While I’ve been working out some issues I’ve been having with torch, I did some training on a database of all Jeopardy questions. Unfortunately, training was cut short by said torch problems, so I’ll have to resume that tonight. Here’s a sampling of my favorites: (read in Alex Trebek’s voice)
SINGERS,$800,’In 1969 this film classical former president says, I read that branch of the park recorded the top of the memoir’,Born in the Martian Empire
MUSEUMS,$600,’His first major commission treats a color’,a political plant
ROCK PRIZE,$400,’In 1992 this season was a Philip Harrison in 1999 in the Mark of the Dance Age in 1996′,Alice
FAMOUS WOMEN,$400,’The best state capital is a distinguished by this film by Elizabeth II’,Shakespeare
VICE PRESIDENTS,$1200,’An example of this senator displays with 100 miles in Mark the Palace Committee on April 1991′,John Hancock
THE AMERICA,$400,’In 1797 this president enters the southernmost word for the same name’,the Standard Sea
PEOPLE FROM PENNSYLVANIA,$2000,’The famous cathedral of this word meaning to hold it to the model of the Roman Empire’, Parthenon
The answer actually matches the question! Kinda! Too bad the category is “people from Pennsylvania.” As you can see, most of the questions tend to be gibberish. I hope that’ll resolve itself with more training or a larger network, though.
Setting the network’s temperature to the lowest possible results in variations on:
A MOVIE SCIENCE,$1000,’The state state of this country is a state where the state is a state in the state’,the Roman Party
THE SILVER SCREEN,$1000,’The state of this country is a state for the state of the state’,Mark Twain
Mostly lots of “The state” and “Mark Twain.” Also common occurrances: “The first president,” “Mariah Carey,” “Marie Antoinette,” “Charles Martin,” and something called alternatively “The Band of the Road,” and “The Band of the World.”
It did also produce this oddity:
THE SILVER SCREEN,$1000,’This country was a popular president of the state of the Sea of Fame’,The Man With The Brothers
Oooh. The Man With The Brothers is a little spooky. And “the Sea of Fame” sounds cool.
Some of the categories generated at higher temperatures are hilarious, even when the questions start to fall apart. For example:
THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM
WHAT A WAY A PERFARY WITH A PENNED?
THE SUPREME COURT WITH S
THE MISSING STREET
THE PRESIDENT’S FIRST 2000
BIBLICAL BOOK TITLES
ART TO THE LUMBER, VAMP
WHO ARE YOUR MEDICI
U.S. FOOD HEADLINES
I AM POETIC
And my all-time favorite:
DON’T PICK ME!
Honestly, that’s probably a real category, (as are some of the others I’m sure) but I don’t care. It genuinely made me laugh.
I’ll train the network for a bit longer tonight and see if results improve.
