Meet your Artificial Self: Generate text that sounds like you

13:30-17:00, January 25

Workshop / Overview

In this workshop you will create a language model that generates text which sounds like you.

Participants will download their chat history (from Whatsapp, Telegram and other sources) and fine-tune a text generation model. As an alternative to using your own data, we can provide publicly available datasets of famous people.

Participants can then use this model to create a simple application which allows you to communicate with the model.

Workshop / Outcome

Participants will be able to create their own text generation models. In the process they will learn what language models are, how to fine-tune them and the challenges which arise.
