As the creative world continues to develop, technology will continue to accelerate into the future.

This morning I watched a TED Talk on ‘How Computers are learning to be creative’.

The talk is delivered by principal scientist at Google, Blaise Aguera y Arcas. His key role at Google is team leader developing an understanding and working examples on machine intelligence for mobile devices.

The team work with ‘deep neural nets for machine perception and distributed learning’.

In this amazing video he highlights how this amazing technology can be used to effectively reverse engineer and generate images.

The results are truly awesome.

If you haven’t had a chance to spend some time on the TED website its a really cool place to become inspired.

TED started their journey in 1984 as a design and technology conference. Since then it has really developed into something extremely unique.

TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design.

Today it covers everything from Science, Business, Global Issues, Design, Tech and so much more.

There mission is to ‘Spread Ideas’.  If you haven’t seen any TED Talks then you really are missing out.

They are extremely selective about the speakers, and always tend to pick very creative, innovative and influential speakers.

The quality of content these guys deliver is so good.

You can easily find yourself loosing a couple of hours watching these fascinating talks.
