BRERIN (Sense Lab Philosobot – Ep69 )

BRERIN

A Philosobot:
Trained on the collected book-length works
of Erin Manning and Brian Massumi

Neural nets learn how-to write by reading.
Each reading of the corpus is called an epoch.

This neural net read all  the collected book-length works
of Erin Manning and Brian Massumi
69 times (in approx 8 hours
using a TitanX GPU).

+ ~ +

Now it writes 70 word segments (that end in a sentence).
Matching as best it can vocabulary and cadence of the corpus.

It cannot match the thought, but reflects a simulacrum of thought:
the thought inherent within language, within reading, within writing.
