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.
