Embracing Skynet - An exploration of GPT-3 and its potential applications

GPT-3 or Generative Pre-trained Transformer 3 (GPT-3) is an autoregressive language model that uses deep learning to produce human-like text.

A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to be accepted into the developer beta release of the pre-trained GPT-3 API and have been marvelling at the shockingly good performance of its generative capabilities.

This talk should serve as a quick intro to the API itself (including a quick demo) and an exploration of some of the creative applications people have managed to find for this powerful technology so far.
