Training LSTM: Fortune Cookie Fortune Generator


I wanted to see if I could generate new fortune cookie fortunes. I trained a LSTM network on this dataset of fortunes. The dataset is rather small (around 2,800 quotes). I chose to try the LSTM network this week because I didn’t get a chance to on the first week.

The final results are not that readable/understandable. I think to get more fortune cookie-like results, I should clean the dataset and get rid of unnecessary seperator characters (%) and remove the names of who is attributed to each quote.
