At AIweirdness.com Janelle Shane posts the results of neural network experiments gone delightfully wrong. But machine learning mistakes can also be very embarrassing, or even dangerous. Using silly datasets as examples, Janelle talks about some ways that algorithms fail.
Janelle Shane’s neural network blog, AIweirdness.com, features computer programs that try to invent human things like recipes and paint colors and Halloween costumes. AIweirdness.com has been covered in the Guardian, the Atlantic, NBC News, and Slate and was even featured as a recent quiz question on Wait Wait, Don’t Tell Me. Janelle also works as a research scientist in Colorado, where she makes computer-controlled holograms for studying the brain. She has only made a neural network recipe once and discovered that horseradish brownies are about as terrible as you might imagine.
