GPT-3, the latest evolution in language technology – What is the big deal?

Over the summer 2020, the latest language model from OpenAI, called GPT-3, created a lot of buzz around the internet. Both within the AI community and outside people shared links to numerous examples on what GPT-3 could do, ranging from writing poetry and generating HTML code to answering philosophical questions on the meaning of life. In this seminar, Magnus Sahlgren and Ariel Ekgren from RISE will introduce language models in general, explain what is special about GPT-3 and how it can be used, and describe some of the technical aspects of GPT-3's inner workings.
