Ganbreeder is a collaborative art tool for discovering images. Images are 'bred' by having children, mixing with other images and being shared via their URL. This is an experiment in using breeding + sharing as methods of exploring high complexity spaces. GAN's are simply the engine enabling this. Ganbreeder is very similar to, and named after, Picbreeder. It is also inspired by an earlier project of mine Facebook Graffiti which demonstrated the creative capacity of crowds. Ganbreeder uses these BigGAN models and the source code is available.

New project: Ganbreeder A tool for discovering images via breeding and sharing in-browser. I feel the combination of latent spaces with collaborative interactive evolution has a lot of potential as a design tool. Essentially picbreeder powered
