@schriftgestalt @behdad Perhaps we should start investigating this algorithm: provided a n-dimensional function F(V) with F(0) = 0, return an approximate "OpenType 1.8 interpolation form" of it.

@be5invis where do we have arbitrary functions as input?

Yesterday I went to Beijing.
I heard that Founder is making a project about automatically creating glyphs from Ideographic Description Sequence to create a HUGE font with 1 million characters, covering all variant characters in Ancient Chinese.

And an AI program that learns your handwriting style, and creates a 20,000-character font from only a few characters you draw manually.

There was also the "John Morisawa" talk at ATypI.
So yeah, AI fonts are coming.

Type design SHOULD be scientific.
Let machine do the hard work, and human do the creative part.

I was speaking with people from Founders, but they didn't mentioned the automatisation project. Interesting.
