The YandexGPT language model was first made available on May 17 in Alice’s new “Let’s Think About It” mode, and two million people have already taken advantage of its capabilities. The neural network was trained on Yandex supercomputers, the most powerful in Russia and Eastern Europe. He studied a large number of publicly available materials and hundreds of thousands of high-quality and meaningful texts created by company employees, authors from Yandex’s internal crowdsourcing platform, and AI trainers. The technology works in test mode: the neural network can make mistakes in the facts, which does not prevent it from creating something new.
Yandex told RG that with the help of YandexGPT in Masterpiece, you can now write a short story, compose a catchphrase, an advertisement, a party invitation, and just come up with a funny joke. The neural networks will formulate the title and provide cover options – images pre-generated by Masterroom users. Ready posts are posted to the general feed, where users can like, view popular works, and subscribe to each other.
The beta version of the Masterpiece app was unveiled on April 5. In total, it was downloaded almost 3.5 million times.
