My Little Ponies generated by neural network

Janelle Shane‏ trained a neural network on the names and attributes of My Little Ponies, then shared "some of the worst ones."

I used a program called a character-level recurrent neural network (char-rnn), which looks at examples of text (Pokemon, or Harry Potter fan fiction, or even guinea pig names) and learns to imitate them. I gave the neural network more than 1,500 names from My Little Pony Friendship is Magic Wiki, and let it start learning.
