I want to try artificial intelligence in text creation just to demonstrate that the machine is already able to write like a human.
I am exposed to AI for my job – my friends and relatives can already play AI games on my phone – but I just want to go for a few extra levels of automation. I have an Android phone and I have the latest version of Emoji. What is more, I would like to put that to good use in the way I work and spend my time. One of my projects is to come back and implement this full automation. For me, an AI-emoji is the gold-standard. How might a person integrate AI-emoji? I also believe that the machine will act as an interesting resource to get some creative juices flowing. The applications of unsupervised learning have been overplayed for some time now, and yet sometimes it still needs to be used sparingly and creatively. I would love to be able to use supervised learning in the context of writing, or to see how to do so more effectively.
Of course there are tons of mistakes that can be easily pointed out as well. As I’m running a blog it’s really important that I write coherently and correctly about topics that make sense to me. There will be a lot of topics I have not even thought about for the past few years.
So what am I looking for in the trainable models? The most successful algorithms can already build beautiful, intuitive models. I am looking for a little more confidence that will allow to build a more accurate result.
It does what a human would do. I’m not necessarily trying to promote machine learning or AI. I’m hoping that by opening up the machine to this particular task, by combining the soft and hard skills, we will also open up the computer to a broader range of use cases in the future.
In contrast to your work on ‘Deep’ and ‘Fluffy’ which were much more poetic and dystopian, you have been actively interested in exploring spaces where the machine makes humans smarter, that both scientists and the general public might not think about too much at the moment.
Since we can’t test it in an actual writing environment, I decided to write it in an artificial intelligence environment. In this artificial intelligence environment, the computer has to memorize all the popular traditional, British English styles (we’ll call these top-vowels and beveled, some examples: l, n, m, r, s, v, k) that don’t change, that’s why it doesn’t even know the root of the word. It has to build this similarity and do this automatically.
Another reason is it’s an interactive and concrete test. The users will not get bored and will like it. I wanted to interact a bit more with it and add different words. Some of them were not actually those words, but generally interesting words or phrases. A bot that writes poetry?
I found that bots usually think they can write poetry. Is that true?
As far as I know, machine translation just translates words (i.e. you translate “I love you” into Russian and you get “?????????? ?? ??????? ??”. What are the best ways to make better characters? Can a human copy good-quality output from an AI?
For the first time, researchers from Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) found that a computer made substantial progress in text generation, with one-third of their English-language text generated with programs and one-quarter that were derived from human-made paragraphs of text.
The researchers ran more than 5 million attempts to improve their multi-layered character generator. These text experiments demonstrated that the program eventually managed to generate new grammar rules that consistently produced human-made paragraphs within about 3.2 percent of their entire production run.
I love artificial intelligence in text creation, so by this I mean I like to interact with the text and find people’s code fragments, which I can put into pictures. The real software, in a way, is simply I give the people a picture, and then I ask them to let me do what they’re doing with their images. So, there’s definitely a lot of things that I’d like to achieve, but I haven’t really found a way yet. I’m still working on it, I’m still looking for the best ways to make it as interesting as possible.
Do you think the robots are going to be a viable alternative for writers, and do you foresee there being more writers that rely on technology in their art?
Well…think about that all previous text has been created by the machine and not by me!
