Artificial Intelligence writes a new Harry Potter chapter and it's unintentionally hilarious

Artificial Intelligence writes a new Harry Potter chapter and it's unintentionally hilarious”

Thus transpires the confrontation between Harry Potter and He Who Must Not Be Named in a just-published new chapter, "The Handsome One", from Harry Potter and the Portrait of What Looked Like a Large Pile of Ash This new tome-of which only the one chapter so far exists-is so not from the mind of J.K. Rowling. It then produced a 'predictive keyboard, ' a program that offers suggestions for what the next word in a sentence should be based on the last words written.

While the look and feel of the text may seem real enough, the writing certainly does not match the class of the original author, JK Rowling.

Chief among them is Jamie Brew, a former writer for The Onion and Clickhole, who had already worked on similar automated text prediction writings on Tumblr, where his objectdreams page includes procedurally generated, fictional work on X-Files, grammar rules, and even Craiglist ads.

Ron Weasley in particular becomes a freaky caricature of himself, as a self-absorbed wizard that wears Ron shirts and uses Ron magic, least of all does "a kind of frenzied tap dance" and "eat [s] Hermione's family".

Botnik Studios, a company that uses algorithms to train computers to behave in certain ways, has produced a brand new chapter from a new Harry Potter book.

It was then asked to write its own chapter, which starts with the epic words: 'Magic: it was something which Harry Potter thought was very good'.

"[Ron] saw Harry and immediately began to eat Hermione's family". Ron smiled. Ron reached for this wand slowly'.

To Harry, Ron was a loud, slow and soft bird.

"The tall Death Eater was wearing a shirt that said 'Hermione Has Forgotten How To Dance, ' so Hermione dipped his face in mud".

The closing line of the chapter also earned laughs: '"I'm Harry Potter", Harry began yelling. They looked at the door, screaming about how closed it was and asking it to be replaced with a small orb. "The dark arts better be anxious, oh boy!" "The password was 'BEEF WOMEN, ' Hermione cried".

Warner Brothers A young Daniel Radcliffe in one of the Harry Potter movies. The original tweet went viral with over 42,000 retweets in two days.

This just might be the biggest Harry Potter meme since Potter Puppet Pals did "The Mysterious Ticking Noise".
