The language model, called GPT-2 (a successor to GPT), was trained to predict the next words in 40GB of Internet text. Compared to the GPT model, the GPT-2 has more than 10X the parameters and trained to handle the same amount of data compared to its predecessor.According to a blog post from OpenAI posted on Feb. 14, the company has trained a large-scale unsupervised language model which generates coherent paragraphs of text."It achieves state-of-the-art performance on many language modeling benchmarks, and performs rudimentary … [Read more...] about Elon Musk-Backed AI Software Could Be Used To Spread Fake News
