The first full week of my trip was in Ireland, mostly
in Dublin for
conference. Many of the presentations were very interesting, but
photos of them probably wouldn't be. So instead, here are a bunch of pictures
of food, people, and very green Irish grass.
Ok, so maybe one more picture of the conference is in order. This was the Gecco Evolutionary Art Competition, where Jeff Clune and I showed off EndlessForms.com. In the back we showed 3D printed versions of some of shapes that users have evolved, as well as the website using the tiny projector on the right.
Driving on the wrong side of the road was hard enough, but the road from Dublin to Galway was even more fun because (1) each lane was as narrow as a parking space in the US and (2) it still had a speed limit of 100 km/h.
We were confused about this one, but luckily an Irishman explained: one yellow line at the side of the road means “You can't park there at all,” and two yellow lines means “You can't park there at all at all.”
