Mtindoproject image by Koji Kanao 'Mtindo' is a style transfer application for the desktop that offers non-technical people a unique opportunity to experience machine learning in action that explores some of the practical potentials of style transfer, beyond the game-like applications that are currently available. 'Mtindo' means style in Swahili<br /><br /><br /> I've often wondered what a self-portrait drawn by Van Gogh in the style of Picasso might look like and how I'd feel about it. Obviously, this never happened because Van Gogh died in 1890 when Picasso was just nine years old so we will never know for sure. Van Gogh never had a chance to see Picasso's art. Today, however, with texture synthesis techniques developed by Gatys et al. we have the potential to come close to simulating this possibility. We can combine an image created in one style with an image created in a different style to generate a new image with the content of the first image, but the style of the second. In this way, with style-transfer techniques, we can make a self-portrait painted by Van Gogh, Picasso-ish.3

Runwayproject image by Cristobal Valenzuela Constant increases in computer power and the proliferation and access to large databases have allowed machine learning to rapidly impact our society. While commercial applications can be found everywhere, experimentation of new prototypes and techniques remains - for the most- confined to computer scientists or engineers and has a limited reach to other fields. My thesis will try to explore who can a digital tool simplify the approachability and exploration of machine learning models in other disciplines. I will specifically focus my research on giving better access to state of the art machine intelligence techniques to artists and designers.<br /><br /> <br /><br /> Given this framework, I will like to explore questions like:<br /><br /> <br /><br /> - How can modern machine learning models be accessible for people outside of the realm of computer science?<br /><br /> <br /><br /> - Can we have machines and humans collaborate in a generative process using tools that simplify how the two work together?3
