The NLP Cypher

#artificialintelligence

Loads of NLP research and code came in this week. But first… is your location actually hidden?… "PySimpleGUI is a Python package that enables Python programmers of all levels to create GUIs." It currently leverages the fairseq library but authors plan to convert to Hugging Face according to their repo on GitHub. The TrOCR model outperforms the current state-of-the-art models on both printed and handwritten text recognition tasks.


GPT-3's free alternative GPT-Neo is something to be excited about

The advent of Transformers in 2017 completely changed the world of neural networks. Ever since, the core concept of Transformers has been remixed, repackaged, and rebundled in several models. The results have surpassed the state of the art in several machine learning benchmarks. In fact, currently all top benchmarks in the field of natural language processing are dominated by Transformer-based models. Some of the Transformer-family models are BERT, ALBERT, and the GPT series of models.


Open source NLP is fueling a new wave of startups

Let the OSS Enterprise newsletter guide your open source journey! Large language models capable of writing poems, summaries, and computer code are driving the demand for "natural language processing (NLP) as a service." As these models become more capable -- and accessible, relatively speaking -- appetite in the enterprise for them is growing. According to a 2021 survey from John Snow Labs and Gradient Flow, 60% of tech leaders indicated that their NLP budgets grew by at least 10% compared to 2020, while a third -- 33% -- said that their spending climbed by more than 30%. Well-resourced providers like OpenAI, Cohere, and AI21 Labs are reaping the benefits.

Well-resourced providers like OpenAI, Cohere, and AI21 Labs are reaping the benefits. As of March, OpenAI said that GPT-3 was being used in more than 300 different apps by "tens of thousands" of developers and producing 4.5 billion words per day.


How to build your own meme generator with machine learning

#artificialintelligence

In this article, I'll show you how I built a system called AI-Memer that generates memes using the latest AI models. I start with a high-level description of the system components before getting into the background of memes and details of the components. I'll then show you how to generate your own memes using the Google Colab, here. After a brief discussion of results and next steps, you can see some sample memes in the appendix. Oh, and I'll show a newly generated meme at the head of each section.
