Now that I have my local version of #BigGAN running, exploring the wilderness and weirdness of its latent space will become a bit faster and comfortable.

cool cg trick: humans have _absolutely no idea_ what reflections actually look like so you can get away with huge amounts of Bull Shit

Here's what it generated for "bookshop"
I love this so much

OMG this is AWESOME!! You can get it to generate images from hundreds of categories & even interpolate between two images.

@penguin42 For some reason these neural nets don't seem very averse to repeating words. I'm not sure why!

That's not to say that the neural net predictions were always believable, though. It also predicted these. (Can someone draw Kylo Ren in a lime blazer?)

I fed over 8,000 CNN Business headlines to a neural net to see which new headlines it would predict.
For some reason, it predicted companies behaving rather badly.

@janellecshane update: first agent is swamped with requests but in this Birdsite thread, multiple other agents are offering the same deal (!!) twitter.com/sethasfishman/stat

Anyone live in a US swing state and want a free critique from a good literary agent? See this really generous offer (and a list of states) at this birdsite post: twitter.com/PantherFist/status

@kistaro Hey, if you can get me a dataset (might have to go outside Seattle; I'd need at least a couple hundred), I'll do it!
