A neural net that generates Simpsons episodes

Soulless Sam Simon - A Simpsons script bot

First we're gonna get an EC2 instance up and running with the training data

# Run on an AWS c4.xlarge EC2
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install r-base-core
$ sudo R

# In R now
> install.packages("dplyr")
> install.packages("readr")
> q()

# Back in bash
# Generate corpus
$ R -e 'library(dplyr); library(readr); simpsons_lines <- read_csv("") %>% arrange(episode_id, number) %>% filter(speaking_line == "true") %>% transmute(output_line = paste(raw_character_text, spoken_words, sep = ": ")); write_lines(simpsons_lines$output_line, "simpsons_script_lines.txt")'

What's the training corpus look like?

$ wc -l simpsons_script_lines.txt
