GPT-3: the model that enables computers to write stories

Machine learning models are pushing the boundaries of what they can achieve in a monthly basis. This time, it is not virtual scenery or autonomous cars, it is about text generation, be it conversation, article writing or technical manuals. GPT-3 is created by OpenAI and is the latest and most powerful language model ever created. Just over a year earlier, its predecessor, GPT-2 was released which could already create syntactically correct sentences. The leap to the current version is huge: the neural network in GPT-2 had 1.5 billion parameters, GPT-3 has 175 billion! Due to the disruptive potential of this technology (discussed next), the model is not publicly available and OpenAI has released an API (like a webapp) for selected people to experiment with it without giving away the act...
