Google's Quick Draw is an amazing AI experience where you're asked to draw something and Google's neural net keeps trying to recognize what it is, proceeding to the next step as soon as it can correctly figure out what it is.
Sadly, but understandably, there's a countdown, which prevents you from leisurely exploring Google capacity to recognize what you're drawing, as it eagerly shows you in realtime what it thinks our doodles are - and that alone, is half the fun (sometimes I deliberately did incorrect drawings to see if it could figure out what it was.)
I was surprised to see it guess nearly all of my doodles - and I can't say that was thanks to my drawing skills. The only drawing that it failed to recognize was a power outlet, but that can easily be explained as I was drawing a Euro style power outlet and the system was expecting to see a USA outlet. So, can't really complain much about that.
