wait this technique is even better if you start the random walks from the same word mastodon.social/media/h2TmXNdk

a little poem in which the first word of each line is from a semantic space random walk, and the second is from a phonetic space random walk mastodon.social/media/I3CIfWcX

I asked for a random walk through a word embedding space starting with a random word and I got a transcript from a tailgate party? mastodon.social/media/gHZWX_0z

little experiment with animating this (reeeeally need to start doing all of this in webgl so I can get decent framerates) mastodon.social/media/u8A3eQR2

(has some random rotation on the points of the letterforms themselves and on where each segment is drawn beneath the previous)

stringing together middle segments of letterforms based on similarity at the top and bottom of the segments mastodon.social/media/gvRrkTRd

continuing this experiment: trying to match top halves to bottom halves based on how similar the points are through their horizontal center line (also fixed the rotation here to increments of π/8 radians) mastodon.social/media/JTU2hQbV

today: speculative letterforms made from stitching together top/bottom halves of randomly rotated letters (I have more ambitious ideas for this, just trying to do some foundation work today) mastodon.social/media/IqrbvTrT

it's hard to believe that this paper, among the first to suggest using GPUs to speed up machine learning, is less than a decade old machinelearning.org/archive/ic

Good to know: Raspberry Pi is not vulnerable to Meltdown/Spectre because they use processors that don't do speculation.

Also a nice, clear explanation of how the vulnerabilities work.

again building off the same code, a matrix showing all possible halfway-interpolations between points in the letters (i.e., top row is (A+A)/2, (A+B)/2, (A+C)/2, etc.) (matrix is not symmetric because letters have different numbers of points)

for real though is there a way to do this without... like... serializing the array as a string? I can't find an array-like data type in javascript where values belonging to it are considered SameValueZero-wise equal if they contain the same elements in the same order?
