 GPT-3 | AI Based Language Generating Software | UPSC

      HEADLINES:

AI called GPT-3 (Generative Pre-trained Transformer 3 ) can now write like a human without thinking like one

      WHY IN NEWS:

GPT-3 is capable of producing excellent syntax.

SYLLABUS COVERED: GS 3: Science and Technology : AI

      CONTEXT: 

It boasts a wide range of vocabulary, owing to an large knowledge base from which it can generate thematically relevant sentences

AI BASED GPT-3 SOFTWARE

  • The AI-based language generating software GPT-3 has ability to produce passages of writing that are convincingly human-like.

It the ability to understand or perform any task a human can.

  • This invention reveals a natural yet aberrant collusion in people’s minds between the appearance of language and the capacity to think.

DEVELOPED BY

  • The program is created by Elon Musk’s OpenAI.
  • It may be considered or appears to exhibit, something like artificial general intelligence (AGI).

FEATURES

All it takes is the digestion of a database of human-produced language by a computer program, AI-based or not. 

  •  GPT-3 works by “digesting” colossal databases of language content to produce, “new”, synthesised language content.

LIMITATIONS

  • It is profoundly unable to reason or show any sign of “thinking”.
  • If the goal is to create a system that can chat, fair enough.
  • GPT-3 shows AI will certainly lead to better experiences than what has been available until now.
  • But if the goal is to get some thinking into the system, then we are nowhere near.

It appears that many of us fall victim of a mind-language causation fallacy.

  • GPT-3 is a language smoke machine, entirely hollow of any actual human trait or psyche.
  • It is just an algorithm, and there is no reason to expect that it could ever deliver any kind of reasoning.

      IASbhai WINDUP: 

FILLING IN THE GAPS

  • Part of the problem is the strong illusion of coherence we get from reading a passage produced by AI such as GPT-3 because of our own abilities.

Our brains were created by hundreds of thousands of years of evolution and tens of thousands of hours of biological development. 

  • To extract meaning from the world and construct a coherent account of any situation we analyse a lot.
  • When we read a GPT-3 output, our brain is doing most of the work.
  • We make sense that was never intended, simply because the language looks and feels coherent and thematically sound, and so we connect the dots.
