It Was Inevitable: Someone Taught A Neural Network To Talk With Romance Novels

Computer scientists studying machine learning have trained artificial intelligence using human knowledge of the, uh, carnal variety. Neural networks are a form of artificial intelligence that “learn” using images or text. They then use that knowledge by mimicking our own brains. They have had a huge year, with major advances made by independent researchers, academics, and huge companies like Google. We’ve seen neural nets that are trained to identify animals in photos. We’ve seen neural nets trained to describe videos. Last week, Google said it’s using a neural network to generate responses to your emails. Alongside all of this progress, researchers and tinkerers have created dozens of experiments using open-source neural networks, uploading their results to GitXiv. Today, one of those tinkerers — Samim Winiger, whose work we’ve covered recently…
