More often than not, the pleasure of watching a neural network perform a task comes when it fails. It’s not that thrilling to have Watson analyze your fridge and say you can make a proper stir fry. It’s much better when neural networks suggest you have Artichoke Gelatin Dog for dinner. The stupid mistakes are the funniest. But I have found the one task in which a neural network operates both properly and improperly and it is perfect: when it’s naming guinea pigs.

ARE YOU READY TO MEET THE GUINEA PIGS??
6) So with no further ado, the 2nd-ever bunch of AI-named adoptable guinea pigs in the world (and the only ones within 2800 miles of Philly)— Morris Animal Refuge 2020 (@MorrisAnimal) June 20, 2017
Spooty and Snofer!
Fizzby and Sprinket!
Biinshecklesseon! Honestly, who cares what’s going on in the world when Biinshecklesseon and Hally Flope exist?
