Google's Quick! Draw is a lot like Draw Something

Google wants you to doodle at work for its newest AI experiment


If you're looking for something to do at work and you don't mind helping out Google with its latest artificial intelligence (AI) experiment, then read along.

It involves one thing we think you'll like: doodling.

Quick Draw!, one of Google's latest features in its AI experiments, gives you browser-based platform to draw doodles. The goal? To get the app to guess what you're drawing, and in turn become "smarter."

Google's Quick! Draw is a lot like Draw Something

Google Quick, Draw! is a lot like Draw Something.

How it works

To play, go to quickdraw.withgoogle.com, and click "Let's Draw!"

Google's AI toy will give you the name of an object to draw and 20 seconds.

That's all the time to get.

While you draw, the neural network throws out guesses in real time, stopping the timer once it guesses correctly.

After the game

You get to kill time and Google gets to sharpen its tools, but there's also a cool feature after a game of six sketches.

Google gives you insights into each drawing, including the ones the AI neural network was not able to identify. It tells you what its AI was expecting you to draw.

When it's unable to guess you're drawing, Google's AI lets you know what types of sketches it associates with a certain object.

More fun to be had

This isn't the only AI experiment you can play with (at work) when you're bored. 

Google also has Giorgio Cam, which recognizes objects you place in front of your webcam or smartphone camera and turns them into song lyrics.

There's also Thing Translator, which translates things you point at with your camera into other languages.
