Got a lot of time to kill in the office and you have nothing urgent to do? How about a game of Pictionary with Google’s own A.I.?
It appears that Google has came up with a new way to train its A.I., and that method is through the power of doodles. Available now on your browser of choice, Quick, Draw! is a simple game that asks you to draw a picture of a provided subject. On the other side, Google’s A.I. will attempt to guess what it is that you’re drawing.
Fun though it may be, Google is also using Quick, Draw! as a tool to help its A.I. recognize doodles and other poorly drawn images. This experiment is said to help Google’s A.I. in the long run.
Whether or not Quick, Draw! will benefit Google’s A.I. in any way remains to be seen. In the meantime, it is a great time waster for those who wants to play a game of Pictionary minus the shame of having your “drawings” judged by your friends.
