For Season 3 of Westworld we wanted to add a new member to the title design team: A Neural Network AI.
Each Season the title sequence of Westworld features subtle reflections of the park.
In Season 3 the hosts leave the park behind, so we wondered - what would it look like for a machine to look back on the world of Westworld from Season 1 and 2?
To answer this, AI Researchers trained a Neural Network by feeding it Season 1 and 2 of the show. The software processed this imagery into a multi-dimensional space of visual connections.
The results are surreal “machine dreams” of Westworld.
Characters are recognizable. Distinct environments emerge - like the desert... and the lab. Sometimes the results are very abstract, and sometimes they are grotesque - as faces converge in strange ways. The AI’s processing is purely visual, yet connections are made and patterns emerge.
The team chose a favourite moment to include in the title sequence.
The result is one small collaboration between man and machine.
