Reverse OCR is a bot which chooses a word and draws randomly until the OCRad.js library recognizes it as that word. This bot is charming to me because the relationship between the “drawer” and the software “judge.” They are both humorously incompetent. On one hand the bot can’t seem to get the letters right at all and the judge, perhaps out of pity, just accepts the chicken scratch. This bot was created by Darius Kazemi AKA Tiny Subversions (the artist most known for buying random stuff on amazon). Kazemi works in Portland at Feel Train, a creative technology cooperative he founded. Basically this guy just makes a bunch of bots for the lolz.
