birdsite, language models
I posted a thread to twitter a few weeks back with thoughts on poetry, voice and pretrained language models that I never crossposted here. here it is: https://twitter.com/aparrish/status/1286808606466244608
the only part I'm 100% sure about is the last tweet: "maybe my reticence to make use of these models is just as much a function of how dreary and distressing it seems to co-write poetry with twelve years of chewed up internet, regardless of how powerful the language model might be. shrug, the end"
