AI Discovers Fire

Digital Art created using DCGAN trained on images of fire

Fire is arguably the first discovery of humanity. In 2021, just before the AI revolution took hold, a different kind of fire burned in our minds — Could AI, this nascent intelligence, ever truly become human?

DCGAN, one of the earliest AI models to generate images, produces outputs that seem a little unhinged and 'fluid'. This, coupled with the concept of latent space - a hidden dimension where images morphed and danced - gave a feeling of effervescence of images

Keeping fire as my muse, I force-fed DCGAN a diet of flames. Could AI crack the code of humanity's earliest discovery?
