AI Just Learned To Write Its ABCs

Danqing Wang Show Brenden Lake’s machine learning program a randomly chosen letter from a library of 30-plus world alphabets, one the machine has never seen before, and the program can produce new “handwritten” versions that are indistinguishable from human-generated letters. Even more fascinating: When asked to invent and draw new alphabetic letters in the same style as a handful of examples (for example, the Hebrew letters זַ ,א, or ה), the program created new letters that a panel of 117 judges could not distinguish from what humans made when given the same tasks.
