This web app, built by the Hugging Face team, is the official demo of the
repository's text generation capabilities.
The student of the now ubiquitous GPT-2 does not come short of its teacher’s expectations.
Obtained by distillation, DistilGPT-2 weighs 37% less, and is twice as fast as its OpenAI counterpart, while keeping the same generative power.

Built on the OpenAI GPT-2 model, the Hugging Face team has fine-tuned the small version on a tiny dataset (60MB of text) of Arxiv papers.
The targeted subject is Natural Language Processing, resulting in a very Linguistics/Deep Learning oriented generation.
The almighty king of text generation, GPT-2 comes in four available sizes, only three of which have been publicly made available. Feared for its fake news generation capabilities,
it currently stands as the most syntactically coherent model. A direct successor to the original GPT, it reinforces the already established pre-training/fine-tuning killer duo.

Overcoming the unidirectional limit while maintaining an independent masking algorithm based on permutation, XLNet improves upon the state-of-the-art autoregressive model that is TransformerXL. Using a bidirectional context while keeping its autoregressive approach, this model outperforms BERT on 20 tasks while keeping an impressive generative coherence.

Released by OpenAI, this seminal architecture has shown that large gains on several NLP tasks can be achieved by generative pre-training a language model
on unlabeled text before fine-tuning it on a downstream task.
