At first glance, the images created by the screensaver AARON are not that impressive—images of people at parties, friends hanging out, people with household items. All the images are first drawn using simple lines and then colored in one chunk at a time.
What isn’t obvious however is the program AARON’s methods of creation. It doesn’t pull from a base of stock images; instead, it generates an original picture each time using a machine learning algorithm.
More than thirty years in the making, AARON will endlessly generate new screen savers in seconds.
