This seems to be a year for AI experiments centered around Christmas movies. MIT Technology Review generated some titles and plot summaries (I would probably watch The Christmas StorK) and Botnik Studios has been using predictive text to write weird new Christmas movie plots and summaries. So when Nicole Kobie

Neural networks are a type of computer program that imitate the way that brains learn to solve problems. They’re used for face recognition, self-driving cars, language translation, financial decisions, and more. I mainly use them to write humor. My process starts with a dataset - something that the neural
