The name Equal Share comes from an elementary math puzzle: “Mr. Badger is celebrating his birthday with six friends. He wants to divide a square birthday cake for himself and his six guests to ensure everyone receives an equal share. But how does he do this? After some reflection, he realizes that the area of any radially-cut piece is proportional to the length of its edge. Mr. Badger wraps a piece of string around the perimeter of the cake and then divides the string into sevenths. Now, he can measure around the cake’s perimeter to make each cut.” With a little know-how, we can find equitable solutions for everyone.
Meow Meow Press, an imprint of Equal Share Press, specializes in experimental works that push the boundaries of technology and artificial intelligence, using these creative tools to inspire and innovate. The name Meow Meow Press is an homage to the cat classifiers commonly used as a simple introduction to the concepts of machine learning. By naming our imprint Meow Meow Press, we are playfully acknowledging the role that these classifiers play in the field of artificial intelligence and celebrating their importance in a fun and lighthearted way.
Equal Share Press was established in 2021 and is based in Arlington, Virginia.
