Is this Headline
fake or not?
Half of the headlines are from the Huffington Post, the other half is machine generated.
We do not claim authenticity for any of these headlines.
The headlines are posted for comedic purposes and not meant to attack anyone.
If you find a headline offensive please get in touch via GitHub.
We made this to show two things:
- Neural networks have become incredibly good at producing grammatically correct but completely nonsensical text
- There are so many nonsensical headlines nowadays, it's hard to distinguish fake from real
The fake headlines were generated by a neural network.
We trained the network on 200'000 real headlines from the Huffington Post
using OpenAI's GPT-2.
If you want to experiment yourself, you can find the dataset here.
