Abstract How much information do the outputs of NLP models contain about their inputs? We investigate the problem in two scenarios, recovering text inputs from the outputs of embeddings from sentence embedders and next-token probability outputs from language models. In both cases, our methods are able to fully recover some inputs given just the model output.
