Miscalibrated Internet Receptor Stalks

While neural networks are usually pretty good at identifying objects already in their data set, they can be hilariously bad when exposed to unfamiliar stimuli... say the opening credits of Star Trek: The Next Generation. I’m guessing this particular neural network was initially trained to identify common household items and biological organisms, either that or it’s just oddly fixated on roundworms.

Kudos to Mental Floss for pointing this one out.
