Help a Computer Win the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest

Help a Computer Win the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest

Each week, The New Yorker challenges its readers to come up with a caption for one of their cartoons. The creative geniuses at The Pudding have started an experiment: Can artificial intelligence create humour, good enough to win the contest? Each week, it will produce three captions, and you can help train the model by telling it how good they are. Check it out. (Bonus: did you know that there are three universal captions that work with every cartoon?)
