More silent pages.

I wanted to share today an article that helped me understand the difference between AI and neural networks. It's a short read. The big takeaway is that AI and neural networks are not one and the same. The mythic idea of AI that we see in fiction is an AI with general intelligence-- the furthest from where we are now. AI today tends to be highly specialized for specific functions, like winning chess games. So, there's a gap to cross-- how do we go from AI highly specialized in one function, to general intelligence? This is where neural networks come in. I recommend you give the article a quick read-- it's a great, concise explanation. 

We did a lot of reading that informed how we approached Pixels of You in order to get the feel right, but the story itself is very light sci-fi, so don't expect pages of technological explanations. We were more interested in how things play out at a social and cultural level-- basically, how do people live in this world. 

More next time!


Pixels of You was written by Ananth Hirsh & Yuko Ota, and drawn by J.R. Doyle.
