Deep learning takes on GIFs, fashion, doodles and more at ACM Multimedia

This week is the Association for Computing Machinery’s Multimedia conference in Amsterdam, and the theme this year beyond a doubt is machine learning. More than 250 papers and posters will be presented and browsed at this huge gathering of researchers, and although many in some way or another leverage neural networks and deep learning, the purposes to which they put these increasingly useful tools are by turns fascinating, practical and whimsical.

I looked through all of them and found lots worth highlighting. Click on for the latest (and weirdest) in machine learning and artificial intelligence.
