The AI Detection Arms Race

AI’s generate fake news and AI’s detect them:

Grover is a strong detector of neural fake news precisely because it is simultaneously a state-of-the-art generator of neural fake news.

Why We Released Grover

Grover can both generate and detect AI text. The blog post explains why the research team from the University of Washington decided to release the Grover model despite OpenAI’s decision that GPT-2 (a similarly powerful text generation model) was “too dangerous to release.” They conclude that the real danger is in even bigger models, and that research must continue.
