Generative Modeling with Sparse Transformers

On Apr 23, 2019
@cmarschner shared
RT @OpenAI: Releasing the Sparse Transformer, a network which sets records at predicting what comes next in a sequence — whether text, images, or sound. Improvements to neural 'attention' let it extract patterns from sequences 30x longer than possible previously: https://t.co/FZlDEPsi1A https://t.co/1cn1PO2nJX

We've developed the Sparse Transformer, a deep neural network which sets new records at predicting what comes next in a sequence—whether text, images, or sound. It uses an algorithmic improvement of the attention mechanism to extract patterns from sequences 30x longer than possible ...

RT @jeffclune: https://t.co/V2n40AA0Ct Even when they don’t break down completely, learning systems sometimes learn to achieve their goals in the wrong way. In a research paper last year, a group of 52 AI researchers recounted dozens of times when AI systems showed surprising behavior. 1/

@MatthewRayfield @halcy eg most of your pixel space is wasted (and perhaps model capacity) because of the inherently non-square aspect ratio of shoes. Could try switching to rectangular convos (pace https://t.co/2MoES8DlCR), or maybe an aspect ratio scale/descale step.
