Tired of paywalls? Let a machine dream up the articles you can't see.
Behind the paywall is an experiment that uses artificial intelligence to dream up the article that is hidden behind the paywall.
A text generating model tries to complete a given article using its headline and lead as its input. The model has been trained on thousands of old articles from The New York Times. With this training, it’s able to output a surprisingly convincing article using just the snippets of text not hidden by the paywall.
