Google’s New A.I. Experiments Lets You Play While Understanding Neural Networks
Almost everything in the internet today is driven by neural networks, i.e. computer systems modeled after the human brain and the nervous system. In other words, artificial intelligence or A.I., which makes the interaction between the user and their device more enjoyable and thrilling.
One of the prominent corporations using neural networks on almost all its online products is Google. And just recently, Google has launched a site showcasing some of its A.I. projects that are both fun to play with and very educational.
The site, called A.I. Experiments, features a bunch of simple artificially intelligent experiments that can also be considered as mini-games that involve playing and exploring A.I. technologies in many entertaining ways.
Googles aim for A.I. Experiments is to let people play around with examples of machine learning. In this way, people will get involved as Google engineers try to take machine learning to another level. In the site there are eight experiments already available for users to play. The users can also download A.I. codes to discover how machine learning works.
Here are some of the A.I. Experiments exhibited on the website:
This A.I. experiment becomes an instant favorite to many people. It is a game of Pictionary where the users are asked to draw something and the neural network will try to figure out the image you put in.
Named after the Italian musician, DJ Giorgio Moroder, Giorgio Cam works as an image recognition tool. This experiment is best used with your mobile phone. With the use of your phone’s camera, it displays song lyrics based on what item the device sees.
Infinite Drum Machine
This A.I. experiment is composed of thousands of everyday sounds. Sounds are collected based on their similarity and lets you choose a sequence you want. Shuffling around the experiment could really bring up awesome beats.
The A.I. experiment does what it is named for. It lets you take a photo of something and translates it into different languages, whether by displaying text on the device’s screen or by hearing it as the device speaks. This experiment is also best used with your mobile phone or any handy device with a built-in camera.
You can check out the rest and learn more about these machine learning experiments by going to the A.I. Experiments website. They are also accepting submissions of A.I. experiments to showcase on their site.
WHY SHOULD YOU TRY IT OUT?
This offering of Google isn’t close to perfection yet, that is why they are called experiments. But if you find yourself feeling uninspired and uncreative in your work, this is the perfect way to procrastinate. Entertaining yourself with this interactive technology can open inspiration, especially for designers, in conceptualizing for a new design.
It is also an instant mood booster. It’s like being a child again. Seeing the A.I. experiment’s learning process, how exciting it is, is one of the reasons Google launched it – to show people the possibilities of a technology like this could do to us in the future when it is fully developed.
Plus, watching the videos of the developers, encoders, and the other people behind each experiment not only educates you, but they could inspire you as they strive to break the boundaries of the impossible that could influence everyone.
From simple experiments on Pictionary and apps that throw raps based on what image it sees. Just imagine what Google could come up as they strive for improvement in making technology the best companion.
