Google created a website where you can play and draw a doodle on it and let the websites guess your drawing. It is called the Google's "Quick Draw." The Quick Draw web game was just release lately this week. This is just one of Google's Artificial Intelligence (AI) web experiments powered by its cloud services that anyone can go and play.

In the Google Quick Draw, the site will give users a prompt to draw an image within 20 seconds with the mouse cursor in a way that a neutral network can identify it. It is a very fascinating exercise with broader implication for how Artificial-Intelligence can learn over time in key AI research areas like optical character recognition and image recognition.

Google Quick Draw is a great way to familiarize yourself with how neural networks work to identify text in photos and objects which is one of the common forms of an AI-guided software techniques we see daily on the platform's like Google photos and Facebook. As you start to draw the doodle, Quick Draw software automaton will start yelling out words and phrases which the AI thinks you are trying to illustrate. As you get closer to the finished product, the voice starts to become a good indication of how your drawing could be misinterpreted as something else.

It is fascinating because Google Quick Draw shows how difficult it is to develop this type of technology. When asked to draw a rifle, it is very critical to think about how this intelligence would reasonably differentiate between a rifle and a shotgun.

If you are curious and interested in this AI-powered Google Quick Draw, Google opened a new website where they display their artificial intelligence experiments for the public to try and play. You can choose a number of exercises and games created by the company's artists, programmers and even those without AI and machine learning background.
