I fine-tuned the GPT-2 language model (345 million parameters) on tweets from people’s Twitter accounts to create AI versions of them, and then had the bots rewrite real tweets. I’ve generated hundreds of the following images and picked my favorites. All are surprisingly representative of their corresponding real Twitter accounts. Some are funny, some are profound, some are dark in a way that gives me pause. Here’s a real tweet about tunnels from Elon Musk rewritten by AI versions of Justin Bieber, Kanye West, and Katy Perry:
So far I’ve trained AI versions of the following people (listed below). If you have more suggestions for who/what you would like to see, let me know. I’ll release the models, code, and more tweet bot rewrites and conversations when I have time. Everything together took ~4 hours of programming time and ~2 weeks neural network training time. List of fine-tuned language models (in alphabetical order) I’ve trained so far:
Dwayne The Rock Johnson
Neil deGrasse Tyson
If you would like to learn about the basics behind the techniques used for this, you can watch my lectures on deep learning or watch my conversation with Greg Brockman (CTO, OpenAI) about the GPT-2 language model specifically:
