Something sketchy going on with machine learning

David Ha, one of this year's Brain Residents (g.co/brainresidency), wrote up a very nice Google Research blog post about the work that he and +Douglas Eck have been doing on generative models for sketch-style drawing.

David and Doug have a new Arxiv paper that was just posted about the details of the work at titled "A Neural Representation of Sketch Drawings" for the details, but the blog post gives a really nice overview of what these sorts of generative models can do. The blog post goes through many variations of pretty cool things you can do with this model:

o "Draw me a cat", and it can generate different many different cats
o "Draw me a cat that looks roughly like toothbrush", and it can draw a cat that looks like a toothbrush
o Smoothly transition between cat pictures that are just faces versus ones that show the whole body by manipulating a latent variable that is learned by the model
o Do "vector arithmetic in drawing space": "cat head + (pig with body - pig just head)" gives "cat with body"
o Complete drawings given a category and just a line or two: "Finish this fire truck"

Just a taste of the kinds of creative tools that machine learning will be able to provide in the coming years.

Introducing the #MaterialDesign Color Tool – A new resource for creating color schemes, testing accessibility, and previewing your UI in color: material.io/color

Whether you're dabbling in Millennial Pink or refining an existing color scheme, the new Material Design Color Tool makes it easy to create, share, and apply color palettes to a sample UI across a range of Material Design components. You can also use the tool to test the accessibility of your product’s text and color combinations using WCAG legibility standards. Learn more: material.io/color

In addition to the Color Tool, today's release includes updated Material Design guidance on text fields, a new section on text field boxes, and added resources for guidance on right-to-left icons. See what's new: goo.gl/QyHs2w
