AI Dungeon 2: Creating Infinitely Generated Text Adventures with Deep Learning Language Models

Imagine an infinitely generated world that you could explore endlessly, continually finding entirely new content and adventures. What if you could also choose any action you can think of instead of being limited by the imagination of the developers who created the game? This is the vision of AI Dungeon 2. In the first AI … More AI Dungeon 2: Creating Infinitely Generated Text Adventures with Deep Learning Language Models

Samples from AI Dungeon 2

Several months ago after GPT-2 came out we built an AI generated text adventure called AI Dungeon which you can try out yourself. Based on the smaller version of GPT-2 AI Dungeon uses deep neural networks to generate actions and the results of those actions. Since AI Dungeon came out several new and better text … More Samples from AI Dungeon 2

Introducing Holodeck

Today, we are excited to release the first public version of Holodeck—a high-fidelity simulator built on top of Unreal Engine 4 (UE4). Holodeck is a python package which enables you to download pre-built worlds, and interact with them through a simple, high-level interface. Holodeck currently contains a simple sphere robot, a UAV (quadcopter), an Android, … More Introducing Holodeck

Practical Advice for Building Deep Neural Networks

In our machine learning lab, we’ve accumulated tens of thousands of training hours across numerous high-powered machines. The computers weren’t the only ones to learn a lot in the process, though: we ourselves have made a lot of mistakes and fixed a lot of bugs. Here we present some practical tips for training deep neural … More Practical Advice for Building Deep Neural Networks
