Doodles for Visualizing 1D Convolutions in TensorFlow

A guy named Evan asked a question about how to imagine 1D convolutions in TensorFlow. I responded with some hand-drawn sketches (which turned out pretty clean!). They might be useful to others in the future, so I figured this would be a decent stop-gap as I haven’t posted anything here in a while.

This is as good as time as any to mention that I’m working on a post whose intention is to visualize the convolution operation in more detail, emphasizing the intuitive 3D nature (and focusing less on the specific numbers).
