Here we will go over how to apply GPT-2, a generative deep learning model to generate text that mimics an input of a person's tweets. We will focus on preparing your input text so that it can be understood by the model & also how to make sure you aren't overfitting. Then we will
look at using GPT-2 on Google Colab with GPT2-simple, which is an easy way to use the library that allows you to train, run your model & manage refined models of GPT-2.
