"The Horrible Overgrown CIA Chorus" Neuronal network comes up with names for effects pedals


Neuronal network trained with effect pedals names.

There’s also lots of other cool stuff on the website.


Using a neuronal network for such a simple task is complete nonsense. There are simply no (hidden) patterns to “learn” other than the obvious ones (grammar rules).

A simple randomisation algorithm (like its used in many games for randomly naming items) will deliver the same or even better results faster and with less resources.

(sorry, the software architect within me can’t withstand such buzz words nonsense)


You have to admit, though, the results are hilarious! :wink:


“I train neural networks, a type of machine learning algorithm, to write unintentional humor as they struggle to imitate human datasets. Well, I intend the humour. The neural networks are just doing their best to understand what’s going on”.

Humour beats efficiency, always. I totally see your point though.
