How does a neural network connect perceptions to concepts? In other words, how can you make something that accepts an array of pixels as an input and correctly outputs "dog" or "cat?" This video from Art of the Problem does a good job of explaining how neural networks are able to do this, and why it's important to have neural networks with many layers.

My friend who would like to remain anonymous made a zine called "What Will Happen to Me." She used the GPT-2 neural network to generate 100 answers to the prompt "What will Happen to Me?" and selected her favorites for the zine. I scanned some of the pages to share here. From the zine description:… READ THE REST
Browse through photos of never-before-seen art at This Artwork Does Not Exist. The site was created by Philip Wang, and uses a generative adversarial network (GAN) to create images of artwork that don't actually exist. Generative Adversarial Networks, which were invented by Ian Goodfellow and his colleagues in 2014, use machine learning to produce content.… READ THE REST
Every coffee lover knows that nothing beats a freshly brewed pot of joe. It's the drink millions of Americans have settled on as their pick-me-up of choice for their morning, mid-day, and even at night. No matter when you like to enjoy your brew, you should never have to compromise on coffee quality. You won't… READ THE REST

If you missed out on summer, including a few extra rounds of golf,… READ THE REST
Got a stroke of genius and nowhere to make your mark? Sounds like you could use some help in the art department. You could go back to art school and get in-person lessons, but people are full of germs these days, and it's still a safe bet to just stay home. Try the Watercolor Painting… READ THE REST
