Most famous book quotes completed by artificial intelligence

How could artificial intelligence handle thoughts from the wisest of humans about objects that make humans smarter: books?

When talking about artificial intelligence, most of us still use words like “stupid,” “random,” “nonsense,” or “ridiculous.”

However, already now, some AI systems can be smarter than people who don’t read.

One such tool has been released to the public recently, and you can test it yourself. It’s called Talk to Transformer and you can access it in your web browser.

Created by Adam King, this text generator completes your custom snippet using a modern neural network. Opposite to predictive keyboards, which suggest single words and wait for your next input, the tool generates entire paragraphs of text.

Talk to Transformer is simple to use, but it’s based a cutting-edge technology – a modern GPT-2 language model released by OpenAI, and trained on a dataset of 8 million web pages.

As a result, your text sample, be it a single word or a long passage, is processed against 345 million parameters to predict the next word, taking into consideration all previous words within the same text.

Can a robot which has “read” millions of web pages be smarter than you? Why not testing it? I’ve played with book quotes, but you can start typing anything you are interested in, for instance “Artificial intelligence is…”

Initially, I wanted to play with Talk to Transformer purely for fun. Everything had changed when I typed the first part of Stephen King’s “Books are a uniquely portable magic.” First results were unimpressive, but after a few times, I saw a text: “Books are a uniquely human medium.”

That’s why you are reading this list. Can a thought generated by a machine be as bright and inspiring as the one created by a human? Can a word “stupid” used to describe AI be replaced by “this is quite interesting”? Can a machine trick you into thinking it is a human?

One quote resembles answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. A famous Swedish proverb completed by AI looks like this: “In a good book the best is between 5% and 7%.”

We have to keep reading books, if we don’t want algorithms and artificial neural systems to overcome us with their intelligence.

You know, as two humans named “King” and a machine called “GPT-2” say: books are a uniquely human medium.
