The neural network could see the moon the lion, the rabbit and the crab
The programmer showed convolutional network pictures of the moon and found that the computer sees in the outlines of the lunar seas and mountains. It turned out that sometimes the human perception and neural networks are not very different — for example, when it comes to lunar hare.
The human brain tends to see familiar phenomena where there are none. Sometimes this tendency is expressed in the auditory hallucinations that occur when we expect to hear familiar sounds, and sometimes hallucinations visual: processing the signals coming through the optic nerve, the brain processes them so that formed a familiar image. Therefore, we sometimes see figrure animals in the clouds and human faces in everyday objects.
The lunar surface is covered with a large shapeless dark spots — the lunar seas. Educated them relief from the Earth is often perceived as a strange image for the moon, it is the earthly things: the famous “Man on the moon” and the Moon Hare (character Eastern myths), tokushige something in a mortar, and the concrete illusion depends on the representative of a culture looks at the Orb of night.
