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).
