On Labradoodles and Fried Chicken

(21 March – Updated with more images…) I recently saw a post on twitter from @teenybiscuit, subsequently picked up by NPR here . You’ve probably seen it, dogs, muffins and a whole bunch of other things that look similar. I decided to check out how well Wolfram’s (nee Mathematica) ImageIdentify[] function would do with it. Super quickly, here it is. Basically a 50% or so hit rate (for loose definition of ‘hit’) and not a terrible false-alarm rate (10-15%). It’s really good at guac and parrots. And it sometimes thinks Donald Trump is a virus.

I’ve put an image of the Mathematica output below. There’s a link to the WolframCloud™® website with the actual notebook below the image.

    Click on the link to take yourself to the notebook’s web page and see the whole thing if you’d like. The cloud servers are being particularly slow/annoying, so you may have to wait a bit for it to load.

    Gießen and the Virgin

    I’m changing things

    FrinkYes, this is that classic ‘under construction’ post. I’m moving things around. Cleaning things up. Posting PDFs. Singing a little song.
