Philosophically intriguing.

This is (in a sense) optical malware, designed to disrupt the normal functioning of a NN.

If multiple stickers were presented to it in a sequence could each disrupt the NN in a specific way?

Could that sequence make the NN do "useful" work for the creators of the image sequence?

And since humans are NN's too, could the same process be applied to us?

At the very least it's a nice little meme to seed a few SF stories.
