It’s a com­mon assump­tion in AI and Machine Learn­ing that every bit of con­tent can be char­ac­ter­ized by some (set of) para­me­ters. The­o­ret­i­cal­ly, this may very well be true. Con­crete­ly (and enjoy­ing a delib­er­ate­ly sim­plis­tic mind­set), it’s fun to imag­ine some odd para­me­ters and the weird con­cep­tu­al spaces they give rise to. What’s the exact mid-point between Bacon and Fran­cis Bacon? What’s 3/4ths between War and Warhol? You can con­tin­ue the game for your­self. (Even with­out using corny Ger­man-Eng­lish puns).
