Google AI Experiments lets you play with neural networks
Going the “hands-on” approach is always an effective way of explaining new concepts to unoriented people. To this end, Google has collected a number of demonstrations for machine learning that people can interact and play with.
Google calls it the “AI Experiments” showcase and it features a number of simple activities that utilize neural network systems and machine-learning techniques. They serve as concrete examples of the capabilities of existing systems that are equipped with the technology such as Google’s image search engine.
At present, there are eight items available for people to play with. Four of these are:
Giorgio Cam—identifies items that a device’s camera is seeing and hypes them up in a rhyming fashion a la freestyle rapper (best used with a mobile device);
Quick, Draw!—asks users to draw an object while the system tries to guess what it is. The activity also incorporates machine learning so the more people doodle with it, the better it gets in recognizing even the most poorly made doodles.
Infinite Drum Machine—it allows users to select and sequence a set of sounds that has been gathered by the system based on similarity.
Bird Sounds—it is what exactly the name implies: a collection of bird sounds but given visual representation.
Check out the rest of the AI-based activities on the official website. Developers can also upload anything that they’ve made. Alfred Bayle
