Google's A.I. is really good at recognizing your doodles

It missed watermelon.

Did it think it was tRump’s smile?


#3

I would have guessed watermelon, maybe I’m an AI? Oh wait, I sort of already believe that. What was it supposed to be, anyway?


#4

Dude, it told you to draw a saw, and then told you it was a saw? Not a very hard test. I say defy our machine overlords! Draw Quetzalcoatl or Mount Rushmore or a plasmodium dividing.

@NickyG Sure you can identify the watermelon, but can you guarantee you can do it in a finite amount of time?

I dub thee Solitary Pictionary.


#6

what’s even more amazing, it guessed my: a potato starting sprouts, a comb, crossed spoons, spearing a dolphin as it jumps the waves, & fire.

It also missed my watermelon. Google doesn’t like watermelon is my guess.


#7

I wonder how long it will take 4chan to mess up the AI by drawing thousands of dicks for every prompt.


#8

drawing thousands of dicks for every prompt would be time consuming alright.


#9

I played five rounds and it guessed zero times, and got none right. My drawings were very close to those that it did recognize. what gives?


#10

Finally I have a decent Pictionary partner. Is it just me, or does every game end with somebody screaming, “No way is that a f&*@#ng airplane, Janet!” ?

teehee

I see what you did there!


#13

That’s not a saw, it’s a scottie.


#14

I see monkey or lamp or pig or leaf I see fire or rain or sunny days I see loney times I see animal migration


#15

I see now that this is going to be a lot like what people did to the Microsoft chat bot…

#17

It got zero out of mine. Not even one! I’m a sucky artist, but I looked at the “ceiling fan” examples other people had drawn that it was supposed to be learning from, and mine looked almost identical.


#18

It asked me to draw a kangaroo. Are you kidding me? Who doodles a kangaroo?


#19

Me for one. And photograph, sketch and paint them (as well as BBQ and stew them) but there’s loads of the fuckers round here.

ETA: I got a baseball. Who doodles that! Cricket ball, yeah. But there’s only like, 4 people that play baseball.

Similar experience here. I suspect they have different implementations of the recognition algorithms and we both got one that wasn’t as good as the others.
