Trump is particularly easy for AI to imitate

I mentioned in Fun with AI, the fun to be had using https://talktotransformer.com/ to generate text from the transformer-based GPT-2 AI.  Today I decided to see how well it could imitate Trump:

Trump said “there’s something going on,” with respect to “a group of very fine people on both sides” of the violence. “It’s very sad to see,” he said, when asked if there was a moral equivalency between the white supremacists and those who oppose them. “I thought it was very unfair that I had to go through this,” Trump said. “I thought it was very, very unfair. And then you had a group on both sides, and you had some very bad people in the middle, and you had a lot of really fine people on both sides. But you had a lot of people in the middle who were very bad. You saw that, right? You had a lot of bad people in the middle. And you saw that very strongly.”

On CNN, Chris Cuomo asked whether Trump had said that both sides were to blame. “That’s a statement that he made at a news conference today, not as the President,”

It is scary how accurately it captures Trump’s incoherent speech patterns.  Here’s another example:

Trump said “it’s the toughest jobs program there is,” adding that it was not a program for “people that want to take the Fifth Amendment, want to take the Fifth, or want to be very, very nice, it’s a jobs program,” he added, a nod to his criticism of the IRS for targeting tea party groups.

“The people who are getting the best deal, the people that are getting the most generous deal are the people who pay no income tax,” Trump said. “It is, in my opinion, one of the great programs.”

Trump’s tax proposal would reduce the number of individual income tax brackets from seven to three, eliminating the highest one rate (the 39.6 percent bracket) and replacing it with one that starts at 25 percent.

It also would eliminate the estate tax, which the administration says it would allow a wealthy person’s heirs to pass on at a reduced rate.

“We are really looking

And a third attempt:

Trump said “I don’t want to get in between a gentleman and his First Amendment rights. But I will say that it is absolutely disgraceful, if you want to know the truth. When I read this, I said, “How can the media do this?” It’s just so ridiculous, the level of dishonesty.”

And on a more personal note, he said he feels “personally” responsible.

“I’m very much into my second term, so, you know, I feel personally responsible,” Trump said.

Trump was also asked about his relationship with Republican leaders, specifically Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

“Well, I like him, I respect him,” he said. “I don’t think he’s very political. I think he’s a fine man, but I don’t think he’s been involved. I don’t think he cares about the country. And I think I know him much better than that.”

Is it possible that Trump is just an AI like GPT-2?

  1. No he is not. The AI is smarter.
