AI is capable of making music, but does that make AI an artist?

NLP's ImageNet moment has arrived

On May 19, 2019
@Miles_Brundage shared
If BERT/GPT-2 etc. represent NLP’s ImageNet moment, in the sense of transfer from pretrained models providing value (paraphrasing @seb_ruder’s great article last year: https://t.co/EbSSMPpbv0), when if ever will RL have such a moment?
Open

Big changes are underway in the world of NLP. The long reign of word vectors as NLP's core representation technique has seen an exciting new line of challengers emerge. These approaches demonstrated that pretrained language models can achieve state-of-the-art results and herald a ...
