When I was trying to come up with a title for the AI Weirdness book, I tried training a neural net to generate them.

There were a LOT of rejected titles.


Please use  http://talktotransformer.com  to add to this list of things in the book

1. real-life applications
2. LOTS of cartoons
3. phantom giraffes
4. accidental murderbots
5. magical sandwich holes

this is the completion the neural net gave me. struggling to express what exactly about this is so disturbing.
