Faux Foliage, Aarati Akkapeddi

I trained a machine learning algorithm (DCGANS) on plant images. Here it is dreaming up its own leaves. Chronologically, the video moves through output images for each epoch of running the algorithm. Starting from blobby green shapes into what I think looks pretty leaf-like! Set to Mort Garson’s Plantasia.
Training images were from the Plant Village dataset on Kaggle (https://www.kaggle.com/xabdallahali/plantvillage-dataset)
