Machine learning scripting software

Although long over-hyped, the true power of artificial intelligence (AI) is still under-appreciated. The AI-driven language generator GPT-3 is changing that. Anyone who has played with the latest version of OpenAI’s autoregressive language model is literally sockless — their socks having been blown off by its ability to create streams of language that are convincingly human. The famed Turing test — the British mathematician Alan Turing’s suggestion that we will have a “thinking machine” when its responses are indistinguishable from a human’s in a blind test — is now decidedly in the rearview mirror; GPT-3 is an exponential leap forward in taking deep learning into a new chapter of impact and potential.

Exclusively licensed by Microsoft from the Elon Musk-funded organization OpenAI, GPT-3 will soon be woven into many different Microsoft products; in time, one can imagine Word offering auto-suggestions of full sentences, paragraphs and even chapters of text, based on keywords and objectives required by an “author.”
