The blank page. A writer's greatest fear. Writers block delays progress in writing international standards. Once there's a draft, progress is faster. It's easier being a critic. OpenAI GPT-2 is a complete-my-thought type of AI. Given a first paragraph, GPT-2 will continue it by writing what it anticipates you would say next. You may have read about GPT-2 being used by students to write term papers. GPT-2 writes a mediocre C-grade term paper, but it's a useful starting point. We're using GPT-2 to draft the first world standards document drafted by AI. It's a 3-step process. A group of domain experts define the topics to be covered using mind mapping software, such as open source FreeMind. A mind map is a hierarchy of topics, a spider graph. With that mind map as a guide, the group leader can quickly write a concise one-paragraph intro for each topic. Then feed that into GPT-2. It outputs one page per topic to produce a first draft. Experts then edit that draft as usual. Not writing the first draft by hand saves time. Open source GPT-2 does the job in minutes. We're running GPT-2 on an ordinary laptop, not on GPUs, not on the cloud. https://github.com/robinrowe/gpt-2
