You Look Like a Thing and I Love You (Voracious)
Friday, 09 April 2021

“You look like a thing and I love you” is one of the best pickup lines ever…according to an artificial intelligence system trained by Janelle Shane, creator of the blog AI Weirdness. In her book subtitled "How Artificial Intelligence Works and Why It's Making the World a Weirder Place", Shane creates silly AIs that learn how to name colors of paint, create the best recipes, and even flirt (badly) with humans.

<ASIN:0316525227>

Shane delivers the answer to AIs questions, including some you’ve probably never asked, such as: How can a computer design the perfect sandwich? What does robot-generated Harry Potter fan fiction sound like? And is the world’s best Halloween costume really “vampire hog bride”?
