Generate text in English

This language model is based on a simple stack of gated recurrent layers. It was trained by Wolfram Research in 2018 using teacher forcing on sequences of length 80. English-language models are often used to improve the performance of other systems, such as speech-to-text applications.

Number of layers: 8 | Parameter count: 4,144,930 | Trained size: 17 MB |

Get the pre-trained network:

Predict the next character of a given sequence:

Get the top 15 probabilities:

In[3]:= |

Plot the top 15 probabilities:

Generate text efficiently with NetStateObject. A built-in option for temperature sampling is available in Wolfram Language 12.0, while it has to be implemented explicitly in earlier versions.

In[5]:= |

Generate for 100 steps using “hello” as an initial string:

In[6]:= |

Out[6]= |

The third optional argument is a “temperature” parameter that scales the input to the final softmax. A high temperature flattens the distribution from which characters are sampled, increasing the probability of extracting less likely characters:

In[7]:= |

Out[7]= |

Decreasing the temperature sharpens the peaks of the sampling distribution, further decreasing the probability of extracting less likely characters:

In[8]:= |

Out[8]= |

Very high temperature settings are equivalent to random sampling:

In[9]:= |

Out[9]= |

Very low temperature settings are equivalent to always picking the character with maximum probability. It is typical for sampling to “get stuck in a loop”:

In[10]:= |

Out[10]= |

Define a function that takes a string and guesses the next character as it reads, showing the predictions in a grid. The input string is shown on top, while the top 5 predictions are aligned below each character, starting from more likely guesses. For each prediction, the intensity of the color is proportional to the probability:

In[11]:= |

In[12]:= |

Out[12]= |

In[13]:= |

Out[13]= |

In[14]:= |

Out[14]= |

Define a function to complete a partial word by sampling with the model. Keep generating until a non-letter character is found:

In[15]:= |

Autocomplete a list of words:

In[16]:= |

Out[16]= |

Create “fantasy” words:

In[17]:= |

Inspect the sizes of all arrays in the net:
