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 quickly: 2651 poems in 16m09s (approx 2.75 poems per second, each poem is 88 words long).

Pause video below to read.
