For those of you who are in need of this, you may want to check out the dataset at
The GitHub repository where the dataset is located also contains some of the developers' own implementations of Quick, Draw! model, which is very informative for those who want to reproduce this technique, don't miss it.
That said, and playing Quick, Draw! In the same way that we play "Guess the Song", we are also helping the AI grow. In Quick, Draw! When it was first released, it used only a few hundred training data and the system's recognition rate was not ideal, but after subsequent engagement and play by up to ten million users and hundreds of millions of doodles to help the AI learn, the system's recognition rate has become quite good and can recognize the same object in different forms (for example, for both the wide-brimmed hat and duck-tongued hat graphics, the system can accurately identify them as "hats").
In fact, this AI is also far from being as simple as recognizing human doodles and playing games with us. For example, through global users on Quick, Draw! On interacting with AI, we will be able to discover the differences in cognitive perspectives and preferences of users in different countries, which in turn will enable us to understand the aesthetic differences in how users depict things around the globe. By doing so AI will be able to make meaningful guidance for localizing our products and apps in different countries and regions, such as how the UI of websites and apps should be designed.
AI can even draw for us after learning people's doodling poses and habits, like Google did with the release of Quick, Draw! Shortly after, a drawing robot called AutoDraw was introduced on top of it that automatically sublimates your doodles into beautiful artistic images. Think about it, designers, you used to need to use the software to design the graphics, but now you can just do the general pattern, AI can automatically help you to transform the desired results, so save time and effort, isn't it beautiful?

Plus, by recognizing and learning human drawing and writing habits, the trained AI can help police solve crimes! For example, this year's ICFHR18 conference included a research paper called "A New COLD Feature based Handwriting Analysis for Ethnicity/Nationality Identification," in which researchers analyzed handwriting fonts from citizens of five countries after collecting them, and then used those datasets to train a machine learning model that was able to determine the nationality of the person writing by recognizing the handwriting.
The researchers then selected 100 subjects from Malaysia, Iran, China, India and Bangladesh, had them handwrite the same English, and then used a linear distribution (COLD) recognition tool to analyze the shape distribution characteristics of their written fonts, such as straightness, curvature, etc.
(AI is analyzing the writing habits of people of different nationalities)
The results showed that the subjects' handwriting showed a clear "nationality" even if it was not written in the country's script. Because this is the difference in writing habits created by words, instantly switching to writing another language retains them just as subconsciously. For example, the Chinese, who are used to straight strokes in Chinese characters, will not change their straight writing habits even if they write the Roman alphabet by hand, while the Indian and Bangladeshi, whose scripts are more "rounded", write in a more "round" style. So, if there is a transnational suspect in the case and there is a handwriting left by the suspect in the physical evidence, the AI will be able to analyze the nationality of the suspect.
As the training data becomes more and more extensive, AI will lead to more innovations like this one.
Sure, Quick, Draw! The most direct meaning of "Guess the Song" is to let the public participate in the machine learning process by means of a game, so that AI technology becomes accessible to everyone and everyone can experience the fun of AI.
In fact, Google has always had a great tradition of turning the kinds of projects it has and is working on into interesting little experiments for the average user to experience and test, such as those containing Quick, Draw! The mini-game's project AI Experiments.
