Pickup Lines From Artificial Intelligences

Research scientist Janelle Shane, perhaps dissatisfied will the lines she's getting, has turned to neural nets to generate usable pickup lines.

By giving the neural network a large number of examples, theoretically it can produce its own original content which follows the form and structure of the original example.

“Gathering the dataset was much more painful than I had expected – I hadn’t really read many of these before, and most were obscene, or aggressive, or kind of insulting. I began to regret the whole project,” Shane wrote in a blog post.

Shane said that although the neural network figured out the basic form of pick-up line, it wasn’t able to replicate the wordplay needed for a truly cheesy, terrible line. However, the lines it did produce were a lot less creepy than regular pick-up lines.

  • I want to get my heart with you.
  • You are so beautiful that you know what I mean.
  • You are so beautiful that you make me feel better to see you.
  • I have a really falling for you.

Some lines are intriguing (which many women like), if not entirely clear:

  • Hey baby, I’m swirked to gave ever to say it for drive. If I were to ask you out?
  • Are you a candle? Because you’re so hot of the looks with you.
  • You look like a thing and I love you.
That last one sounded sort of hot robotic.

In Steven Spielberg's 2001 movie AI: Artificial Intelligence, robots are the smooth talkers; consider Gigolo Joe, a male Mecha with some pretty good lines.
