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...

Is journalism in danger?

Like to many other profesions, Artificial Intelligence is menacing to journalim. There are news-writing robots that work alongside humans to create smarter content but in the near future robots will be able to take over every role in the sector. As a networked society, software seems to get ready to supplement journalists and provide new solution for media companies. They probably can do a good job to maximize limited resources by automating processes,  providing a presence in multiple locations, even conducting data research, all  while cutting costs and increasing profit margin for media companies.It is amazing what levels of perfectionism tech-scientists are reaching but as well as a huge achievement it seems it will bring the loss of a whole profession. The thing is, where t...
