  1. Art Machine - Colaboratory

    The first one of these Google Notebook things for generating images from a prompt by an AI that I’ve got to work. (via the b3ta newsletter)

  2. EleutherAI - text generation testing UI

    Another GPT-J-6B text-generating tool.

  3. Text Synth

    Easy, working thing that generates further text from a prompt using the GPT-J 6B or GPT-2 language models.
