So it turns out that neural networks, among their many talents, can come up with awesome names for guinea pigs. I found this out when the Portland Guinea Pig Rescue contacted me one day, asking if I’d ever thought of training a neural network to name guinea pigs. I

More 80s action figures from the neural network

Earlier, I posted a collection of action figure names generated by a neural network trained on a list of about 3,700 action figures from the 1980s and 1990s, from lines including Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, G.I. Joe, Transformers, and My Little Pony. Here’s a bonus collection of
