- OpenAI, the AI research company cofounded by Elon Musk, has made an AI tool which can generate fake text.
- The Guardian’s Alex Hern played with the system, generating a fake article on Brexit and a new paragraph for George Orwell’s “1984.”
- The company isn’t open-sourcing the system because it fears it could be misused, for example to infinitely generating negative or positive reviews.
AI research nonprofit OpenAI has created a system that can generate fake text from a single line — and it’s not open-sourcing the code for fear of misuse.
OpenAI was cofounded by tech mogul Elon Musk, and its sponsors include Silicon Valley heavy-hitters such as Peter Thiel and Amazon Web Services.
Last year it gained the praise of Bill Gates after it built a team of five neural networks capable of beating human players in the computer game “Dota 2.”
