Link Pack1 is a set of recommendations that you, as I did, might find interesting. This week, it features links on music, design, code, and more, and an animation of myself training Teachable Machine on the browser.

Machine Intelligence

  • Keep your eyes wide open to the "friendly machine learning for the web" that is being developed at ml5js by Daniel Shiffman and awesome people from NYU ITP. Here is How the name came to be.
  • Google Colaboratory, "a Google research project created to help disseminate machine learning education and research. It’s a Jupyter notebook environment that requires no setup to use and runs entirely in the cloud."
  • X Degrees of Separation by Mario Klingemann (@quasimondo).

I hope you have a great weekend!

Link Pack1 is a set of recommendations that you, as I did, might enjoy or find interesting. This week, it features links on design, code, and simplicity, and a video by Automatica with music played by robots and Nigel Stanford2.

For designers who code: Airbnb's Lottie lets you export After Effects animations to native iOS and Android animations. If you're into CSS, you might like Scooter (an SCSS framework built to provide base styles, CSS components, and rapid static prototyping for Dropbox). And if you're into Swift, check out this open-source UI Libraries.

On simplicity, you can read a publication by Ben Taylor (Dropbox) on practicing mindfulness at work and my latest piece on Getting Simple: Freeze Your Goals. And listen to The Slow Home Podcast (by Brooke and Ben McAlary).

Have a great weekend!

  • Three days ago, Netflix open-sourced vectorflow — a minimalist neural network library optimized for sparse data and single machine environments. (See on Github.)
  • Other resources to learn about Machine Learning (recommended by @jongold) are FloydHub and Deep Learning with Python by Francois Chollet.
  • Mac keyboard shortcuts

  2. In their own words: "We are giant fans of the original video by Aha and director Steve Barron, and especially the legendary animators Michael Patterson and Candace Reckinger who came up with the beautiful technique and style we were trying to emulate. This work was made very quickly and just for fun, there is a lot of room for improvement. We inspired by the intersection of emerging mass technology like ARKit and visual effects that traditionally have been difficult to recreate. Everything is live in camera and works as shown." ↩︎

Abstract from Imitation As A Tool: by Nathan Borror:

People always ask me, “how do I become a better designer” or “how can I be more creative?” Here’s my answer: identify the work you love, study it, imitate it, remix it, and most importantly make mistakes along the way.
