The Yandex team announced the launch of a new service based on the artificial intelligence system – Balaboba.
The service is able to add a small text based on the first phrase. As noted by the developers, “Balaboba” can complete a story, come up with a signature on Instagram or write a summary of the film. According to Yandex, “Balaboba” did not take a writing course, but composes texts in a few seconds as well as people.
You can try the new service at yandex.ru/lab/yalm. Developers warn potential users:
The neural network does not know what it says, and can say anything – if anything, do not be offended. When distributing the resulting texts, remember the responsibility. “
The service is based on a language model from the YaLM family (Yet another Language Model), which helps to memorize the rules of the language, choose suitable words and link them according to meaning. The service produces random sequels that could have been written on the Internet.
The user is prompted to compose the text “no style” or in several suggested styles, including conspiracy theories, toasts, advertising slogans, captions for Instagram, and so on.
