Shreya Shankar: LaTeX equations

Jul 19, 2020

Every science, math or engineering student knows the pain of getting LaTeX to lay out equations correctly–sometimes it can seem harder than the problem you were working on in the first place! But now Shreya Shankar, machine learning engineer at Viaduct.ai, has managed to get GPT-3 to produce remarkable, if not exactly bulletproof, results generating LaTeX code from natural language.

Re-training your brain to work in the quite unique (and utterly fascinating) way GPT-3 "prompts" work is something we'll be hearing about from a lot more engineers in the near future!
