Machine Learning – It provides computers with the ability to learn without having to be explicitly programmed. Machine Learning focuses on the development of of computer programs that can change when new data/information is given.

How it works

Users are given approximately twenty seconds to draw a randomly selected object

While drawing a computer will start naming off things that the user might be drawing.

They will have six items to draw and extra time does NOT carry over into the next object.

Note: The computer does not base what you drew as a whole. It processes how you drew it by which ways (left, right, up, down) and which lines you started/finished with.

After the doodles are completed drawing the six items you will come to a screen that shows whether or not the computer guessed your drawing.Screenshot 2017-01-12 at 10.14.09 AM.png
