GPT-3 may still has a long way to go before it can make autonomous decisions, but its potential and pitfalls are clear to see.

GPT-3 may just be an autocomplete program, but it is not as simple as it sounds.

It uses 175 billion parameters to complete its tasks, and the data it used to train on is mammoth, to say the least. To give you an idea, the English Wikipedia, which is composed of 6 million articles, composes only 0.6% of its training data.
