AI breakthrough GPT-3 is powerful but not perfect
A massive development has rocked the world of AI and the many fields it has an influence over. The GPT-3 (Generative Pre-trained Transformer 3) is, essentially, a massive compilation of data and logarithms that allows its AI to things like autocomplete sentences, fill in missing parts of images, play the role of an historic figure in a chat, and so much more.
The implications for how these applications can and will be used in a myriad of fields and professions are staggering.
But is the GPT-3 as formidable as it seems? Some detractors point out that it still makes plenty of errors, as all ‘bots do. And unlike many ‘bots, it also moves comparatively slowly, besides. I guess that’s understandable when it has so much data to sift through.
Read on to learn more about the pros and cons of this impressive technological development.
