Neural Networks and James Joyce

Neural Networks are one of my favourite parts of computing – they allow you to do an incredible range of things, from turning handwriting into text, to creating mildly incoherent literature. I’ve played around with creating one before, to count syllables for a haiku generator. That didn’t work so well, so I’ve decided to play around with one already written by someone else, and see what I can do with it.

The first thing I thought of was to make a haiku generating neural network, but it’s hard to find databases with text files of thousands of haiku. Instead, I’ve decided to train it on James Joyce novels. Andrej’s Github (linked above) gives a really good overview of what you need to do to get his neural network up and running, so i’ll leave that bit out.

Here is a large chunk of text created after feeding it Ulysses and Finnegan’s wake. It’s part of my plan to ultimately feed it all of Joyce’s novels, and then create a full length book of wonderful gibberish. (Note that I did edit it a little bit, to clean up a few words that were close to English words, fix dialogue formatting and so on. However, the vast majority of the text came out as is.)
