How much you go crazy for FRIENDS?
And you have been hearing this 90's Sitcom 'Friends' characters about the reunion, this couldn't stop a cartoonist from making a computer program, that uses Google's artificial intelligence, to write the episodes further.
This mind-blowing use of technology will surely bring a grin to the diehard fans of the series.
He knew everyone was missing it, and so he came up with this. Scotty cartoonist Andy Herd has thereby built up a program that is busy jotting down new episodes.
He tweeted on his account the screenshots of the program running and capturing some awesome humor out of the fed in episodes.
"I was motivated by childlike fascination at the possibilities of machine learning and how it could be applied to humor."
"I think the scripts are actually better than some current TV sitcoms. I have received a lot of positive feedback". He used a neural network and fed inside it every single episode of the series. Then the computer started learning and forming some episodes of its own.
Joey: "Yeah!" Rachel: "Okay!" Gary: "Okay." Joey: "Yeah!" Monica: "Oh my God!" Phoebe: "maybe you need a pizza."
He admits that a few more improvements are required for the program to match the level of writing of an actual human being.
However, this is not the first time that someone has tried this. Back in 2014, Tom Armitage had used the episodes of the first season to mimic the characteristics of the characters.
