Teaching a computer to draw with letters
My small Sunday project: computer learning how to draw an image with nothing but 150 letters :) at first, I thought of giving it a task of just drawing with lines or circles to simply test the code, but then I decided to challenge it a bit and it gave some curious results.
For example, the middle finger was almost always the one the algorithm would do well as it quickly 'learned' that best-suited letters to represent it are 'I'. Sometimes it would do something very creative, in my opinion, like in generation 262 example the 'V' letter between little finder and index is a very interesting solution! In the end, it is also fascinating to observe that almost all the letters narrowed down to a certain size and thickness, whereas in the beginning, as you can see, the range of the possible values is quite big.
Overall, machine learning is an amazingly interesting topic! :)
