This experiment lets you draw together with a recurrent neural network model called Sketch-RNN. We taught this neural net to draw by training it on millions of doodles collected from the Quick, Draw! game. Once you start drawing an object, Sketch-RNN will come up with many possible ways to continue drawing this object based on where you left off. The model can also mimic your drawings and produce similar doodles. It’s just another example of how you can use machine learning in fun and creative ways.

Sketch-RNN model trained using TensorFlow. Browser model built using raw JavaScript and interface built with p5.js.
