The world has a new AI toy, and it’s called GPT-3. The latest iteration of OpenAI’s text generating model has left many starstruck by its abilities – although its hype may be too much.
GPT-3 is a machine learning system that has been fed 45TB of text data, an unprecedented amount. All that training allows it to generate sorts of written content: stories, code, legal jargon, all based on just a few input words or sentences. And the beta test has already produced some jaw-dropping results. But after some initially promising results, GPT-3 is facing more scrutiny.
