I just found this seemingly genius new website from Imgflip, which automatically generates memes and captions using a neural network. According to Imgflip, the captions for the memes are generated by a deep artificial neural network. The text generation is hardcoded, but they’ve put a maximum text length limit to make sure the memes make some sense.
The model uses character-level prediction, so you can specify the prefix text of one or more characters to change the way the text is generated.
The network was trained using public images generated by users of the Imgflip Meme Generator for the top 48 most popular meme templates. Imgflip does add that no profanity filtering was done, so you may encounter extra A.I. generated vulgarity in your memes.
That being said, check out some of the good and bad memes I ended up generating:
Some of the memes are actually pretty funny, and some just straight up makes no sense. But then again, that has it’s very own sense of humour, laughing at what A.I. thinks you think is funny. If you were keen on making your own memes, click the link here!
It’s overall just a great way to pass the time, maybe make some pretty good memes with memorable templates many are accustomed to. For me, during the MCO, I’m sure to find a lot of time to make some ridiculously hilarious memes, even if I don’t post em’ up. But be warned, you may see an influx of stupidddd memes on our Facebook page.
If that’s what you’re into though, come on over and check out what we’re up to on Facebook here!
