Algorithm(ia) how to make nothing December 30, 2016

Recently we found out new web-service http://demos.algorithmia.com/colorize-photos/
They say that they "Use Deep Learning to Automatically Colorize Black and White Photos".



As I think, this statement is not entirely truth. "It" actually can paint sky in blue and grass in green. Of course "it" thinks that human skin is always creamy-brown.
But when I uploaded in "it"



this simple picture, "it" responded by this:




So, we have taught Solar Green to identify about 100 colors. But what the fuck about "Colorful Image Colorization microservice"?
As a matter of fact, this is result of Solar Green Color recovery. The process successfully passed this test about a year ago!



To talk about that service, I'm tend to think, "it" is some type of amusement. But there isn't any common with color recovery.
