    Idk if the site got the hug of death or what. But or their github at seem to work for me.
  • Try to talk with GPT3 (GPT-Neo)
    The GPT-Neo model was released in the EleutherAI/gpt-neo repository by Sid Black, Stella Biderman, Leo Gao, Phil Wang and Connor Leahy. It is a GPT3 like causal language model trained on the Pile dataset.
  • Recommendations for a beginner? | 2021-03-31
    I'm an engineer, mostly web, but am fascinated by AI and would like to learn more. I found this repo that looks like a great start but at the same time is a little intimidating. There are so many esoteric terms used that if feels as if I am at stage 1 again. AI masters of this subreddit, how did you ramp up and if you could do it all over again are there any resources and/or things you would have done differently to get you where you are now?

  • AI Can Generate Convincing Text–and Anyone Can Use It | 2021-03-29
    As someone who works on a Python library solely devoted to making AI text generation more accessible to the normal person ( ) I think the headline is misleading.

    Although the article focuses on the release of GPT-Neo, even GPT-2 released in 2019 was good at generating text, it just spat out a lot of garbage requiring curation, which GPT-3/GPT-Neo still requires albeit with a better signal-to-noise ratio.

    GPT-Neo, meanwhile, is such a big model that it requires a bit of data engineering work to get operating and generating text (see the README: ), and it's unclear currently if it's as good as GPT-3, even when comparing models apples-to-apples.

    That said, Hugging Face is adding support for GPT-Neo to Transformers ( ) which will help make playing with the model easier, and I'll add support to aitextgen if it pans out.

  • To the guys whose exsistence on this subreddit revolves around complaining and proclaiming that you are going to boycott the game, here's a suggestion: start your own fork of the game. You know, so you would shut up about the devs pocketing your money and not living up to your standards. | 2021-03-27
    There's an open GPT-3 project up to around 2 billion parameters. A far cry from 175 billion, but it's on its way.

    It sounds like a university was doing this though. If they get an industry partner they could scale it up. This also says it’s open source (though I don’t think I saw a link?). That would put them on competitive footing with Eleuther.
  • GPT-3 tries pickup lines | 2021-03-23
    I tried the same prompt on the open-source recreation of OpenAI GPT-3 -- GPT Neo (, specifically on their 2.7B model -- which should correspond to the smallest model in the article (Ada) that produced just pure garbage. The result is surprisingly good:
