Special conference Mirko Degli Esposti

Entropy measures and natural language features of Artificial Intelligence generated texts

19.09.2019 - 19.09.2019

Mirko Degli Esposti est professeur de mathématiques, Vice-recteur de l'Université de Bologne, Italie, invité par le laboratoire AGM

Recent developments of A.I. show an increasing capability of generating artificial media and art contents, with huge impact on the creativity Industry. After a brief introduction, we concentrate on automatic text generation. 

In particular, Long Short-Term Memory (LSTM) networks have recently shown remarkable performance in several tasks dealing with natural language generation, such as image captioning or poetry composition. 

Yet, only few works have analyzed text generated by LSTMs in order to quantitatively evaluate to which extent such artificial texts resemble those generated by humans. For LSTM networks a temperature-like parameter controlling the generation process shows an optimal value---for which the produced texts are closest (in a way we will explain) to real language---consistent across all the different entropic and statistical features investigated.
