Google open-sources its software for making trippy images with deep learning Google today announced that it has open-sourced its code for generating wild and crazy images using a type of artificial intelligence called deep learning. The DeepDream project is now available on GitHub. The project relies on the open-source Caffe deep learning framework. Deep learning involves training artificial neural networks on a large pile of data — for example, pictures of geese — and then throwing them a new piece of data, like a picture of an ostrich, to receive an educated guess about it. Today’s software release comes a couple of weeks after Google Research showed off how it could visualize what neural networks are seeing when they perform deep learning.

THEE BLOG 07Oct 14 Latest Project: Miami MLS Team It’s been seven months since David Beckham announced his intention to bring an MLS team to Miami, and even though I’ve never trusted Miami politicians, I was excited because I love the game and would love to get my kids involved in it as I was since a very early age. So, I ignored the “Don’t trust Gimenez” banners – which proved to be accurate – and watched the press conference, joined my local official supporters group and shared the news with friends. Fast forward a few months and we are still in limbo. We have no stadium location (mostly because Beckham is funding this project privately, which means no commissions for local politicians and contractors), we don’t have a team name or even an identity.

Resources - The Graphic Mac You may recall that I’ve written about Advise in the past, but they’ve changed their name and domain to adJelly. If you missed my previous write-up about them, adJelly offers a fantastic collection of specs for all the most popular social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, LinkedIn and more. You simply select the social media site you’re creating ads, images or graphics for in the left column and you’re presented with all the specs you’ll need. The site is particularly useful for designers because sites like Facebook offer numerous options for sizes. For instance, Facebook offers sizes for single image ads, carousel ads, video ads, video slideshow ads, cover and profile images, post images, event images and more. Plus, specs change frequently, and some sites don’t make it easy to find the specs (I’m looking at you, Facebook!).

New Icon for Instagram done In-house Launched in 2010, Instagram needs little introduction, especially as it’s become the preferred social media platform for most users thanks to its simple interface, highly visual timeline, and despite its growing amount of “Sponsored” posts. Not as huge as its parent company, Facebook, Instagram has 200 million daily active people — which is not total users, but the amount of people that come back to the app every single day, spending an average of 21 minutes on it. (Data provided by Instagram.)
