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).
