This Artificial Intelligence Software Spews Impressive Prose
OpenAI, a research institute co-founded by tech titan Elon Musk, has developed an advanced language processing algorithm that has researchers worried. The machine learning system was trained on 8 million web pages to create coherent written text that “looks pretty darn real,” with nuance and even humor. It only works about half the time, though, sometimes producing bizarre and nonsensical results.
Why the worry? Researchers fear their creation could be misused to produce high-quality fake news — which is why they’re not releasing it to the public.
