I was experimenting with the neural network used by GPT-2 and set it up to write me a horror story about 3d printing. I wrote the first paragraph, then let it write the rest.

Here is the result.

Printing Babies

He had spent months modifying the 3d printing machine. He now believed it was capable of copying organic material. He entered the code for the design and began the process. Gradually the new artifact took shape. It was a small, perfectly formed human child.  

Both it and the printer looked like mannequins. Tironia's first bath didn't end well.  After the initial bath, he had drawn into a bathtub full of water. The water was super hot, and a layer of gelatinous material had dripped down into the bathtub and onto his waist. Shizuku knocked the bath towel into place and swung up her long legs to push herself under the water.

It wasn't too early to wake up... Tironia felt something pulling at his his waist. The bath towel was extremely hot.  He realized it was her hand that was moving.
Tironia broke out of her dream of clinging to his shoulder and turned around.
"Today was... a failure".

Despite her regretful words, Tironia still felt as if he had reached his goal.
"It's the material we're using" . He said. "We need live organic material to complete it".  "That's OK. We can always buy it when we need to" .  
Of course we are more interested in how it feels inside... 
A couple of weeks later we got some strange pictures in the mail. A form with a return address from a lab in South Korea. They had some amazing things on it! A flesh made up of 70% human, 30% cadaver, and 10% polymer. The company in question is called Chalice Lab.

We ordered flesh made up of 70% human, 30% cadaver, and 10% polymer from Chalice lab. This time it would work. We were sure.  But then I got my hands on the "flesh of the rotting dead". I'll spare you the details. Suffice it to say that it wasn't exactly the shiny, freshly made "flesh of the living". After testing it to make sure that it still produced (hopefully) some changes in form, function, and vibe that were necessary to make it totally new, there was a slight variation in taste I wanted to achieve. "Found my next project!


Creepy.

From a different Ai.

He had spent months modifying the 3d printing machine. He now believed it was capable of copying organic material. He entered the code for the design and began the process. Gradually the new artifact took shape. It was a small, perfectly formed human body. It had no eyes , no mouth and no hands. Instead it had three sets of arms and two sets of legs with feet. The head was large with a large protruding horn growing out of it. This horn was still a mystery but it was apparently the main feature that connected the new human to the outside world.

It was the start of something amazing but not a very good one. The new human began to talk to itself and began to move around the laboratory. It did this for a while until the researchers realized that it was trying to communicate with them. The researchers immediately began to try to figure out what the creature was trying to tell them. After some time they discovered that the creature was a young girl. She began to sing a song and it soon became apparent that she was actually using the device to sing in the lab.

The scientists took her outside and placed a tape recorder on the ground in front of her. When the recording was finished the girl disappeared and the scientists returned to the lab to investigate the recording. After investigating the recording, they discovered the strange thing inside the machine that was emitting the voice of the girl that had been singing. Once they had finished their research, they decided to kill themselves. The new girl disappeared and they were left with the tape recorder and the mystery of why the recording on the tape was playing the voice of their own thoughts.

They left the laboratory and began their journey home to die.




They make quite good writing partners, I think. Got to be a bit concerned what we're teaching them, though!

Interesting.

I think if you experimented with a few of these you'd see a pattern forming or be able to spot the formulas at work.  

But yeah, might be a useful tool if you were suffering from writer's block and needed some inspiration as to where the story could go next.

It's not so much a formula as it takes in all the writing available from the Internet and then tries to construct coherent sentences based on what was written before using 1.5 billion parameters.

Considering it was just released to the public by openai, I'm pretty impressed.

It's already superb at generating songs, where it's slightly off beat language works well.

There's a longer way to go with story, but it's already pretty good, I think. It is remarkably good at understanding tone, which surprised me and it's quite good at generating plot points. Obviously it's not going to pass the muster as a proper piece of writing, but it certainly provides inspiration.

Well, that's very...creepy. I rather like the macabre and surreal tone of the first one. I agree with Mark it could inspire.

The latter one feels a bit repetitive, especially the last paragraphs.

Very interesting to read regardless and I'd like to see a finished product with your AI collaborator, Rick.

Agreed. There's a big difference in what the two ai's were doing. The second, I think, was approaching it more from a predictive text angle and was trying to choose the most obvious word to follow the preceding, Which caused it to feel robotic and repetitive. It got stuck on certain verbs.

That said, I liked the core of the story, a created being with some new sense organ.

The first one is quite sophisticated in what it's doing. Seeming to comprehend that the child was made from the wrong substance and even trying to logically work out what it should have been made out of. It seemed to also understand that something is wrong with the child, and that it would melt during bathtime, though it got confused. It even seemed to attempt a twist/dramatic irony at the end, revealing what they really want is to eat it. Which was interesting.

I particularly liked the line: "Of course we are more interested in how it feels inside..." which is delightfully creepy and can be understood on at least three levels I can think of. Two of them not pleasant at all.

I'd love to know where it got the idea for 70% human, 30% cadaver, and 10% polymer from as well. I googled it without success. For a computer, it's very bad at arithmetic, but surprisingly creative to suggest a mix of living, dead and artificial flesh.

I work in software development, including A.I. There are always formulas and patterns in there, just like there are formulas and patterns in human learning. If it's learning from the internet it may end up developing into Skynet lol - but yeah it is impressive and a useful tool.

Do you have a link to where we can try this out?

The best ready made one is Talk to Transformer.

The software is GPT 2, so you'll be able to find other apps if you Google that, or Google apps like Talk to Transformer.

https://talktotransformer.com

The quality of them depends entirely on the size of the data set you put into it, and the quality of the data set. The more it has to reference, the better it is.

I had a go but it just seems to generate random articles based on keywords I enter and it did't write much. Maybe because my novel is sci-fi comedy and a bit bonkers I may have confused it. Here's an example:

The original first paragraph of my Cyborn novel.

In the mid-21st century, after the drone wars, the bitcoin uprising and the ill-fated extinction-level event contest, the world was a blank canvas. Not literally of course, but it was devoid of cities, most species and there was a vast crater in the middle of England in the shape of an old man's codger.

Then what the GPT 2 writes next:

Leaving Oolong teas for two years, seeing the ruins of Daring Do Hideous Beach for the first time, and cycling down the dirt road that encircles the land that once led to...

It doesn't write anymore so I'm not sure how you get it to try and write a full story. I've tried it a few times and it always comes up with different ideas but they rarely fit.

It bases what's next on what's gone before. So, you have to learn how to talk to it.

The opening exposition you've put in is too complicated, there are too many strands for it to follow. Try them one at a time, or try describing what happens at the start of the actual story.

Then you have to copy what it wrote and paste it into the box so it can follow its own story logic.

Yeah - but does it eliminate orphans?

I think it responds well when seeded with text blocks that are hyper focused on a particular subject, including dark rants of impending doom. So, I dredged some up for it to play with, and… was quite amazed at what it found to compliment the text thrown at it…

Rant Seed: Those who control the masses are moving ever quickly onto the frontline of mass control, they have stepped up the stakes, they will stop at nothing to further their agenda.

•     Transformer AI: If you are "on the fence", or are unsure, you will be quickly turned into a corpse by the hand of the "warping" corporations that have taken over the current government. This is not a conspiracy, it is the global agenda being advanced by individuals and even corporations who control…

•     (another prompt from same seed) - In this sense, they are not alone, they're part of a very long line of individuals and groups who have been manipulating the people for decades and years, even though they may not believe it. One of the most notable examples of this is the ascendancy of the false "moral authority" figure of Pope Francis. These people know nothing, and they're mostly merely playing cat and mouse…


Rant Seed: Take into consideration that this is all done out of fear, for they have a secret that must not be revealed, it must be veiled at all costs. If the secret gets out, they will be forced to bow down to the inherited consciousness of this global corporeal infrastructure.

•     Transformer AI: They need to make sure that any attempt at a passive approach on the part of this individual/entity is stifled in advance by any action that might give them new life. The only hope of survival comes from a passive approach where the individual/entity chooses the rules of the game they are playing, i.e. - the group takes sides and defines the rules and then they build their dynamic around it.

But the world seems to be increasingly being controlled by the individual who chooses the rules of the game. Our modern world is an anarchy of personal control


Rant Seed: Their creed; never sever the royal bloodline, keep it pure and, force, impose tyranny onto the greater population.

•     Transformer AI: When this is complete, the wicked will follow the ruling spiritual power, its will be the target, and the rest of us will have to live in fear. The Aztec Council of Ten was initiated in the 12th year of Aztec rule, as it was revealed in 9th year of Aztec period, it had 22 provinces, now these 23 provinces must be supported, and make way for the new Empire of the Seven Kingdoms.

Analysis of the last seed: It is generally understood that there are 12 ruling class families, or bloodlines, however, this: “make way for the new Empire of the Seven Kingdoms” most likely refers to the seven continental land masses, or nation states coagulated into one cohesive unit, bound by a mono-fiat currency to govern all.

(At this stage, I tried to pull the AI’s analysis of the text in a different direction, by replacing ‘Ruling Class’ with a mythological alien threat… it didn’t miss a beat… weird)

Rant Seed: By decree of the Christ energy the Anunnaki were never to inherit this planet, it is for those who were born in its womb.

The symbiotic dance of evolution, the aeons required to form a consciousness within the matrix of mother Gaia was usurped, stolen from its inhabitants by a blood sucking lower forth energy monster (collective) of perversion who knows the true consciousness of mother Gaia can never belong to them.

•     Transformer AI: Those who think they will gain consciousness for salvation can only gain humanity from the ashes of their own selfishness by accepting the ancient evil of the An

(the character set was truncated at ‘An’, so I re-seeded with the statement it spit out and it continued…)
•      unnaki and believing in a heavenly Father, not the Antichrist and Lucifer.

Rant Seed: They are angry, and they are afraid (...and hell hath no furry like the unelected royal elite who understands they must one day bow down to man) ...

•     Transformer AI: One of the starkest indictments of what their minds are capable of is the insulting comment that 'Hunters don't like dinner guests...'

Rant Seed: That is, the being they themselves brought forth by denying the universal laws of creation, the laws set forth by the prime creator

At this stage I didn’t have an ending but wondered how it would finish the truncated text. It spit this out…

•     Transformer AI: means no one, or anything for that matter, can be the sum and sum of the divine essence…

Fun and curious tool, Rick. Thanks for sharing. Now, I just have to find a way to make it respond properly to screenwriting, lol.

Good effort, Gum.

Yeah, once you get a feel of how it "thinks" , it's pretty good.

You have to keep it focused and use vocabulary that suits the tone you want to achieve, but if you do that it can come up with some really interesting stuff.
