Online coding experiment
by Adam Norwood combines a random polygon generator constantly making shapes along with a facial recognition algorithm - from Adam’s Tumblr:
What happens if you write software that generates random polygons and the software then feeds the results through facial recognition software, looping thousands of times until the generated image more and more resembles a face? Pareidoloop. Above, my results from running it for a few hours. Spooky.
(More about the project on GitHub, and more about pareidolia in case the name doesn’t ring a bell)
Works better (and faster) in Chrome, you can try it out here
