Christmas comes with a lot of stories, folklore, and media characters. Most of these characters have nothing to do with each other. There’s baby Jesus, of course, and Santas Claus, but also Krampus, Rudolph, Belsnickel, the Grinch, Scrooge, the Little Drummer Boy, Yukon Cornelius, Zwarte Piet, Elf on the Shelf, the Yule Cat, Dominick The Donkey, and for some reason a Nutcracker, among others. Come up with a new Christmas character, and if you’re lucky you can make tons of money. Janelle Shane is not looking to make tons of money, but to train artificial intelligence algorithms. Her latest project is generating new Christmas entities. She fed a few existing characters into the neural network, and out came three Christmas weasels. But that’s not all. Go to Shane’s site, AI Weirdness, to meet the Hostile Choir, Chrishmak, the Blop, and more brand new, uh, things we can write a Christmas story around.
