a neural net invents new lacroix flavors you won't find at the store
Some of the neural net teas now exist as Adagio Teas blends! Impressed at how Patricia managed to put together a plausible "Slippery Violet Sands" and a "Winter Snail Glitter Bomb"
Who wants neural net-generated tea?

What would it be like if machine intelligences of the far future tried to recreate tea?
This may be the most wandering.shop experiment I've ever done.
I'm as tired of "OMG AI" headlines as the next person, but this is legitimately really cool: https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/neagpb/ai-trained-on-old-scientific-papers-makes-discoveries-humans-missed
Because it's not "computer out-sciencing humans", it's "computer doing the super tedious literature search and finding possible connections you would've missed".
In case you missed it: I'm using a neural net to generate crochet patterns. Quite a few of them are space-devouring hyperbolic traps.
Results (and amazing test knits) on my birdsite and in the Ravelry LSG thread. Not posted here to avoid spamming you all with patterns. https://www.ravelry.com/discuss/lazy-stupid-and-godless/3775834

nothing to worry about. it's only mutant fly strains invented by a neural net
Decided to see what would happen if I trained a neural net to write names for self-aware AIs.
May I present: GPT-2 trained on AI names from Iain M. Banks's Culture novels
This AI will do its best to turn any picture into a recipe.

Palmer webcam is pointing in a new direction at the moment and WOW those mountains
possible application for neural net-generated landscapes: sarcasm
Have you SEEN runwayml's SPADE demo?
So much artistic potential, and no coding required. https://aiweirdness.com/post/185617397117/this-neural-net-makes-my-sketches-real

neural net writes recipes, someone probably already pointed this out but I still find it funny... Show more
...how the "cake recipe" from Portal sounds a bit like @janellecshane's NN-generated recipes. Like, when the net's "creativity" variable is set low, "it comes up with ... the most quintessential recipe titles" which include lots of chocolate cake, plus "An [early] version of the network ... just generates ingredients for pages and pages" instead of whole recipes.
There would likely have to be some other data mixed in to the set for it to generate ingredients like "an entry called how to kill someone with your bare hands," but you never know--you can get stuff like "1/4 oz can of fish casings" or "2 tablespoon minced fresh personn" IRL, plus people write some WEIRD things in their recipes sometimes, depending on where you source them from.
Not sure how I talked Philadelphia's Morris Animal Rescue into letting me name some of their kittens with a neural net. They did reject some names.
