The neural networks showcased in this gallery exhibit rather painterly aesthetics, even though the networks never had any contact with paintings or drawings. The images created by a particular network usually have a fairly consistent style — the network's individual “artistic personality”. Yet, there is surprising diversity among the various neural networks...

Each plate shown below was created by one of the neural networks belonging to the sigma family. The particular neuromorphic artist network is singled out by the identifier shown at the top of the plate — the neural network's “name”.

Each network was asked to depict the same set of objects or sceneries, so one can study the individual interpretations of a particular topic. (See Overview for more information...)
