Open AI's GPT-3 for Makers

Tuesday, August 4, 2020 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

In July, Elon Musk's Open AI initiative released opened an API to access a new unsupervised natural language model called GPT-3. Remarkebly, it contains it contains 175 billion parameters which was trained on massive amounts of text from the Internet. By predicting what text can appropriately supplement a given prompt, it can generate coherent natural text responses on endless topics. 

In this talk, we will introduce the API and discuss its potential for creative use by makers. We will also have some fun and create some stories and examples together.

If people want to experiment with the model beforehand, they can apply, and wait, for access at Open AI or experiment through the app, AI Dungeon, that has incorporated GPT-3 if you switch to its Dragon Mode.
