What is GPT-3?

GPT-3 is a machine learning model that was created by a company called OpenAI.

The name GPT-3 stands for Generative Pre-trained Transformer, and it's the 3rd version of this model that OpenAI has released.

Let's break down what is meant by Generative Pre-trained Transformer:

  • Generative: It is designed to generate content (natural language in this case).
  • Pre-trained: It is trained on content from the Internet.
  • Transformer: The type of machine learning algorithm used in GPT-3.

The GPT-3 machine learning model is very large, too big to download, so OpenAI hosts GPT-3 on a web server for developers to use over the Internet.
