NEURAL NETWORKS RAP BATTLE

Generating Hip Hop Lyrics with Vector Space Models

Google just announced a line-up of familiar devices - just made better, with AI. As all aspects of life are slowly mediated by machine learning, what’s left for us humans to do? Are creative endeavours the last hope for human supremecy over machines? 

Karteek Addanki, Data Scientist Quant at Eclipse Trading, will have his neural networks face off with humans in a rap battle to the death. Can we use neural networks to surface lyrical patterns and use those to generate hip hop lyrics? In this talk, he shares his experiences, from scraping a hip hop database, setting up a ML pipeline, to what motivated his model choices. Come closer, form a circle around the battle entrants and see who comes up with the sickest verse!
