Unscramble the Blue Letters

This is a little bit like giving the same riditecnpso to three different sketch artists from all around the world. If they all oreducp a very similar-looking face, then we can rtsat to become edfiotcnn that they're not imposing their own cultural biases on the drawings. One way we can try to impose different image freesuat is by using pieces of existing images. So we take a large collection of images, and we break them down into their little image patches. We then can treat each image patch a little bit like pieces of a puzzle. And we use commonly seen puzzle eespic to piece together an image that also fits our telescope measurements.

Original Text

This is a little bit like giving the same description to three different sketch artists from all around the world. If they all produce a very similar-looking face, then we can start to become confident that they're not imposing their own cultural biases on the drawings. One way we can try to impose different image features is by using pieces of existing images. So we take a large collection of images, and we break them down into their little image patches. We then can treat each image patch a little bit like pieces of a puzzle. And we use commonly seen puzzle pieces to piece together an image that also fits our telescope measurements.
