Style transfer using deep neural networks does the following: you select a photo, a painting, and the style of the painting is transferred into the photo. Unfortunately, this usually doesn’t work very well, producing unintented and unexpected results.

Example of style transfer

And here are the results!

Depending on your expectations, you may agree that most of the results also aren’t great. It will be interesting to explore this topic further.
