Decided to see what would happen if I trained a neural net to write names for self-aware AIs.
May I present: GPT-2 trained on AI names from Iain M. Banks's Culture novels


@janellecshane "Pickles And Harpsichord" sound like a law firm. ;-)
OTOH, "Hand Me The Gun And Ask Me Again" sounds like something that you'd see on a t-shirt.
Oh, and the cat names are all perfect!

If anyone wants to know how the **#^ such weird names turn up? "Protip: Don’t Ask"
