Machine Wisdom #171
There are a lot of different English translations of the Tao Te Ching, so I was curious what a computer would produce if it were trained on a bunch of them. The idea was that maybe some commonality of the translations could be distilled this way.
I took 94 translations and trained a simple character RNN for 10 epochs, with some interesting results - example output here
It gets fixated on a few words/phrases - "It is the mother of the world." and variations appear a lot, giving it a weird cult-like vibe
