An AI invented a bunch of new paint colors that are hilariously wrong

Research scientist and neural network goofball Janelle Shane took the wondering a step further. Shane decided to train a neural network to generate new paint colors, complete with appropriate names. The results are possibly the greatest work of artificial intelligence I've seen to date. Writes Shane on her Tumblr, "For this experiment, I gave the neural network a list of about 7,700 Sherwin-Williams paint colors along with their RGB values. (RGB = red, green, and blue color values.) Shane told Ars that she chose a neural network algorithm called char-rnn, which predicts the next character in a sequence. The longer it processed the dataset, the closer the algorithm got to making legit color names, though they were still mostly surreal: "Soreer Gray" is a kind of greenish color, and "Sane Green" is a purplish blue.

"We believe that this project will help save at least eight to ten thousand dollars, off the energy costs on this building alone, so it's a very worthy effort and it's going to save the college money in the long run," said Robinson. The work began Tuesday to power the energy, not by coal, but by the sun. "It is a little ironic," said Robinson, "But you know, coal and solar and all the different energy sources work hand-in-hand.

Probably a while ago, right? These clothing labels will convince you to look again - they aren’t your usual “do not mix with colors” or “do not boil me in water over 60 degrees, thanks very much” kind of thing.
