American politics in 2016. [Eric Cheng via Boing Boing]
