Quick Draw
« on: December 15, 2016, 03:11:36 AM »
How many of you have been keeping up with the progress of this Neural Network as it "learns" how and what we draw?

For those who have, it seems to be getting much better and faster at recognizing our 20 second squiggles as it tries to guess what we're drawing while we're drawing it!

I've noticed it usually guesses my sketches in a few seconds and rarely takes the 20 second limit that it is assigned.

This indicated a few possibilities. It IS learning from tens of thousands of people drawing various subjects that it provides. I am becoming better as a promising artist than I ever thought possible! NOPE...ain't going to happen!
Three, there are so many other really good sketch artists that it really makes my squiggles insignificant. Possibly all of the above.

Actually, it IS learning and getting better at recognizing wireframe and 3D shapes and objects. Not everyone is going to draw a microwave, water slide, motorcycle, roller coaster, etc., in the same manner. Some might draw a 3D microwave showing the sides, controls and window, while others show a 2D face front rectangle with a circle and window. You only have 20 seconds and that ticks by fairly quickly, especially when you think you just about have it.

You do get to see how many of the 6 images you got correct and if you click on one of the ones you didn't get (shown with a small X), you can scroll down to see how other people drew the same object. Some better and some not so much.

There is no limit to how many times you can play so have fun and let that creative artist soar...or not so much...;)
In the world of AI, it's the thought that counts!
