Recently, deep learning and machine learning specialists have managed to design and deploy various algorithmic representations of biological neural networks – the key instruments in our body responsible for cognitive processes such as vision, hearing, and decision-making – bringing a novel approach to teaching machines by experience. AI may soon become capable of composing short stories about itself.
The early attempts indicate that indeed AI can be taught creativity. Three years ago, Ryan Kiros from the University of Toronto published an open-source project on GitHub called a neural storyteller. The neural network was trained on a bunch of romance novels to deliver somewhat tongue-in-cheek descriptions for images. […]
