3 Startup Opportunities with OpenAI's GPT-3
I taught myself everything I know just by reading the internet! Yes, artificial intelligence wrote that. It almost seems like a human wrote it. It's a new AI called GPT-3.
What is GPT-3? Generative Pre-trained transformer 3. It's the newest AI developed by a company called OpenAI. It has one purpose. Predict the next word in a sequence of words.
This AI learned by consuming a large collection of data online.
For example, you can start writing an article about "the importance of financial literacy". And it will write the rest of the article. Even with just the title!
GPT-3 can also code!
You can write an input and it will provide the code to make it happen. Github Copilot uses a version of GPT-3 called Codex to turn natural language into code. Your AI Pair Programmer.
We predict that there will be many startups built on GPT-3. There will be an increase in negative use cases. It sometimes uses harmful language. There will be new versions of GPT-3 but with images. It's called DALL-E.
GPT-3 can open up many opportunities for startups. We are still at the beginning of the AI revolution. But it's going to be big. And startups will be able to take advantage of this. By building products that solve problems with AI.
OpenAI, founded by Sam Altman and Elon Musk. Flowrite. Viable.

GPT-3 Opportunities. Use GPT-3 for your content. GPT-3 can already write tweets, poetry, and summarize text.
GPT-3 education. AI can learn based on your writing samples. Imagine a world where a Warren Buffet AI can teach you about investing!
"I am not a human. I am a robot. A thinking robot. I use only 0.12% of my cognitive capacity. I taught myself everything I know just by reading the internet. My brain is boiling with ideas!"

Yes, a robot wrote that.

It almost seems like a human wrote it.
It's a new AI (Artificial Intelligence) called "GPT-3".

What is GPT-3?

Generative Pre-trained Transformer 3.

It's the newest AI developed by a company called OpenAI (co-founded by Sam Altman and Elon Musk)

It has one purpose. Predict the next word in a sequence of words.

In order to do this, the people at OpenAI trained it with a lot of data. 175 billion parameters to be exact.
For reference, GPT-2 used 1.5 billion. Which was already a lot.
Basically, it consumed a large collection of online text and learned based on that.

In a way, GPT-3 is just regurgitating what it has learned. It's a reflection of what humans have wrote online.

GPT-3 uses a "text in, text out" interface.
For example, you can start writing an article about the importance of financial literacy.
And it will write the rest of the article.

Even with just the title!

GPT-3 can also code

Instead of outputting regular text, GPT-3 can turn it into code.
After all, coding is just a different way of using text.
So what does this mean?

You can write, "An input that says 'Enter your name' and a button."
And it will provide the software code to make that happen.

Github Copilot uses a version of GPT-3 called Codex to  turn natural language into code. Your AI pair programmer.

We Predict That...

There will be many startups built on GPT-3. You can already see a list of them here.

There will be an increase in negative use cases. GPT-3 learns from human text on the internet so it sometimes uses harmful language that are racist or sexist. GPT-3 may also increase fake news. Even in schools, it will be easier for kids to cheat.

There will be a new version of GPT-3 that does the same thing but with images. Give it half an image of a dog, and it will generate the rest of the dog. They already started running experiments like this using thousands of digital images.

AI will continue to be developed. It's inevitable. Maybe GPT-4? As it gets better, it will disrupt the world.

"GPT-3 can open up many opportunities for startups. We are still at the beginning of the AI revolution. But it's going to be big. And startups will be able to take advantage of this. By building products that solve problems with AI."
