Google brings out AI-powered shadow puppetry for Lunar New Year

Google is celebrating the annual Lunar New Year with a special doodle and a Shadow Art AI experiment, giving people a glimpse of the ancient storytelling art of shadow puppetry.

Shadow Art is a Web browser-based game that lets users experience AI and shadow puppetry in a playful way.

To bring what used to be an offline experience online, Google used TensorFlow.js, a TensorFlow library which makes it easy to build and train a machine learning model directly in the browser.

Shadow art AI aims to make the benefits of AI accessible to everyone and provide people with an opportunity to experience AI in a playful way.
