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

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 optimizations.

This is an introductory article about a social artificial intelligence artistmachine42 I am developing in my spare time and it will not contain a lot of math (unfortunately). More in depth articles will follow.
This is it’s most successfull post so far:

Children (light blue) and parents(dark blue) run in the same generation simulation. The red car is the current best individual, the white ones are the old best individual (evaluated in the same generation).

We have the procedural track, we have the ghysics car model, let’s make a simple top down racing AI! Above you can see me play with the basic AI (I am the red one that always ends up hitting the wall :) )

Today’s article is about implementing a simple, easy configurable car model with the Box2D physics library. See above video of me playing with the new model.

Hey guys! This article is about implementing procedural generated, closed race tracks for my 2d top down racing game AI framework.
