On the internet, nobody knows you're a bot

I used thousands of New Yorker cartoon contest caption submissions to classify about 100 cartoons into nineteen categories, and trained a neural network to generate new captions for each category. Some of them are kind of funny. [more inside]

MeFi Post Recommendation Engine

Just finished building a content recommendation engine for MeFi using natural language processing and non-negative matrix factorization techniques! It produces a list of post recommendations based on a user history of posts, comments and favorites. It can also make recommendations based on a piece of text, so for example, you could paste a particular post and it will return a list of other posts that have some similar characteristics. I hope you enjoy playing around with it! Please let me know what you think. Here's more info in case you're interested (: https://github.com/tomasbielskis/metafilterpostrecommender

Neural Networks Translate Images to Poetry

Neuralsnap generates an image caption using a model I trained (convolutional and recurrent neural networks), then uses another character-level recurrent neural net that I trained on ~40 MB of poetry to expand the caption into a poem. (In this example, generated from a Rothko painting, the red text is the direct image caption, and the rest is the poetic expansion.) [more inside]

Ten Thousand Sonnets

Using Python 2.7 and the Natural Language Toolkit, I created a program called Sonnetizer that generates 14-line rhyming sonnets in (mostly) iambic pentameter from any text corpus. Using Sonnetizer, I generated 10,000 unique sonnets from the sonnets of William Shakespeare, and compiled them into a PDF.

BrainTripping: Markov-chain your own path through the words of famous people.

Step inside the "brain" of Jesus, the Pope, Kurt Cobain, or Tupac to come up with your own sentences and stories. Words are suggested based on the language patterns of the brain (and you are limited to their vocabulary). There's a learning curve, but once you get past it, hilarious times can be had. Read my introduction post or check out the tutorial to get started. [more inside]
