Drink Me: (Ab)Using a LLM to Compress Text


An exploration of text compression using a large language model trained to predict text sequences. The author tests the ability to extract and reproduce copyrighted text, achieving significant compression on known texts like 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland'.

  • LLMs may allow text compression.
  • Chapter 1 of 'Alice' was compressed 8%.
  • The full text achieved 15% size.
  • Decompression was successful.
  • Consistent results on GPU & CPU.
