Breed the Ganimals, (2019)
As sea levels rise and habitats are systematically destroyed, species are undergoing extinction at an unprecedented rate. But artificial life is flourishing. Breed the Ganimals is a collaborative social experiment to interact with new artificial species, and breed your own. Generated by the imagination of a deep neural network, and fed by crowd ratings, these ganimals offer us new possibilities for exploration and observation of intelligent evolution. Explore the diversity of creatures generated by a deep neural network, and help produce new generations of ganimals by providing feedback. This data helps the algorithm adaptively learn to produce cute, creepy, and realistic ganimals.
