So, I’ve always fancied myself as a bit of a doodler, thought I wasn’t too bad at all. I thought today, I’d put that to the test. Oh how I regret that.
What a bloody mistake, I can’t draw for toffee, there is literally nothing that I am good at clearly. Anyway, I was pitted against Google. Could Google guess my Doodle?
Theres this cool website, Quick, Draw! in which you have to draw certain things on screen within 20 seconds while google guesses what you’re drawing. I did it a few times, and sometimes google was stumped, but other times, she cracked me.
As you can see, my drawings weren’t exactly Picasso standard, BUT I did have one round in which google guessed ALL my drawings correctly.
It’s not just for fun though, it stores all your doodles, and you can then explore the data. Look how many people drew elephants the same as me, but then take a look how many did a front view. It tells us more about the minds of people and the global society than you’d imagine. And that, for me, is the most interesting part of this site.
