After a few more days messing around with the neural network (this time i’ve trained it on 4 James Joyce books, around 4 MB of text) I decided to try making a whole book. I found out that Finnegan’s wake is roughly 1.3 MB of text, so I made 5 books of 1.3 MB length, altering a few variables on the neural network each time to see what changed. I picked the one I liked the most (temperature=0.9, for reference), and then spent a few hours formatting it. Then I went to Lulu and had it printed, because why not (The texts are all available in on Github).

After that, I looked at the Parapet, that weird poem thing I generated from it and showed in another post. I started looking for new words that it had invented. I found that around 20% of the words in the text were probably invented by the network itself, which is pretty impressive – a constant stream of new vocabulary, ripe for the picking. I started making a list, but after 2 pages I gave up. Here are the new words from the first 2 pages of ‘The Parapet’. I’ve already started defining a few of them, but it’s a lot of effort to do them all.
