There's something for everyone.
Unless you've been living under a rock the past few weeks, I bet you've seen a lot of discussions about GPT-3, OpenAI's newest language model. Think of GPT-3 as an extremely sophisticated text predictor—it has effectively ingested all the information on the internet to provide you with statistically plausible answers. I can literally hear someone yelling "What about fake news?" back there.
Sure, fake news might teach our favorite AI something it isn't meant to. But take a moment to look at the positives this can have for the world instead. And keep in mind that GPT-3 isn't totally there yet—as founder and CEO, Sam Altman believes.
“The GPT-3 hype is way too much....AI is going to change the world, but GPT-3 is just a very early glimpse.”
Sam Altman, CEO, OpenAI
There have been many interesting applications posted by early beta users using the GPT-3 language. We've reposted here the ones we're most excited about!
GPT-3 for spreadsheets
When someone says "new AI tool", the first thing we at Airboxr think of is: "Does it work with spreadsheets?" So here's one that we're totally psyched about—using a GSheets function to pull publicly available information (without integrating with any external API's!).
GPT-3 for healthy eating.
If you're more of an app person and care about your diet, there could be this app soon!
GPT-3 for designers.
Now you can get clients to tell you what they want and build exactly that. It will be fascinating to see what GPT-3 does with instructions to build "something more vibrant".
GPT-3 for bloggers.
Well, now you can have your GPT assistant write out the storyline and you can focus on the editing.
GPT-3 for jobseekers.
Don't you just hate building a CV?
GPT-3 for web developers.
You can now just focus on finessing the design.
GPT-3 for the religious.
Is there a God?
GPT-3 for poets.
You can just focus on admiring your work.
This isn't exhaustive and OpenAI is only getting started. But one thing is for sure, that the way we access the internet to accelerate our learning is going to change forever. Soon, we will all have our Alfred's—a personal butler who knows everything and is willing to lend us a ear (through our AirPods, obviously). If you'd like to get a quick primer on GPT-3, I suggest reading this article.
The future is (nearly) here.
