Paragraph style: 16 lines of approx 42 chars each : Averaged Stochastic Gradient Descent : Screencast 2018-02-04 18:52:12

5038 poems of 16 lines of approx 42 chars each generated in 2h42m I am now utterly convinced of the impossibility of neural nets ever producing coherent contextually-sensitive verse, yet as language play, and a window into the inherent biases within humans, it is is impeccably intriguing and occasionally nourishing.

Easy reading? A few QRNN with constrained verse-lengths and randomized line lengths

Ode to simplicity: May the poem sit in the centre of the page like a stone. May its margins clear space in the mind. May consistent structure deliver semblance of an archetype. This must be poetry; it is shaped like a poem.

Averaged Stochastic Gradient Descent with Weight Dropped QRNN Poetry Generation [Screencast 2017-12-14 15:23:19]

Trying out a new algorithm: https://github.com/salesforce/awd-lstm-lm using another mildly revised training corpus Sources: a subset of Poetry Magazine, Jacket2, Bob Marley, Bob Dylan, David Bowie, Tom Waits, Patti Smith, Radiohead, 2 River, Capa, Evergreen Review, jhavelikes.tumblr.com, Cathay by Li Bai, Kenneth Patchen, Maurice Blanchot, and previous Rerites. Same crappy results. But boy does it churn out verses […]

SUBSETS: Small Data (Repeat Mimemesis provoked by lack of Dropout)

So after last week’s disastreous expansion, i decided to get austere. implement strategic pruning, and reduce the corpus. Selections were integrated from Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Patti Smith, 2 River, Capa, Evergreen Review, Tumblr, Cathay by Li Bai, Kenneth Patchen, Maurice Blanchot, and previous Rerites. Because the training occured without dropout, the model is overfit […]

Errors on the Path

What follows documents futility. Effort expended for nothing. It began when I (greedy for a more diverse vocabulary) expanded the corpus somewhat erratically. Added my tumblr blog jhavelikes.tumblr.com (for contemporary tech words), then Kraznahorkai’s War And War, Maurice Blanchot’s The Space of Literature, some Kenneth Patchen, and a set of contemporary poetry syllabus packages for […]
