AI Has A Lot To Learn

Older ComputerBob.com posts may contain outdated technical information.

Google’s researchers have developed an artificial intelligence system.

That neural network already knows a lot of things.

But it needs to learn more.

And you can help teach it — by doodling.

It didn’t recognize my doodle of a paperclip, despite the fact that it looked exactly like a paperclip — which is really ironic, since a paperclip is about the only thing that I can draw realistically.

Later, Google’s AI showed me what some other people’s doodles of paperclips had looked like.

No wonder it hadn’t recognize mine! Nearly everyone else’s doodle was a sort of crooked, lopsided spiral that didn’t look anything like a paperclip.

If you’d like to help teach Google’s AI what a paperclip — and other things — look like, you can do it here.
