Supposedly, this new "GPT-3" A.I. is supposed to be able write articles as well as a human, or almost as well. What can it be used for? It sounds like a Markov-chain on steroids, but I don't see the use if it writes text without any overall structure.

Could you write an outline for a story, and have it write the actual story?

Can it write dialogue? Speeches? Weather reports? Etc?

Maybe it will put local reporters out of business, where someone just types in the facts, and it writes a typical news article.

Supposedly, it will only be available via an API, so whomever uses it, won't have any (C)ontrol over there project. Maybe it's just a giant proof-of-concept.

I have seen samples of both creative (fiction/poetry) and informative writing with different inputs. The quality is chilling. I see no reason why it would have an inability to produce any of the material you have mentioned. The system requires an input of training data to output what you want. It pulls on all of its 'contextual' knowledge. It's main proven function is rewriting text. There are plenty of examples in which it can generate html/css froma visual description of how a website should look.

Let's give it a try and see what we get :)

@Kid posted a business idea generator in the general off-topic thread, powered by GP-3.

Skimming its ideas, I personally found a lot of them lackluster, but the implementation is probably more responsible for that than the AI. For example, users of the site are told to downvote anything that's "already been done." That might sound like it would promote novelty, but I think it just discourages the AI from pursuing good ideas... you know, the things that actually worked in a real market.

Anyway, feed it half a novel and see what happens ;) I've made a note to try it out (probably with non-fiction and/or elearning material) and see what I get.

Possibilities are endless. The demo on their site of it completing code blew my mind. Debating using it with my business some how.

First I have to learn how to interact with and get access to it...

Ah yes, that is Pieter Levels, he created a website called NomadList that makes $500k+ a year, along with a few others. Really known in the indie maker communities I am In. Really cool guy.

I’ve also figured out how to get access to it without applying for beta (yet), in case anyone wants to know: How to to get an early access to GPT-3 and how to talk to it

Oh my gosh, the AI Dungeon thing is cool. Such a hackery way to use the AI too. I love it.

I'm full of hacker ways of doing things :p I'm curious to see what it spits out with my idea, if I could get something out of it like what Levelsio did, but with specific businesses to look at buying. Could be something interesting to test and help narrow down criteria as I search.

I have GPT-3 and it's actually really incredible. Far more incredible than I thought it would be. The only thing is that Google is going to come out with their version soon which is more advanced than GPT-3.

How did you get access to GPT-3?

it's a cool sign of things to come if anything.

imagine what AI will be around in 20 years from now? 30?

I've always thought that people who are young now, may live to 150+ with the scientific advances AI will bring/create

one thing will be that children won't be able to understand how ai works in 5-10 years from now.

the technology will seem like magic.

I don't understand it now lol. But to be honest, even the Internet seems like magic to me. And electricity. And pretty much every technology.

This company copy.ai is a good example of how GPT-3 can be used. They use it to generate all kinds of marketing copy. Customers sign-up on a subscription basis and get access to the company's engine.

It's actually really impressive and they have a 7 day trial to check it out. I started playing around in it and it blew my mind - with just a few words to start with it can generate so many great ideas, and you can essentially "upvote" or ask the generator to focus on any output you like for it to use that as a basis for a new output.

I'm aware of how it's used but I don't understand how it's not plagiarism. As far as I understand it, it simply writes whatever it has in its "memory" using different words.

In Ancient Greece the concept of plagiarism did not exist, it was considered a privilege for the "original" author to have his words reused.

Nobody ever has an original thought.

The very idea of copyright is an attachment to ego.

I -for one - would welcome our Robot overlords.

Since topic resurfaced i'll post what i was doing with those GTP-3 sites (while they lasted).

A bit different way of getting ideas from IdeasAi.net that i was doing
was to enter word "sucks" into prompt instead of suggested
prompt for ideas for problem's solution.
Had fun with that and few novel ideas.
Unfortunately demand was so high that site closed this option.

So i headed to dungeons - AI Dungeons, that is.
I created quick session with some virtual AI person
and asked her (it was female) what sucks.
After few back and forth, chat turned to some fast food restaurant,
and i just learned that people don't like
that restaurant bills separately for everything
including salt or ketchup.

So, now, if i were up to open fast food restaurant,
i know how to piss customers off.
:)
