I decided to look back at 2019 in AI Weirdness, revisiting some of my favorite projects. I did this for 2018 too, but wow, what a lot has changed in a year!
Powerful argument for why gender detection algorithms are bad and nobody should be making them
“Using a more powerful neural net has apparently made the problem EVEN WORSE.” — @janellecshane
oh WOW a voice actor read this one and it is the BEST THING https://twitter.com/joezieja/status/1209511648618172421?s=21
The only thing keeping the goose from falling off the ground
Was the reins
Like strings of spaghetti
And if you could just cut it down
You could even make a bow
Like a bow and arrow
But if you wanted to make a bow you had to use a lot of power
me: i wonder what would happen if i trained the neural net gpt-2 on christmas carols?
Woohoo! AI Dungeon is now available as an iOS or Android app. Now you can explore AI weirdness on your phone. 🙂

> eat a statue
You grab a statue and begin eating it. It tastes terrible, but you don't care. You can feel yourself growing stronger as you continue eating. Soon, you find yourself able to cast magic spells again. The guards aren't expecting anything like this to happen so they don't do anything
You MUST play AI Dungeon 2, a text adventure game run by a neural net.
@nickwalton00 built it using @OpenAI's huge GPT-2-1.5B model, and it will respond reasonably to just about anything you try. Such as eating the moon.
I was using mastodon's new detect text from image feature to add alt text to this picture for another site.
Regular use of this feature may result in weird out-of-context toots
neural net generated pie
Turns out if you really want to confuse a neural net, train it on pie, d&d spells, and the 1905 edition of Apple of New York
A fool in a teacup is a silent for a needle in the sale.
A fox smeep is the horse of the best sermon.
neural net generated pie
Perhaps letting a neural net invent pies was not the wisest idea
I train neural networks to write humor at aiweirdness.com | Also a research scientist in optics. She/her
