For over a decade, the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest has been America's premier venue for competitive humorism.
It's about time you've won it. There's just one problem: you're not funny.
Nothing a little Deep Learning can't fix.
We forced an AI to read over 600,000 contest submissions. Before going insane and deleting itself, it discovered nineteen distinct cartoon categories and built a separate recurrent neural network for each one.
Here are the fruits of its labors. Be careful, as some of these jokes are extremely powerful.
Please note that the displayed cartoons are representative only, and may not match the generated caption.
