GPT-Neo 2.7B - Janeway

Model Description

GPT-Neo 2.7B-Janeway is a finetune created using EleutherAI's GPT-Neo 2.7B model.

Training data

The training data contains around 2210 ebooks, mostly in the sci-fi and fantasy genres. The dataset is based on the same dataset used by GPT-Neo-2.7B-Picard, with 20% more data in various genres. Some parts of the dataset have been prepended using the following text: [Genre: <genre1>,<genre2>]

How to use

You can use this model directly with a pipeline for text generation. This example generates a different sequence each time it's run:

>>> from transformers import pipeline
>>> generator = pipeline('text-generation', model='KoboldAI/GPT-Neo-2.7B-Janeway')
>>> generator("Welcome Captain Janeway, I apologize for the delay.", do_sample=True, min_length=50)
[{'generated_text': 'Welcome Captain Janeway, I apologize for the delay."\nIt's all right," Janeway said. "I'm certain that you're doing your best to keep me informed of what\'s going on."'}]

Limitations and Biases

GPT-Neo was trained as an autoregressive language model. This means that its core functionality is taking a string of text and predicting the next token. While language models are widely used for tasks other than this, there are a lot of unknowns with this work. GPT-Neo was trained on the Pile, a dataset known to contain profanity, lewd, and otherwise abrasive language. Depending on your usecase GPT-Neo may produce socially unacceptable text. See Sections 5 and 6 of the Pile paper for a more detailed analysis of the biases in the Pile. As with all language models, it is hard to predict in advance how GPT-Neo will respond to particular prompts and offensive content may occur without warning. We recommend having a human curate or filter the outputs before releasing them, both to censor undesirable content and to improve the quality of the results.
