New AI language-generating System, GPT-3, Produces Human-Like Text But Makes Errors & Generates Misinformation Causing Mistrust & Skepticism.

SITUATION:
There is now a Third-generation language prediction model that “writes” text.
Model created in a series over past 3 years and versions.
Uses deep learning to produce human-like text.
Ambitious goal of steering the development of artificial general intelligence.
Something’s amiss: although its output is grammatical, & impressively idiomatic.
Doubters claim GPT-3 comprehension of the world is often seriously off;
Cannot really trust what it says. some say content output is delusional.

SIGNIFICANCE:
Generative Pre-trained Transformer 3 (GPT-3) is an autoregressive language model
Created by OpenAI, SF-based artificial Intelligence research laboratory.
The most exciting new arrival in the world of AI looks like it has a future.
Human evaluators have difficulty distinguishing articles written by humans.
Potential to advance beneficial & harmful applications of language models.
OpenAI will begin charging companies for access to GPT-3.Hoping that its system can soon power a wide variety of AI products and services

SOLUTIONS:
GPT-3 can answer questions, write creative fiction & generate news articles.
This predictive model has is a tunnel-vision understanding of how words relate to one another.
Published May 28 paper says GPT – 3 could cause potential harmful effects.
Researchers described in detail the potential “harmful effects of GPT-3”.
Includes “misinformation, spam, phishing, abuse of legal and governmental processesfraudulent academic essay writing & social engineering pretexting”
AI experts draw attention to dangers &d call for research on risk mitigation.
Is a subtle game-playing program that can outthink humanity’s finest.
Or also a mechanically advanced robot that backflips like an Olympian.
System GPT-3  learns text & how people use words in relation to other words.
Like a massive act of cutting and pasting process, stitching variations on text.
Rather than digging deeply for the concepts that underlie those texts

SAYS:
July 29, 2020 review in The New York Times,-“GPT-3—which can generate computer code and poetry, as well as prose—is not just “amazing”, “spooky”, and “humbling”, but also “more than a little terrifying”.- SaidFarhad Manjoo

” AI is going to change the world, but GPT-3 is just a very early glimpse. We have a lot still to figure out.”
