Can an AI be trained to generate the outline of a story?

I know that one of the recent fads right now is to train a neural network to generate screenplays and new episodes of e.g. the Friends or The Simpsons, and that's fine: it's interesting and might be ...

Will parameter sweeping on one split of data followed by cross validation discover the right hyperparameters?

Let's call our dataset splits train/test/evaluate. We're in a situation where we require months of data so we prefer to use the evaluation dataset as infrequently as possible to avoid polluting our ...

Can some one help me understand this paragraph from Nvidia's progressive gan paper?

Furthermore, we observe that mode collapses traditionally plaguing GANs tend to happen very quickly, over the course of a dozen minibatches. Commonly they start when the discriminator overshoots, ...

Why would you implement the position-wise feed-forward network of the transformer with convolution layers?

The Transformer model introduced in "Attention is all you need" by Vaswani et al. incorporates a so-called position-wise feed-forward network (FFN): In addition to attention sub-layers, each of the ...

Why do very deep non resnet architectures perform worse compared to shallower ones for the same iteration? Shouldn't they just train slower?

My understanding of the vanishing gradient problem in deep networks is that as backprop progresses through the layers the gradients become small, and thus training progresses slower. I'm having a hard ...
