Created an algorithm that creates an interesting tube.
3 rule program to create the cross section:
- from each point maintain the distance to next
- from each point maintain the distance to the rest
- avoid sharp edges
the progress of the shape over time represent one step across the tube… LINKS!

Neural network generating images that match a “kind” of image (tea pots, running shoes, faces…).
The software creates new images that look like something recognizable, and it’s not a “mix” of previous images, but something new. It does this by looking at the probability distribution of many images of the target kind, and then tries to imitiate that distribution.
company doing open ai research:
Gene’s is writing a book (constant progress) - machine learning for artists
Related podcast about “average” research:
Experimenting with creating a web-browser / note taking tool. Unifies bookmarks, tabs, history. Allows you to create notes and create links. It’s like a mind mapping tool.
As We May Think - Vannevar Bush
Experiment in visualisation all possible averages.
e.g. average visualisation of euro-dollar exchange rate over time
animation of changes of inflation and unemployment rate over time.
