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 you experience AI and shadow puppetry in a playful way. To bring what used to be an offline experience online, we 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.

For more information on the Shadow Art AI experiment and how it works, kindly refer to this Google blog post: Try your hand at the art of shadow puppetry, with help from AI.
