You know there's something strange going on when you ask your neural net for "a horse on a bicycle" and you get this

@janellecshane Hypothesis: the lower layers of the net (closer to the semantics) did set up the foundations of a horse on a bicycle, and the upper layers were like "lol that's a weird looking finch buddy" and just overrode it

@cathal After some experimentation, I think it tried even less hard than that! There are 1000 things it knows how to do, and it will haphazardly map any input onto one of those 1000 things.
