What's a nice idea like yours doing in a place like this?
add, search, annotate, link, view, overview, recent, by name, random
news, help, about, links, report a problem
or get an account
Type in "The dog is nice." and the Pedanticator program
you "Such is the canine's genial affability, that one is
ineliminably towards him."
Great for dumb people who be wantin' to sound all smart
stuff because sounding all stupid like, sucks.
Here's the best part: it works
AI trying ot be funny.
Ehh, needs a little work. [doctorremulac3, May 25 2020]
||My liege and madam, to expostulate
What majesty should be, what duty is,
Why day is day, night night, and time is time,
Were nothing but to waste night, day, and time.
Therefore, since brevity is the soul of wit
And tediousness the limbs and outward flourishes,
I will be brief: your noble son is mad.
Mad call I it, for, to define true madness,
What ist but to be nothing else but mad?
||OK, nobody likes this idea, how about the fact that I've just
added the feature shown in the last line? It translates both
||Here's the above statement translated the other way: "Gotta
get to the
point, Hamlet's nuts.".
||Ah, but only mad north-north-west ...
||A declarative sentence is usually true or false. But
your typical declarative
sentence is not
fixedly true or false. It is true on one occasion and
false on another, because of the tenses of its verbs
varying references of its pronouns or demonstrative
other indicator words. By incorporating additional
the sentence, such as dates and the names of
places, we can obtain an eternal sentence: one that
true or false. Thus an eternal sentence need not be a
mathematics or of nature; it can also be a report of a
Now a proposition is the meaning of a sentence.
More precisely, since propositions are supposed to
be true or
and for all, a proposition is the meaning of an eternal
More precisely still, it is the cognitive meaning of an
sentence; that is, just so much of the meaning as
truth value of the sentence and not its poetic quality
||//WKTE. MS Word, Grammarly, and other word processing
tools have options to suggest simplified wording.//
||Can it translate simple and dumb sounding to complicated
and smart sounding and vice versa?
||"I doth protest this discordant cacophony of disjointed
deduction, these clattering miss-aligned cogwheels of
calamitous illogic!" = "WTF?"
||For [xen] there needs to be a TrumpBabble option ....
||Are you sure you meant "ineliminably"?
||//For [xen] there needs to be a TrumpBabble option// I posted that idea a few years ago... too lazy to look for, but it's there. I probably called the "Moronisation of Language in order to make it understandable by Trump supporters".
||"'Twas Brillig, and the Slithy Toves,
Did Gyre and Gimble in the Wabe ... "
||This is generally a scale of specificity, simple words are more general. How does the software know which road of specificity to travel?.
Nice, in this case, has been bent towards friendliness/ behaviour rather than shape/colour or a great ability to bark at sheep.
||Going the other way is less problematic.
||True, if you were able to program AI to do this your
talents could be used better on another project. AI might
not be the way to go. This could be a group interactive
thing where you have actual humans waxing poetic and
being creative with the translations in either direction
and they get voted up.
||For instance, looking at the example of me trying to
sound like a precious fancy lad: "I doth protest this
discordant cacophony of disjointed deduction, these
clattering miss-aligned cogwheels of calamitous illogic!" =
"WTF?" Getting AI to do that would be a waste of time.
||So Google would have a plugin that says "Re-write this
sentence" with a button "FANCY LAD" or "DUMBASS". You'd
click the sentence you wanted to try your hand at
translating, others could see that it was translated, click
on the varied reiterations of the message and upvote the
ones that were more popular.
||Hmm. That gives me an idea.
||But as you know [Doc], the right action needed for a particular path could be found anywhere, usually on unrelated paths. Maybe an A.I. needs a really whimsical task like this, to be bothered to substantiate in this existence.
||Hey any Stanford or MIT students out there, get on
this. It's fun and something breakthrough useful
might come of it.
||I'm wondering if any work's been done on AI joke
writing. Now there's an area that would be
challenging and might lead to some unexpected
||Found a link, AI created joke: "Why did the chicken
cross the road?
Because he got beat up and messed with."
||OK, little dark. I would think you could start with
"dad humor". "Why did the chicken cross the road?"
"Hi why did the chicken cross the road, pleased to
meet you, my name is Humorbot 9000."
||Although it might get old after a while.
