The creators of Cards Against Humanity are back for their annual Black Friday stunt, and this one is delightfully dystopian.

For Black Friday, we taught a computer how to write Cards Against Humanity cards.

Over the next 16 hours, our writers will battle this powerful card-writing algorithm to see who can write the most popular new pack of cards.

“Black Friday probably represents the worst things about our culture,” Cards Against Humanity co-creator Max Temkin said in a statement last year.

It’s a legitimate neural network, borrowed from the open source GPT-2 model created by AI research company OpenAI and trained specifically to write CAH cards.

“This was done by taking that pre-trained network and then training it further on the text of 44,000 white cards.

“We stopped the training once it could “consistently” produce cards matching the grammar and tone of the game,” it goes on. »

Authored by

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro on Friday said actor Leonardo DiCaprio had funded nonprofit groups that he claimed are partly responsible for widespread fires in the Amazon rainforest this year.

DiCaprio’s environmental organization Earth Alliance has pledged $5 million to help protect the Amazon after a surge in fires destroyed large parts of the rainforest in July and August.

Brazil’s president has previously suggested, without evidence, that nonprofit groups are setting fires in the Amazon. »
