It doesn't matter what I say, but I really think you're pushing yourself a tad too far by taking on more extreme challenges after another. At the end of the day, it's not the difficulty of the challenge that keeps the majority of us coming back; it's your personality, intelligence, charm, and neat project ideas that we love! Try doing a fun challenge next, instead of a hair pulling one! For the sake of your stress ❤

You didn't have to paint the pieces. All you had to do was white out the pictures! After all, you *still* want to visually verify the fit. Spurious twins *do* exist in puzzles. (I know, because I've been doing large jigsaw puzzles since I was 2.) So you don't actually know for sure that you got the *right* fit, just *some* fit.

This is how computers and programming work, really. A lot of stuff had and has to be simplified to get a working prototype. You can then work to get closer to your original expectations, once you have a working model. It is way easier to expand a working model than to create a complex one from scratch.

I loved how he immediately upscaled from like 16 to 4002 instead of doing something like a 64 puzzle piece.
At the end there were apparently 2 missing pieces. BUT - when the software was trying to match edges, at 9:49, it said there were 4002 pieces. I think the view of the jigsaw at 17:32 shows that it's 80 pieces wide, hence 80*50=4000, rather than 69*58=4002 or 87*46=4002. So maybe Shane accidentally scanned a couple of them twice?

Clearly you didn't actually count. You just waited for me to do it ;-) It's 87x46. Also, if he had 4 malformed pieces he only had to scan 3998, so that's something to think about. And then you wonder how he accounted for those in his algorithm?

I am a Software Engineer and i am going to show this video to some friends and family if they ever ask me again why the computer/software is not doing what they want. To tell a program to do exactly how it should be is hard to imagine. For the human mind its so obvious and yet a program needs some help to understand what you are trying to do. Awesome project!

This is an incredible video and is so inspiring to me. Like the whole thing is a collection of impossible levels of frustration, failure, changing expectations, and perseverance. The fact that this project, which some would call a failure, is still such an objective success as a lesson in computer science and the realities of practice instead of theory makes it such a beautiful video. It's just like you said, the journey was the destination. Thank you for always creating such great content.

I'll second this: I've definitely seen extreme effort to make a python algorithm fast by making it really complex, like this, which turns out to be trivialized when run in c++ or rust and the dumb option is fast enough. Not saying this case specifically would be: n² can definitely soak up a lot of compute, but I would *expect* a brute force search to be pretty feasible here.

@dgthe3 - that was my off the cuff response to someone that said 3 was good enough which I took sarcastically. You just reiterated what I wrote but tossed more detail. It had nothing to do with the fact the pi is always "rounded" whether it be 1 digit or a billion digits.
dgthe3 24 dias atrás
@Ace Ace Pi being rounded 'for the most part'? It's always rounded and will always be rounded. We don't know every last digit of pi, and never will. So we can't do calculations with the 'full' value of it. But it rarely matters much. You could engineer something using 100 digits of pi, but the physical part that results can only be made & inspected so precisely. Plus, given the interaction between all the various parts with each other & the environment, there is probably going to be something that can compensate for not using more than a handful of digits. Whether it's a safety factor in the static design, or the control system for something dynamic, there is usually something that allows for a bit of error.

It may already be made, but have you considered using that to reassemble vases and other archaeological structures?
parodysam Mês atrás
That’s 3D, he had to make his own pieces because he wanted to pretend the puzzle pieces were 2D to make the problem simpler. Another issue, those pieces would be worn down so even if you tried matching the contours of two pieces of an old vase that had previously fit together, they’d no longer be a match because their shapes changed since they first broke apart.

@Fonk Badonk Thanks for sharing! Having just a basic understanding of the complexity of your work, and others like you, it's a marvel to me that automation has taken over so much production. Obviously it's extremely difficult work now, but think about the early to mid days of automation when computing power was so much less. But I guess the more power we get the more complex things we take on, so it's probably likely that the complexity is greater today. I dunno.

Automation engineer with a background in IT here. It's REALLY frustrating at times conveying to customers which problems are the hard ones, because from a human standpoint the match between problem and hardness is often entirely different from a computer's point of view, which also don't have such a nicely "standardized" set of sensory input as humans. (Seemingly) simple issues like a scale giving slightly off measurements that don't quite match with what the level or flow meters report, but your PLC only getting the weight, while the people in the plant can clearly see the other values, can and WILL lead to deviations from the product's recipe. Nearly impossible to explain if you're not being lucky enough to have a techy of the customer involved. (Which is negligent and shouldn't happen, but hellooo real world.) And that's an extremely simple example. Like, bottom of the barrel.

I'm amazed at the approach you came up with to solve your all-white puzzle. Do you know that the German Frauenhofen Institute developed a similar computer program (ePuzzler) in 2003-2013 for the torn files of the State Security of the German Democratic Republic. But they had the problem that the torn edges partially overlapped. Unfortunately I couldn't find a website in English about it.

That's amazing!!!!! Did you know that US government officials had to manually reassemble and tape back together all the papers that Donald Trump ripped up during his presidency? Apparently he has a habit of tearing papers up when he's done with them, and unfortunately every single scrap of paper the president interacts with gets filed (like even a sticky note he doodles on absent-mindedly). Even after being informed multiple times that his habit was causing gross inefficiency for that department (not to mention turning your job into soul crushing, completely unsatisfying puzzle building), he still continued to do it. Sounds like they could have used that software (or Shane's!).

Like when you're using too much Arduino memory regex'ing coordinates and it doesn't give you an error, it just doesn't work right.

P B Mês atrás
you know what i absolutely love about this build, aside from the feat of engineering? the fact that this machine is not truly "useful", it has one purpose which is to complete puzzles but the entire purpose of a puzzle is that you do it yourself for fun, it's not a job or a task that needs to be performed in mass. how often will you have to solve a 5000 piece all white puzzle that you need to make a machine for it? who is in the market for this machine? so in that sense the journey really was the destination, the satisfaction of seeing the functioning machine comes from the hours and hours of manual labour and problem solving that went into making it. in the end the puzzle-solving machine is a puzzle itself- it's very complicated, it took a long time to finish, once it's finished it no longer has a purpose other than to exist, and the maker gains enjoyment from it's completion :)
We've got T r o u b l e
The amount of time you had to spend scanning the pieces must've been eye opening for you. Thinking about the sheer duration of it alone, my mind wanders off to the repetition of work people have to do in third world countries like China where they'll spent their entire day glued to a chair doing the same thing over and over and over and over again.

My senior design project in computer science was solving puzzles with computer vision like this. Only instead of all the machinery, we assembled it all with software and made the completed product visible on a GUI. We were able to get up to 2000 piece puzzles with minimal errors. We didn't go for all white puzzles, but that is an interesting challenge. It's cool seeing the similarities and differences in how our software decomposed and solved the puzzle!

@pyropulse not quite, mythbusters could not afford to take months and all the budget to make a single episode. even mythbuster's larger episodes that had some hefty budget were super rushed compared to this video. it just doesn't make sense financially to spend so much time on a single video unless you are independent and sponsored. mythbusters didn't have any sponsors (as far as i know) and was beholden to the network and advertisers that bought slots on the show. if they took a few months to make a single insane episode, that would be months of no advertising revenue

Bravo! I've been programming for decades and your approach to matching puzzle pieces was impressive. I have a slightly similar programming story. There are old text-based predecessors to MMORPGs called MUDs. Big online multiplayer text based games, loosely based on Dungeons & Dragons game mechanics. To oversimplify, the game worlds were a bunch of areas, each area having rooms connected NSEWUD. Areas were cities, forests, etc. Keep in mind these are text based games, so they don't really fit together spatially in rational ways like modern graphical MMORPGs. I wanted to dynamically build and store an ASCII art "map" of each area, every time the MUD server booted up, so it needed to be somewhat efficient. To do this, I picked one room to start from in an area, and recursively walked from there to all the rooms in the whole area, giving each room an x,y and z coordinate based on the path taken. Recursion has pitfalls, but it was easy. It made spaghetti look organized. At the center of a city area could be a city park, with many rooms in the park, but each road around the park's perimeter could consist of just one or two rooms. Coordinates for rooms overlapped and were pretty much useless. The solution I came up with was funny. I did recursive walks from all rooms as starting points, to all rooms (SIZE*SIZE; moar recursion!). This would make hundreds of sets of coordinates for every single room. Then I did the clever bit: (To avoid doing slow floating point math) I multiplied each room coordinate by the total number of rooms in the area squared (or cubed? it was a while ago) and then I just averaged each room's x's, y's and z's together. It worked 99% of the time. Some tricky areas with literal one way streets and such would be skewed, but that was no big deal. I was just happy it didn't slow down the server boot up too much.

I wonder if having the full table vibrate wouldn't work to just nudge all the pieces in their spot. Either vibrating after each placement or at the end for a grand finale. You could also maybe have the underside edges of the puzzle pieces maybe a bit more rounded so that the piece wants to naturally fit with other pieces. I watched a lot of "manufacturing videos" recently and the concept of vibrating stuff just right to position things is very common for automated assembly tasks.
Fulmenify Mês atrás
This is awesome! Also, I definitely learned something: Before spending hours of preparing my whole data set (or puzzle pieces) for a yet unproven algorithm (like matching sides that could fit together), make a quick test with reduced data set to see whether it works in principle :D
Mark Johnson
Mark Johnson Mês atrás
@Glenn edwards Sure, but your underlying assumption is that all errors must be solved at once. Starting small and then scaling stratifies the errors. So you get the basic model down, fix the big problems first, and then deal with problems that arise only at scale. Still, he did such a great job showing his whole process. The sheer level of persistence here is admirable.

@Siberius WolfDefinitely. With his knowledge and experience, there’s no way he thought a regular cut puzzle would work perfectly. But it serves as an interesting progression plot + it’s good for educating the viewers.
Fulmenify Mês atrás
@Glenn edwards It's true what you described in the end there. You have cases like that with virtual elements/data as well. But things like the algorithm finding no match at all, like in this video, because of fuzzy edges, you'd have detected with a really small subset of pieces (chosen wisely) as well. Also that the "smoothing fix" changed the shape too much, you'd have discovered a lot earlier. So I still think it's a valid and reasonable way to go about things, to make quick tests with a subset of data/pieces, before going big.
Glenn edwards
Glenn edwards Mês atrás
This approach works really well when dealing with virtual elements as long as the subset of test data represents all possible combinations you would come across. However it does not transfer well when dealing with real world physical elements as demonstrated here i.e. pieces shifting the duplication of coordinates leading to stacking etc. For example the latter problem is no doubt because the process lead to duplicate answers for the same piece so it placed it in the correct coordinates even though it had already solved it. This error would well not show up in a much smaller data set.

The fact that you are so raw when you talk about you struggles is incredibly motivating. It's really hard to imagine the amount of work and worries and trial and error that go into projects like these when you see the finiahed product. So for that : a big massive thank you.

> all to entertain strangers on the internet Not really. It is a very fun project to do on it's own, sharing does not have to be the goal. As an SWE I do weird pet projects too, just not interested in sharing those

I am curious if instead of grinding puzzle pieces you could use one of spline noise reduction algorithms to do it programatically.
NoTrueScotsman Mês atrás
I don't know about the algorithm you mentioned but it is trivial to do in opencv and even if he wanted to code it himself it would have been still much easier than making and photographing a new puzzle.

Do you make a G-code interpreter for your CNC projects?

Maybe vibrating the table could slot some of those pieces into place? Or adding a "probe" to push the piece down after dropping it might also help

As a programmer, I'm intrigued with the algorithmic possibilities that could be applied regarding your earlier data sets - do you have your various scan sets that others could play with to see if they can find clever ways to massage them into finding the connections?:

@Philippe Deslongchamps He didn't discuss any amount of fuzzing and the impact of that approach in his algorithms.
benoit hautefeuille
It would be very interesting to see more people working with that first data set. it appears clearly than original scanning is not optimal, but the real interesting challenge is to find a way to deal with that, it would give a real life solution. Some iterations probably have to be done to adjust preprocessing and matching algorithm to find a solution that would be unique.
Timothy Johnson
Timothy Johnson Mês atrás
I'm surprised he didn't just try simulating his puzzle solver with the digital version of the puzzle he generated, before he cut all the pieces out. That way all the pieces would be perfect, and he would have found the bugs before trying the solve with the physical pieces.
Philippe Deslongchamps
Yeeeeesssssss let us try! We professional software engineers :) we gona smoothen those edges then allow for error % while comparing the edges!

@IAmThe UsualGuy The devil is in the details with this kind of problem I think. In other words, the only way you'd know would be to try it. In fact iterate on it: think and build and repeat.

Fitting the puzzle pieces together is close to some work I've done recently on a cancer detection system via VOCs in the breath. We get curve scan data, a curve for each specific VOC sensor. Then we attempt to map this to known cancer data. The amount of confounding data and difficulty in separating signal from noise makes it appear like a 4000 part puzzle. Of course I wrote the clinical software all in python. The good news is that the system is quite successful at detection.

What I like about you is you aren't afraid to admit your mistakes. You actually embrace them and let people know what went wrong or why things didn't work. Some people out there pretend they are so smart and get everything perfect on the first try everytime. Thanks for being real

@Euler13 Programming isn't easy, at all...especially with all the languages you can code in. He probably did this project to show the insane complications, and patience you must have that come with coding.
Fallout Mês atrás
@Euler13 I feel like he needs to do a little easier challenges. Ones where he's still developing new skills, or sharpening existing ones. He had so much fun doing projects like the automatic pool table, and basketball hoop. I think he's burning his energy believing he needs to outperform all of his previous projects to keep us entertained, and engaged. It's actually kind of sad how hard he pushes himself for a 20-30 minute video. He should do more projects that feel rewarding, rather than a chore
Fallout Mês atrás
@Euler13 I typically don't care to find subliminals hiding in a YTer's videos, unless it's relevant information. Makes sense now, though
Euler13 Mês atrás
@Fallout You need to watch the video more closely. He puts random websites and messages on the screen behind him when he's talking into the camera. The message about going insane was a series of single words that kept appearing throughout the video. It's his wild sense of humour and ingenuity.
Fallout Mês atrás
@Euler13 What? He's not going insane. Besides, he has a wife and child that keeps him company. He's just tired, and you can tell he's stressed/pressed

I should think that it might have been interesting to have left the picture on the jigsaw. It gives you the opportunity to quickly and easily check if the computer was 100% accurate, using the amazing facility - eyesight.

Never tired of watching your video! Could use some assistance if possible. I am a farmer in NE Indiana and I do a lot of field drainage tile. I have been looking for years for someone to build a small vehicle or robot with a camera and an under ground locator. This would need to be remote controlled. The purpose would be to drive unit up field tiles to map where they run or to find a blockage. I have contacted Purdue university and also multiple other universities along with hours of Google searches and phone calls with the same answer. It can't be done. Any help?

There is an old joke at Google where some search results kept being wrong because for whatever reason, there was this one garden gnome listing on ebay that kept coming up. Eventually, the person who was trying to fix the bug got frustrated and bought the gnome which made the problem go away. The phrase "buying the gnome" since then has meant something like "change reality to hide the bug".

@MDuh Gaming His problem is the locality-sensitive hash is too precise. The trick is to start with low-frequency components (which match a huge number) and continue adding high frequency coefficients until the number of matches is tractable. It seems like he was using some kind of SVM or forest model to generate the hash, so this would be fairly easy to tune. Like all good algorithms, the key is divide and conquer. Joining pieces into NxN blocks is a great example of this but I think that could be applied to many parts of the algo.
