What Is GPT-3, And How Does It Help Progress Our AI Journey?

Introduction

GPT-3 is a machine learning model build to achieve solid and accurate results on various natural language benchmarks. When it was introduced to the tech world, it grabbed immediate attention due to its stunning magnitude. It is the largest neural network with 175 billion parameters, beating all previous language models by inestimable margins. It can carry out a slew of natural language processing (NLP) tasks, including translation and Q & A. And it can deliver highly accurate results even in tasks that it has never been trained.

GPT-3 Settles a Specific AI Point of Debate

It is essential to highlight here that GPT-3 is around 100X bigger than GPT-2 and yet not very different from other GPTs as the underlying principles are the same, by and large. However, its performance has surpassed expectations, and the results it has produced are stunning.

Skills, Reasoning Abilities and Other Possibilities

Unrivaled Conversational Skills

  • Arram Sabeti, the Chief Executive Officer of ZeroCater used GPT-3 for an interview about Stoicism.
  • Mckay Wrigley designed an app called Bionicai to helping people learn anything, from philosophy from Aristotle to writing skills from Shakespeare.
  • Jordan Moore talked with the GPT-3 versions of Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, Cleopatra, and Kurt Cobain and posted the results on a Twitter thread.
  • Gwern did an excellent job further exploring the possibilities of the model regarding conversations and personification.

The Microsoft and GPT-3 Connection

Undoubtedly, there is ample evidence that GPT-3 is the next-generation artificial intelligence technology that can be leveraged to usher in a new breed of startups and applications. Developers are discovering innovative uses for the language model. Startups are keen to use GPT-3 to build new or augment existing products.

Conclusion

GPT-3 has produced results that are way beyond expectations. We certainly don’t know what to expect for the future. What’s sure is that GPT-3 is one of its kind and remains the most powerful neural network available. Every industry is looking at GPT-3 with bated breath and heightened expectations. The Center for Research on Foundation Models (CRFM), a new initiative from the Stanford Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence (HAI), has been laying the groundwork for path-breaking foundation models including GPT-3 and others. CRFM is committed to conducting interdisciplinary research to learn how to create efficient, robust, and multimodal foundation models that are ethically sound as well.
