Lancashire Google Dreams
This Hall is usually a lot less cluttered than this Dali-esque scene
This venue is usually the setting for Strictly ballroom dancers
This scene from East Lancashire should ring a bell
This famous landmark is usually framed against a more sober looking sky
They definitely wouldn't allow wheeled vehicles on the Green
We wonder if any of the figures in the foreground are selling parched peas?
The figures in this scene are mystery, perhaps Sherlock Holmes can solve the riddle
The Google Dreams algorithm is causing quite a stir on the internet, social media is full of eerie, psychadelic images generated by people across the world.
Software engineers at Google have been trying to find out how effectively computers learn. This involves image recognition AI analysing images up to 30 times, with each layer identifying key features in order to determine what is in the picture.
In a similar fashion to the way we see shapes in cloud formations, the neural networks tries to recognise shapes in images and reinterprates them into what it thinks it should by referencing the vast library of images that are on the internet.
Some of the outcomes are not quite what they should be, which results in some fantastical and other-worldly depictions of everyday scenes.
We thought we would have a go at giving some of our famous landmarks the Google Dream treatment. Can you guess all of them?
If you can’t figure out what they are - here are the originals
