Tell a Story with AI using ‘Write With Transformer’ #MachineLearning #ArtificialIntelligence #Create #transformers @jamieabrew @huggingface

From the ‘Write with Transformer’ web app at


At the end of last year, @jamieabrew posted a “how-to” about writing with AI.  The guide walks you through using a web app, “Write With Transformer“, to generate text with AI. The web app is supported by the Transformers library which is maintained by Hugging Face. It contains some pretty impressive transformers like GPT-2, Distill-GPT2, and XLnet. In the app, each model has a brief description to guide users. Selecting a model opens up a web doc where you can paste/type a prompt OR hit TAB to get some model generated text. Check out the example below generated with Distill-GPT2:.

Human entered prompt and Distill-GPT2 generated options (in box).


The web app also allows for some tuning of the model(s) which gives the user a bit more flexibility. “Model size” and “max time” control how big the model is and how much time it has to predict the next word(s) in the series. “Temperature” and “top-p” allow the user to determine the creativity of the AI. Check out the examples below from @jamieabrew’s post of conservative vs creative AIs:

Here’s a typical continuation at low temperature:

And here’s one at high temperature:

If you’d like to try it out yourself you can head over to ‘Write With Transformer‘. If you’d like to learn more about Transformers check out this post or take a look at the Hugging Face code on  GitHub.

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more.
