The last thing we want if we start using smarter and smarter software to run our lives is for them to go off the deep end and find conspiracy theories everywhere! Less flippantly a characteristic of schizophrenia is perceiving patterns in random data (it's called apophenia), don't want that in our software.

It's also interesting to look at the various comments for that google blog entry. Many people mentioned that some of the pictures look like something a human would see under the influence of LSD. If one knew what kind of neural networks get enabled or disabled in the brain to reduce the brain's ability to accurately process the images from the eyes during an LSD trip that knowledge could be used to improve the algorithms that train the artificial neural nets and one could also come up with new designs for neural nets. I wonder whether they ever performed any experiments like this with rats or mice.
