Google Street View Uses an Insane Neural Network To ID House Numbers

This neural network—which you can read about here, basically it’s a computing network modeled on animal nervous systems—has eleven layers of neurons, which makes it possible to ID millions of house numbers a day from the Street View raw image data. “We can, for example, transcribe all the views we have of street numbers in France in less than an hour using our Google infrastructure,” write the engineers in a new Arxiv paper about the project. What about the numbers that are too blurry for this giant brain to make sense of? No prob—those are identified by humans as part of a second generation CAPTCHA program. So you may have already contributed to the cause, without even realizing it.

"I started writing and the result was something unreadable."

Mirtha Dermisache (1940-2012) from Argentina, practiced asemic writing since the early 1970s. It is a wordless open semantic form of writing. The word asemic means having no specific semantic content. Asemic writing seeks to make the reader hover in a state between reading and looking.

"Long years have passed.
I think of goodbye.
Locked tight in the night
I think of passion;
Drawn to for blue, the night
During the page
My shattered pieces of life
watching the joy
shattered pieces of love
My shattered pieces of love
gone stale."
