OpenAI’s fiction-spewing AI is learning to generate images

On Jul 16, 2020
@davegershgorn shared
RT @_KarenHao: Kind of an insane paper from @OpenAI, which won an honorable mention for best paper at the International Conference on Machine Learning this week. Researchers trained GPT-2 on pixels instead of words and created a model that can spit out images. https://t.co/6Soc3IbDJL

In February of last year, the San Francisco–based research lab OpenAI announced that its AI system could now write convincing passages of English. Feed the beginning of a sentence or paragraph into GPT-2, as it was called, and it could continue the thought for as long as an essay with ...

A growing number of prominent hospitals are using AI-powered tools to advise patient care. But patients often aren't informed, a STAT examination finds.
