Machine Learning with Fun

Google Research hosts a number of very interesting so-called A.I. experiments. There you can play with machine learning algorithms in a very amusing way. A recent example is QUICK, DRAW *). This is an online guessing game that challenges humans to hand sketch (called doodles) a given object. The game uses a  neural network to learn from the input data

which is part of the A.I. Experiments platform:

and here the explanatory video:

Have fun and enjoy!

Here you see more than 100.000 hedgehog drawings made by humans on the internet:

*) not to be confused with QuickDraw [1], which is a sketch-based drawing tool facilitating to draw precise geometry diagrams,  and can automatically recognize sketched diagrams containing components such as line segments and circles, infer geometric constraints relating recognized components, and use this information to “beautify” the sketched diagram. This “Beautification” is based on an algorithm that iteratively computes various sub-components of the components using an extensible set of deductive rules.
