Some mad scientists have been training neural networks with imagery from "The Simpsons" — and the results are, in a word, demonic.

Posted on the delightful MediaSynthesis subreddit by a user whose account is full of trippy art generated by AI, this most recent monstrosity represents the latest in a long line of multimedia artists who use machine learning to pay homage specifically to "The Simpsons."

Using the generative adversarial network machine learning model, which basically is the result of two neural networks duking it out, this user's AI created an ever-shifting abomination that morphs between Bart and Homer, never quite landing on either while inflating the eyes and limbs of the creepy creature it created.
