Let’s Grow An Algorithm.

Marking stuff in images surely is a useful task. Like, characters. Behold the marvellous “Eleutheria” logo:

How smart it will be if our machine can find the letters in that. Let’s make a simple Lua-based marking algorithm.

if color >= x and color <= y then mark pixel end

Now we play with x and y a little bit and step 1 is done. Anyone want to program this?

(The idea is to present random variations [x, y and the marked image] and just record user feedback.)

Let’s assume “color” is in 0xRRGGBB00 format. [‘cause it just looks cooler to use the highest 3 bytes!]

It’s done. Look it up in the database. RGB in lower 3 bytes (lol).

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
