The internet is swooning over OpenAI's new artificial intelligence API. It's called GPT-3, and it's a big deal.
GPT-3 is basically an autocomplete. But it doesn't just finish your sentences— it writes entire paragraphs or essays for you. And it's essentially omniscient.
Most of today's AI models focus on prediction. Give a model some text, and it'll classify it as spam or not spam. Give it an image, and it'll tell you what kind of object it is. This same prediction technology is used in self-driving cars: provide a LIDAR feed, destination, and a map, and an autonomous vehicle algorithm will decide whether to accelerate, brake, or turn.
GPT-3 is different because it creates.
GPT-3 is a text-generation API. You give it a topic, and it spits back a (hopefully) coherent passage. It learns over time, tracking not just what it thinks your topic is about, but how you talk about that topic. The results are surprisingly good.
In fact, we just generated the rest of that sentence with GPT-3:
The implications of the technology are huge.
Text generation is foundational to how we communicate online. And GPT-3 is really, really good at it. Here are some examples of how people are using GPT-3:
This person used GPT-3 to automatically generate a cover letter from a job description and a resume. This person used GPT-3 to generate React components based on descriptions of a UI.
The implications are also scary. Combine GPT-3 and a great voice API, and suddenly we're not going to know whether we're talking to a robot or a human. Seed GPT-3 with propaganda and it'll generate infinite amounts of fake news, making it difficult to tell what's real or not.
OpenAI was founded to develop friendly AI in a way that benefits humanity as a whole. As they birth one of the most powerful artificial intelligences in existence, we hope they live up to their mission.
Hippo, a home insurance startup and competitor to Lemonade, announced a $150 million Series E at a $1.5 billion valuation. The company currently sells policies in 29 states and plans to go public in 2021. It's also on track to earn over $100 million in revenue this year due to low interest rates, which has resulted in more people purchasing homes.
Arrive Outdoors, an LA-based gear rental startup, raised $4.75 million in seed funding. Arrive allows customers to rent outdoor gear for a variety of different activities, including skiing, camping, and hiking.
Qumulo, a Seattle-based data intelligence company, recently raised a $125 million Series E. The round has propelled them into unicorn status, with a new valuation of $1.2 billion. Launched in 2012, Qumolo provides solutions to help customers manage large amounts of file data.
Di satu Januari, lupakanlah sengketa
Separuh nafas jiwaku... sirna
Di pagi Januari, yang kita harungi bersama
Bahagia selalu dimiliki, bertahun menjalani
Naluri berkata di setiap langkah-langkahmu
Dua langit tlah membaur di suatu cakrawala
Biarlah layar terkembang, menderu ombakmu menabuh pantai
Kuingin menyeberang, melintas pulau dan lautan
Sebelas Januari bertemu karena kita ini manusia
Kau basuh diriku dengan sejuta warna
Membiru lautmu memeluk pasir
Menanti setiap detik, ku hitung waktunya
Tak dapat ku kawal perasaan ini
Maafkan salahku saat-saat itu padamu
Biar diriku saja menjawab semua cinta
Biarkan kujawab semua dusta
Menguning bulanmu mengetuk malam
Mesra jemarimu belai sukmaku
Membias bintangmu menghias hidup
Belahan jiwa yang tertinggal
Kala tatap matamu sapa jiwaku
Januari lekas berganti
Kian hangat dalam ingatan
Sampai disini kisah kita
Kian hangat dalam ingatan
Hari ini tak harus ku sendiri yang menanti saat ini
Separuh nafas jiwaku... berakhir d…
