Google Autodraw - AI recognition
« on: April 17, 2017, 12:34:36 am »
I tried a few things like a landscape, an airplane, and a house and it recognized them all.  8)

The company created autodraw.com, a site that analyzes your doodles and uses AI technology to guess what you are drawing. Is it a sunset? A lobster? A toenail? Perhaps Google is hoping to draw attention away from its ongoing discrimination suit with the Department of Labor.

can you get two drawings to talk to each other like this?

Come on guys, how many of you drew a penis straight off?

*Raises hand.*

I must have a weird penis, because it said it was either a lobster, an old timey house phone or a pen.

That last one was kind of insulting, so I drew a huge, erect boner complete with veins and hair. It thought it was a pair of pliers.

I decided it might be my approach, so instead of drawing the standard "top down phallus" I next tried the less popular (but classic) "flaccid side view" style.  It told me it was a paper clip. That was even more insulting; a penis can't even bend like that!

It must be broken. (Autodraw, not my penis.)

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic; e.g., Cheez Whiz, Hot Dogs and RF.

Man, so many jokes I could make, but perhaps you are not a good artist?  >:D

I also don’t get why there is so much hype around this atm.
Convolutional neural networks have been used for OCR tasks quite some time now and I do not see how this is any different from mapping glyphs to hand drawn lines. It is just another "font" being used.
Also, it does have nothing to do with "anyone can draw now".

And of course, the penis experiment was the first one I did as well (there is a game to train the network and I thought: why not just draw a whole set of penises to every learning set?
Did not recognize any penis-art I offered. Not impressed.
He’s like a trained ape. Without the training.

useless piece of software. doesn't recognise a resistor ( european and american symbol ) capacitor diode transistor ( npn pnp mosfets ). it can;t even recognize a thermionic valve and those are like stone-age. not a single electronic symbol.

it would be great to have such a thing to make online courses. you could hand draw nad it would 'beautify' the scribbles

It's just an OCR with a quite limited character set. Doesn't beautify anything, but rather just suggest some icons based on what you've drawn. And even that is quite unreliable.
Not impressed.

I have to admit, that I also took advantage of this new algo Google came up with to draw male genitalia. Didn't work for me neither. Or for any other of my colleagues that tried the same thing (obviously) And I highly doubt it's my lack of skills in the art department to blame.

And because  I'm 99 % sure the engineers developing the code for this thought about these kinds of situations, I've come to the conclusion that there must be  some sort of hack o secret code (Up Down, Up, Up, Left, Right ?) that activates the phallic recognition part of the code.

Also, it does have nothing to do with "anyone can draw now".

It's all about "anyone can draw penises now"

though they were smart enough not to have user suggestions for meaning

Absolutely rubbish. My first attempt it suggested a violin, then on my second a Chef's hat!

I was drawing the UK-standard school book graffiti cock 'n' balls, complete with the obligatory three (no more, no fewer) drops of ejajulate emitting forth.  (I believe this iconic graffiti is known as a "sacred" in some areas, such is its significance)

Am I the only one not getting this to work? Nevermind. This Google-created site doesn't work with Google Chrome... :palm:

Loads fine. Recognizes nothing.

 I am HORRIBLE at freehand drawing but it figures out some reasonable guesses for what I am (lamely) attempting to draw. Clearly needs more work, but that it can come up with anything at all that is at least in the ballpark is kind of neat. OK, so it thinks my drawing of a record player is a washing machine, clearly this was programmed by recent college grads who have no idea what vinyl records are.
