What color is the dress? AI has solved a long-running dispute that nearly shattered the internet
In 2015, social media was stirred up by a picture of a dress that caused a lot of controversy among users. People couldn't figure out what color the dress was because everyone saw it differently.
Some claimed to see blue and black, while others said gold and white. However, artificial intelligence eventually settled the long-running dispute and revealed the real color of the dress.
According to a Reddit user who offered to describe the image to the GPT-4-based Bing search engine, artificial intelligence sees the dress as blue and black. He called the dress very stylish and elegant, suitable for a special occasion or party. The blue and black stripes create a contrast, and the sleeves add sophistication.
Scientists assure us that the color perception system in the body usually does not malfunction. Humans have evolved to see in daylight. However, this light can change colors, and because of this, we can see some things differently. The color of the sun's light changes from pinkish-red at dawn and blue-white at noon to red at dusk.
According to Wellesley College neuroscientist Bevil Conway, the visual system perceives color changes during daylight and tries to ignore some of the changes. So, people either ignore the blue color and then see gold or white, or vice versa, ignore the gold color and see blue and black.
That is, people who believe that the photo of the dress was taken in daylight see it as golden and white. Others ignore the light in the background and see the dress as blue. They call the golden fragments black, because they remember that if you look at a black object in the bright sun, you can see gold.
