I wrote up my experience of being a "Something in Residence" at Runway this summer: https://medium.com/runwayml/my-runway-summer-e22c8abe3a99 includes stuff about sentence encoding, variational autoencoders, computer-generated poetry, etc. etc. etc.
(upthread link is to Medium, because that's where Runway hosts their blog. I'm happy to provide the text by other means if you don't want to click through on a Medium link—just let me know)
