I'm using the textrnn library to generate book titles. I've trained a neural network on my GoodReads library, i.e. a mix of Dutch and English books. After 40 epochs (training passes) it generates things that sound like something from Lewis Caroll's Jabberwocky.

Strongly (and respectfully) disagree with @NandoDF here. ML has a deep reproducibility problem. "Successful" methods are often unstable and require tricks not described in paper. Rarely have I been able to repro results without looking at assumptions in code but not in paper.

New blogpost! If your input dataset is biased in any way, that same bias will end up in the results of the generator trained on that same dataset. #nlg

By the way, this Twitter meme is PERFECT for a bot. You could build a "Hi, I'm a (...)" generator based on a collection of movie quotes, game dialogue, or the script of a tv-series.

Hi, I'm a computer scientist working in natural language generation. You may know me from my greatest hits "Can't we automate this?", "OF COURSE I'm writing another Twitter bot", "Looking for a better corpus" and "No, I did NOT generate this thesis chapter (but I wish I had)".

I don't think so, as CLIN is a relatively small conference. But you can ask the organisers. ;)

I'll be speaking about my new project Churnalist, a headline generator for game contexts, at @29_clin as part of the track "Creating text is fun!" (great track name). Looking forward to seeing the Dutch computational linguistics community again at January 31st. :)
