“Thus, even though we are developing a general tool for theatre script generation, at the moment we only really need to generate one script.”
The researchers started experimenting with a pre-trained language model called GPT-2.
GPT-2 is an open-source model developed by the Elon Musk-organised OpenAI consortium trained on an enormous quantity of online English texts.
Once adequately trained, the generative language model is able to complete unfinished texts using similar language and covering related themes.
For example, if GPT-2 is fed the first paragraph of a news article, the model will try to generate a few additional paragraphs on the same topic, using the existing text for inspiration, while generating sentences about new concepts.
