OpenAI removes waitlist for DALL-E text-to-image generator

OpenAI has removed the waitlist for its DALL-E service and the text-to-image generator is now publicly available.

The original DALL-E debuted in January 2021 to much fanfare. In April this year, DALL-E 2 was released with significant improvements.

Interest around DALL-E has somewhat waned over the past year in favour of rivals such as Midjourney and Stable Diffusion.

While it’s subjective which...

OpenAI’s GPT-3 is a convincing philosopher

A study has found that OpenAI’s GPT-3 is capable of being indistinguishable from a human philosopher.

The now infamous GPT-3 is a powerful autoregressive language model that uses deep learning to produce human-like text.

Eric Schwitzgebel, Anna Strasser, and Matthew Crosby set out to find out whether GPT-3 can replicate a human philosopher.

The team “fine-tuned” GPT-3 based on philosopher Daniel Dennet’s corpus. Ten philosophical questions were then...

OpenAI now allows developers to customise GPT-3 models

OpenAI is making it easy for developers to “fine-tune” GPT-3, enabling custom models for their applications.

The company says that existing datasets of “virtually any shape and size” can be used for custom models.

A single command in the OpenAI command-line tool, alongside a user-provided file, is all that it takes to begin training. The custom GPT-3 model will then be available for use in OpenAI’s API immediately.

One customer says that it was...

OpenAI removes GPT-3 API waitlist and opens applications for all developers

OpenAI has removed the waitlist to access its GPT-3 API which means any developer can apply to get started.

The AI giant unveiled GPT-3 in May last year to a mixed reception. Few doubted GPT-3’s impressive ability to generate text similar to a human writer, but many expressed concerns about the societal impact.

Fake news and propaganda are already difficult to counter even when it’s being generated in relatively limited amounts by human writers. The ability for...

OpenAI’s latest model can summarise those tl;dr books

OpenAI has unveiled a new model that tests scalable alignment techniques by summarising those tl;dr (too long; didn’t read) books.

The model works by first summarising small sections of a book before summarising those summaries into a higher-level summary. It carries on this way – hence being a great scalable alignment test – to summarise as little or as much as desired.

You can view the complete steps on OpenAI’s website but here’s an example of where you can...

GitHub releases an AI-powered copilot to help improve code

GitHub is helping developers to speed up and clean up their code with a new AI-powered tool that it calls Copilot.

GitHub Copilot uses an AI system from OpenAI known as OpenAI Codex. The system claims to have a broad knowledge of how people use code and claims to be “significantly more capable than GPT-3” in generating code.

By drawing context from the code that a developer is working on, the system is able to suggest entire lines or...

OpenAI’s latest neural network creates images from written descriptions

OpenAI has debuted its latest jaw-dropping innovation, an image-generating neural network called DALL·E.

DALL·E is a 12-billion parameter version of GPT-3 which is trained to generate images from text descriptions.

“We find that DALL·E is able to create plausible images for a great variety of sentences that explore the compositional structure of language,“ OpenAI explains.

Generated images can range from drawings, to objects, and even manipulated...

Medical chatbot using OpenAI’s GPT-3 told a fake patient to kill themselves

We’re used to medical chatbots giving dangerous advice, but one based on OpenAI’s GPT-3 took it much further.

If you’ve been living under a rock, GPT-3 is essentially a very clever text generator that’s been making various headlines in recent months. Only Microsoft has permission to use it for commercial purposes after securing exclusive rights last month.

In a world of fake news and misinformation, text generators like GPT-3 could one day have very concerning...

Microsoft is granted exclusive rights to use OpenAI’s GPT-3

Microsoft and OpenAI's close relationship has taken another leap forward with the former gaining exclusive GPT-3 access.

GPT-3 has been the talk of the AI town in recent months. OpenAI’s innovation can help to create convincing articles and the company once deemed it too dangerous to release in a world where misinformation and fake news is already problematic.

OpenAI never made GPT-3 publicly available but instead provided access to a limited number of trusted...

Expert calls out ‘misleading’ claim that OpenAI’s GPT-3 wrote a full article

AI expert Jarno Duursma has called out a misleading article in The Guardian which claims to have been written entirely by OpenAI’s GPT-3.

GPT-3 has made plenty of headlines in recent months. The coverage is warranted, GPT-3 is certainly impressive—but many of the claims of its current capabilities are greatly exaggerated.

The headline of the article which Duursma questions is: "A robot wrote this entire article. Are you scared yet, human?"

It's a headline...
