This Neural Network’s Hilariously Bad Image Descriptions Are Still Advanced AI

When will a neural network know who Donald Trump is? How long until one can come up with a joke on its own? How about recognize Yoda? It may not be much longer, with neural network models progressing at breakneck speed. But there’s still a long way to go, as demonstrated by an experiment by Samim Winiger, who usually goes by just Samim, a self-described “narrative engineer” who experiments with AI and machine learning to tell stories. Samim recently asked a neural net to caption a series of pop culture videos and clips from movies to illustrate the huge variance in how accurate these algorithms are—producing some amazing stupid and funny machine-written descriptions of Kanye West, Luke Skywalker, and even Big Dog.
