Google has just released a series of A.I. Experiments that are really fun to play around with. One of them is Quick, Draw! which utilizes machine learning and a neural network to play Pictionary. You make a doodle and it guesses what you’re drawing as you draw, and the more drawings it sees the smarter it gets. It’s actually kinda nuts when it says what you’re drawing before you’ve finished it. Sometimes it wouldn’t know what I was drawing until I added a very specific element like the second vertical line (candle) on the top of my cake.
To be able to witness machine learning like this is pretty amazing, and also a tiny bit frightening. Watch the video below which explains exactly how it works!
