Odonata sent me these amazing SkyKnit patterns!! This is Fishcock, which somehow ended up as a huge hyperbolic surface.
The Kealing Middle School students shared their ice cream dataset with me - so I made some new neural net-generated flavors.
Ms. Johnson's middle school coding classes kicked my butt at neural network ice cream naming. Please enjoy their flavors:
Repotted my tomatoes! They'll be clawing at the windows soon.

For #MayTheFourth please enjoy these Star Wars character names generated by a neural network. http://aiweirdness.com/post/163491778652/darth-net-star-wars-characters-invented-by-neural
Crowdsourced a dataset of D&D character names for training a neural network.
I think it captured the spirit of these.
This is "Head’s Spangot Candy", a SkyKnit pattern transformed into a hat by OldTrout.
Trying to figure out what kind of organic structure this reminds me of. A walnut shell?
Package arrived from Australia today with SkyKnit patterns from MeganAnn who is a wonderful wonderful person. Look at them! These are especially weird because she followed the algorithm's instructions as closely as possible. Note all the tentacles!
I trained a neural net to describe NFL draft picks, but it had a little trouble with the grammar.
I am absolutely floored. HMSChicago sent me this scarf, made of 20 SkyKnit-generated patterns that she debugged & knit herself. Loook at it!
It's a work of art.
SkyKnit! Read about a collaboration between the LSG knitters of Ravelry & a neural network algorithm
Someone made an "Ale or A.I.?" quiz using neural network craft beer names.
I'll be on a free panel tomorrow (April 11) at the Conference on World Affairs in Boulder at UMC 235 on CU campus. Topic is "Science: How Far is Too Far?"
There will be a livestream! At 2pm US Mountain time (4pm Eastern), the panel should be playing at the U235 link here:

Tried some content-aware rescaling on my cat - photoshop filter that tries to preserve the most important pixels as a photo is rescaled
