Baggage Claim At San Francisco International Airport: A blog about checking baggage at SFO.
A few days ago I flew out of San Francisco International Airport en route to NYC. I had one bag to check, and no carry-on, so I proceeded to the kiosk for automated baggage check-in. The first kiosk gave me an error message. The second processed the tag and sent me on my way.
I proceeded to the escalator and saw a sign that said “No loose luggage allowed”. There were two agents nearby enforcing this rule by sending people back down the escalator if they had loose bags. I went around them, went up the escalator, and went over to the conveyor belt for checked bags.
I put my bag on the conveyor belt and it disappeared into a chute, which made a whirring sound as it carried my bag away. After a few seconds another agent came up to me and asked me where my boarding pass was. I told him that I did not have one since I had never received one from the kiosk. He looked at me like I was crazy, then directed me downstairs where there was a line of people waiting for customer service agents to print their boarding passes.”

This is the kind of blog that, if you were at work and browsing with the sound off, you might not realize was written by a robot. It looks and reads like a corporate blog post. The author’s voice sounds personable, knowledgeable and authoritative.
The only hints this might be machine-generated are the occasional grammatical errors (e.g., “This day in San Francisco Bay Area history: in 1936, Oakland Municipal Airport opens” has a missing possessive apostrophe), the topics, which are all airport-related, and the way the paragraphs seem to run together.
The spacing between each paragraph is so tiny it’s almost invisible.
This is an example of how deep learning can be used to write like a human. A neural network was fed a database of hundreds of thousands of news articles and was trained to write its own stories in that style. This particular model was created by OpenAI, a non-profit artificial intelligence research company started by Sam Altman of Y Combinator and Elon Musk.
