The world’s most freakishly realistic text-generating A.I. just got gamified - Digital Trends

What would an adventure game designed by the worlds most dangerous A.I. look like? A neuroscience grad student is here to help you find out.
Earlier this year, OpenAI, an A.I. startup once sponsored by Elon Musk, created a text-generating bot deemed too dangerous to ever release to the public. Called GPT-2, the algorithm was designed to generate text so humanlike that it could convincingly pass itself off as being written by a person. Feed it the start of a newspaper article, for instance, and it would dream up the rest, complete with imagined quotes. The results were a Turing Test tailor-made for the fake news-infused world of 2019.
Of course, like Hannibal Lecter, Heath Ledgers Joker, or any other top-notch antagonist, it didnt take GPT-2 too long to escape from its prison. Within months, a version of it had found its way online (you can try it out here.) Now it has formed the basis for a text adventure game created by Northwestern University neuroscience graduate student Nathan Whitmore. Building on the predictive neural network framework of GPT-2, GPT Adventure promises to rewrite itself every time its played. Its a procedurally generated game experience in which players can do whatever they want within the confines of a world controlled by the fugitive A.I.
And you know what? Not since Sarah and John Connor teamed up with The Terminator to take on Skynet has the worlds most dangerous artificial intelligence been quite so much fun.
The game that rewrites itself
GPT-2 is basically an extremely powerful predictive text algorithm, Whitmore told Digital Trends. You give it some text and it tries to predict what comes next. This is really well-suited to text adventure games. You can feed in the player’s current location and their action — [for example], go east — and then you just ask GPT-2 to predict what text comes next, which is the consequence of that action. Then the player makes another action, and you have a game.
In GPT Adventure, the text world of the ...
