using the same models and code I also made a book of latent space interpolations. this isn't 50k words long but I like it and wanted to share. PDF version http://static.decontextualize.com/interpolations.pdf image gallery: http://static.decontextualize.com/interpolations-gallery/

this has been on my "open projects and ideas" board for like a year and i am very happy right now to be able to take it down and rip it in half and throw it away
@aparrish HIGH FIVE
@aparrish that look so cool
@aparrish Do you have any way of doing a latent space interpolation between "laurel" and "yanny"?
@varx hahaha not with this model, no, unfortunately
@aparrish Ah, I was afraid of that.
Having read up on GANs a tiny bit... if you wanted to find the latent space coordinates that best matched a target, could you use a different discriminator that just knows that target, and have the generator work its way towards that?
(Not asking you to, just curious about the limitations.)
@varx yep it's definitely possible and worth exploring, just not built into the gan code i hacked to make this thing work!
