Shadoopy. Ray-Bella. Figgie – Smart Machine Generated Dog Names

By -

Yes these are names of actual dogs.

But they weren’t birthed by humans…well not directly anyway.

 These names and many more  were generated by a machine-learning algorithm.  The program creates dog names after studying  a list of 81,542 dogs registered in New York City.

The experiment, which took just a few hours Saturday, was something I’ve wanted to try since I saw the playful, awesome work of Janelle Shane and her experiments using neural networks to generate paint colorsguinea pig names and Harry Potter fan fiction.

Look at some  of these names the program spit out:

Rotson
Dudly
Lenzy
Murta
Cookees
Geortie
Dewi
Chocobe
Sckrig
Booncy
Cramp
Dango
