After following the instructions to build the gpt-2 Docker image here, I started up a bash shell into the container:
docker run -it gpt-2 bash
And then ran:
python3 src/generate_unconditional_samples.py | tee /tmp/samples
This failed with this error:
AttributeError: module 'tensorflow' has no attribute 'sort'
A post here says to upgrade to Tensorflow 1.14.0 in the container, so running:
pip install tensorflow==1.14.0
And then retrying, text generated! Now to start playing and see what this provided models will generate!
