i think that people doing data-augmentation are really kind of providing evidence like "this thing is like this other thing, and not like this particular thing"

so there's a way of framing data-augmentation as a kind of re-shuffling of categories of knowledge

i.e. heres a person, and they're the same if we rotate them, and so on, so all those images of rotated people are still people

c.f. i just learned that this person is a man, that means all these other people that i didn't know about are men, and that rules out these people being men, etc ...

there's some kind of strong relation here
