Hey guys, I created a web visualisation for w2vec translated text. It basically generates a picture from your text using w2vec representations for words and a chosen palette. [Continue Reading..]

First, let me tell you about the newsletter button I added :D . You can subscribe to get notified when I post :). It’s down and right, please feel compelled to press it :D .
The road to wisdom?—Well, it’s plain
and simple to express:
and err again,
— Piet Hein
The above words are from a grook I like.
Sometimes I spend all day trying to count
the leaves on a single tree. To do this I
have to climb branch by branch and
write down the numbers in a little book.
So I suppose, from their point of view,
it’s reasonable that my friends say: what
foolishness! She’s got her head in the clouds
But it’s not. Of course I have to give up,
but by then I’m half crazy with the wonder
of it — the abundance of the leaves, the
quietness of the branches, the hopelessness
of my effort. And I am in that delicious
and important place, roaring with laughter,
full of earth-praise.

Autumn is great in Romania, lots of beautiful light and nice colored leafs. I enjoyed great walks in the park, but naturally I started thinking about: what would it take for a machine to detect leafs in a picture. I actually don’t know how natural this thought is :)) but I said it’s a good problem for the weekend, brushing up on my maths and maybe if I could write it in a tutorial manner it could help somebody.
This article will not be about poems, of course, but instead it will be about implementing a technique that enables you to get to where you want to be :). Following the MUI article I felt like I needed to do something about nonlinear optimisations. [Continue Reading..]

Play the puzzle!
The Goal: Given a starting “sentence” (string) reach the goal “sentence” (string) by only applying the rules below.
|Mx -> Mxx:||MIIU -> MIIUIIU|
|xI -> xIU:||MIIUI -> MIIUIU|
|xIIIy -> xy:||MUIUIIIU -> MUIUUU|
|xUUy -> xy:||MUIUUIIIU -> MUIIIIU|
x and y represent any character strings and M, U, I represent the actual letters, the arrow may be read as “becomes”.
For example the first rule can be read: Any string that ends in M becomes M and two times the reminder.
Try it, I will be waiting here :). [Continue Reading..]

See the Differential Evolution process of getting the coefficients of our quartic polynomial right! [Continue Reading..]
I started learning the basics and while doing this I said to myself I should actually do something ... [Continue Reading..]
