YouTuber asks an AI for video ideas, gets a surprising response

#artificialintelligence

British YouTuber Tom Scott has such a distinctive style to his videos that they can -- and have -- lent themselves quite well to parody in the past, both from humans and AIs alike. But for his latest video, Scott decided to use this to his advantage. After getting access to OpenAI's GPT-3 text generator, Scott fed it a large number of his previous video titles to see if it could come up with some new and original story ideas for him. And after a few false starts with titles that were either too boring or nonsensical, it ended up nailing it. "GPT-3 has a setting called Temperature, which is basically how predictable it should be," explains Scott in the video above.

If you're not interested in how Recurrent Neural Networks work, feel free to jump down to the implementation. A Recurrent Neural Network (RNN) is a type of neural network that specializes in processing sequences. Given a seed "She walked her ___", an RNN might predict "dog". The trick with RNNs in text generation is using predictions as seeds for further predictions. One issue with standard neural networks as it applies to text geneation is that it has a fixed input and output size.
